SAYONARA GENPATSU: "GOODBYE NUCLEAR PLANTS"

September 19th represents the first anniversary of one of the largest nuclear protests in post-Fukushima Japan.

The event, called "Sayonara Genpatsu" ("Goodbye Nuclear Plants"), addressed the ongoing radiation, health, environmental and economic and criminal consequences of the March 11, 2011 multiple meltdowns at four reactors of the Fukushima Daichi atomic farm on the Pacific shore of central Japan.

In today's "Shadow," we revisit Fukushima by way of a first-hand report from YASUTERU YAMADA, co-founder of the Skilled Veterans Corps for Fukushima, and a situational overview from nuclear engineer and plant operator ARNIE GUNDERSEN of Fairewinds Associates [ fairewinds.com ].

Musical selections:

KODO - "Taiko Drum"; and
Charlie King - "Acceptable Risks" [ charlieking.org ];
