re-reported by RT.com as Japanese govt pushing Fukushima evacuees back to high radiation areas – Greenpeace Published time: 21 Feb, 2017 18:25
Fukushima survivors are being urged to return to the nuclear disaster site by the Japanese government despite radiation levels similar to Chernobyl, say Greenpeace.
Officials are planning to slash housing support for 6,000 people from the village of Iitate on March 31, when the evacuation order is due to be lifted just six years on from the reactor meltdown, reports rt.com.
The risk to health is on a par with the exclusion zone around the former Soviet reactor Chernobyl in what is now Ukraine – more than 30 years after it spewed plumes of killer fission, say Greenpeace Japan.
