Dear all,

Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.

I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)

日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ! 1mSv/yの約束を守れ!

Launching a campaign to reestablish the limit of 1mSv/year in Japan! 「1ミリシーベルトの約束」世界に伝えよう!

Let's send a 1mSv/y card to your friends in the world!

(Posted by Mia)
UNSCEAR and the Japanese Government announced recently up to 20mSv/y for a long term period is safe after admitting decontamination work can't reduce the amount of radiation in the atmosphere. The Japanese Government not only raised the threshold of radiation dose in the atmosphere, but also in food, water, debris, manure, sewage. Also Tepco workers' threshold was raised since the Fukushima Disaster from 100mSv to 250mSv per 5 years.  The human body can't suddenly adjust to deal with such an amount of ionizing radiation. 
In Chernobyl, nobody has to live in areas where the radiation level is more than 5mSv/y unless they want to.  In Japan, the government applies the ICRP model for emergency situations as a normal one, and treats 20mSv/y areas as safe places to live so they do not have to evacuate people from such areas.  We shouldn’t allow this false sense of security to remain unchallenged, otherwise it could be foisted on the rest of the world as well.
Although ICRP doesn't consider internal exposure to ionizing radiation, 1mSv/y by the ICRP standard has been considered as an international standard for citizens that was based on the data of Hiroshima/Nagasaki nuclear bombs victims.
Radiological limits
Radiological Limits give radiation limits for workers, apprentices and students, and members of the public. The values given are recommended by international organisations such as Euratom, ICRP, and IAEA and the national German authorities. A typical radiological limit for radiation workers is 20 mSv/y (20 milli Sieverts per year). For members of the public, the radiological limit is much lower at 1 mSv/y.

The Japanese government agreed to the limits set by the ICRP (INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION ON RADIOLOGICAL PROTECTION) at ”1mSv”/year, set up after the Chernobyl accident. This standard was considered as the limit for people evacuation. But today, many children and their families go on living in areas above 1mSv/year, even after decontamination, without anything else being done. This limit was even raised to 20mSv/y with recommendations of half an hour per day outdoors for small children last year.
So we are more determined than ever since Japan was selected to host the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The country must take its responsibilities towards the Japanese people who live in areas with an exposure of more than 1mSv/y.
