Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team Recieves a Message from Noam Chomsky

As the Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team is going to have a demonstration on February 23 in Shinjuku Tokyo, the team recieved a message from Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author.


The following is the Chomsky's message given to the Trial Team:


It is most disturbing -- in fact shocking -- to learn that hundreds of thousands of children remain in areas heavily affected by the Fukushima disaster, and doubtless at serious risk. There can surely be no justification for the failure to evacuate them to safety, without delay. I hope that their actions will bring an end to this cruel policy, which needlessly compounds a terrible catastrophe.

Noam Chomsky

    I was just in Fukushima in Dec 2012 and it is terrible and seriously devastating that thousands of chilren and millons of family remain in constant danger and without evacuation support. We are helping women, children

    I didn't know that Chomsky had mentioned about Fukushima.
    You know how serious this case could be by his remarks, because this is Noam Chomsky.
    Why has a greatest Hungarian Linguist turned his concern for children in Tohoku, not us Japanese..
