There is some news about discrimination against people living in Fukushima prefecture.
I was particularly surprised at the article which was posted by a famous Japanese blogger.
Her blog gets one million hits per month.
She received an email from a female reader living in Fukushima city.
The email is summarized bellow.
I live in Fukushima city which is about 60 kilometers away from Fukushima nuclear plant.
The government hasn’t called for evacuation in this area.
They say “” This area isn’t ‘immediately’ dangerous.””
The government is afraid of a panic because many people are living in Fukushima city even now.
I may be receiving radiation little by little every day.
Most of them living there can’t leave because they have a job and don’t have anywhere else to go.
I am 27 years old, was born in Fukushima city, and have never lived outside of Fukushima.
Fukushima was a place with delicious fruit and vegetables.
Fukushima people haven’t been able to get a job, get married, or get gasoline since the earthquake happened.
There is a rumor about an advertisement which Fukushima people are prohibited from entering stores.
People are afraid to even get close to Fukushima people.
I think that I must give up having children.
I want you to think about what it would be like to one day find yourself in a group of people who are discriminated against.
I wish that the massive earthquake didn’t happen.
I don’t know if this is true.
I’ll write my thought next post.
