The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare forces Hiroshima City and Prefecture to file the ‘black rain’ lawsuit – Abe administration sacrifices the people because it doesn’t want all standards stipulated after the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident to be reviewed

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare forces Hiroshima City and Prefecture to file the ‘black rain’ lawsuit – Abe administration sacrifices the people because it doesn’t want all standards stipulated after the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident to be reviewed
No way! Oh, no, it was just we expected. However, we expected that the government would make a fair decision. The Hiroshima District Court ruled that Hiroshima City and Prefecture should issue A-bomb survivors health handbooks to 84 plaintiffs in the ‘black rain’ lawsuit. The defendants Hiroshima City and Prefecture decided to appeal the court ruling. According to Hiroshima City and Hiroshima Prefecture, they asked the government for ‘political judgment’ without appealing and strongly asked it to save A-bomb survivors. However, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare refused their request and urged them to appeal the ruling. I am speechless about the appeal, which squashes the feelings of the city and prefecture that have strongly asked the government to expand the scope of subjects to be saved. Twelve of the plaintiffs have already died and the remaining people in their 80s to 90s are forced to appeal again. I wonder how cruel the Japanese government can be.

The statement by a plaintiff of the Ikata nuclear power plant Hiroshima trial in the third article below has been spread. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare never accepts the district court decision because it does not want to admit the effects of ‘low dose internal exposure’ caused by black rain. Acceptance of this ruling will lead to review various safety standards stipulated after Fukushima nuclear power plant accident and accept significant expansion of compensation scope. Whatever may happen, the Abe administration puts more importance on money or nuclear power plant-related interests than the people. Shinzo Abe, do just one good thing and show it to us before you leave the administration.

I expected it might occur. But I’m at a loss for words.
Reportedly, the government intends to appeal the decision of the first trial.

The government is going to dispute with 84 A-bomb survivors in their 80s and 90s at this moment. What does it mean? What does it fight against?

The government is not going to save the people who have suffered for 75 years but it is going to confront them.
We have heard only bad news every day before August 15.

[Breaking News] “Black Rain” lawsuit Hiroshima City and Prefecture decide to appeal the ruling

On July 29, the Hiroshima District Court ordered the city and prefecture governments of Hiroshima to issue A-bomb survivor's health handbooks to all 84 plaintiffs in Hiroshima Prefecture who claim health problems caused by exposure to radioactive “black rain," which fell after the atomic bombing, outside the area covered by the government. It has been revealed on August 11 that the defendants the city and the prefecture have decide to appeal the ruling.

According to several officials concerned, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has urged the city and prefecture to appeal the Hiroshima District Court's decision. The city and prefectural, which have long asked the government to expand the area covered by the aid, had strongly asked the government to make a "political decision" instead of appealing and to provide relief for victims. The city and prefecture have accepted the appeal policy after consulting with the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the officials said.

Black Rain” lawsuit Please convey to Hiroshima City and Prefecture your voice saying never to appeal (within August 11)

The government (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) does want to accept the “black rain” ruling.

That’s because acknowledging the damage by “black rain” means admitting the effect of so-called “low-dose exposure (that is, exposure of less than 100 millisieverts), in particular “low-dose internal exposure” .

If the effects of “low-dose exposure” or “low-dose internal exposure” are acknowledge, the damage caused by the nuclear power plant accident and the scope of compensation have to be significantly expanded.

The “no-returnable zone,” “restricted residential area” and standard values for radioactive substances in food” have also to be strictly reviewed.

Furthermore, the policy to release tritium-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant and the plan to restart Rokkasho village reprocessing plant has to be reviewed.

In other words, “radiation safety myth” that has been requited for nuclear development in regardless of military use or commercial use will be destroyed .

Will the government (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) deny the effects of “low-dose exposure” and “low-dose internal exposure” in front of us in order to protect the nuclear power plant and nuclear (and international nuclear interest community that benefits from it)?

The government is going to abandon those who have suffered from radiation exposure for 75 years and yet have not been able to get any relief at the last moment and also discard the victims of any kind of radiation exposure, isn’t it?

By checking now, I have found that 12 out of 84 people have already died.
The government wastes a trillion yen or tens of billions yen on Go to travel campaign and Abeno masks, but they insists on finding the basis for the contribution of billions of yen needed to save “black rain” survivors as if to harass them.
It is impossible to have patriotism in a country like this.

Is there no justice in Japan?

Isn’t the government willing to respect the wishes of Hiroshima City and Prefecture?
For whom do they conduct administration?

Ichi

Harassment administration
Violence approval administration
Anti-social administration
Exploitation and extortion administration
I still have more to say.
Japanese government has final talk with Hiroshima Prefecture and City about appealing in “black rain” decision.
