Mothers in Fukushima talks about their living condition referring to the safety standards for the food contamination

Testimonies of the mothers in Fukushima filmed by the Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team. In the video, one of the mothers highlights the fact that regulatory standard for the food in the school meals at the primary schools in Koriyama City, Fukushima is 10 Bq/kg while the standard at the cafeteria of the offices of the Fukushima local government is 1 Bq/kg, suggesting that the government could sacrifice the health of children by lifting the safety standard higher than normal levels. In so doing, The government officials seem to believe that the promotion of the local consumption of food at the primary schools would make the impact of radioactive contamination in the community look smaller.

 

Also, the way in which this video presents the statements of the mothers by changing their voices and hiding their faces implies the mothers' fears of being blamed by their neighbours or other members of their community when they speak out the truth in the public.
