ASAHI SHIMBUN – Tons of contaminated water likely leaked from barriers at Fukushima plant
An estimated 225 tons of radioactive rainwater likely leaked from cracks in the barriers surrounding storage tanks at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, seeping into the surrounding soil, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Dec. 24.
The utility said this appears to be the largest amount of radioactive rainwater escaping to date from the barriers around tanks holding contaminated water. http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201312250044

Japan Times – Abe’s second strike agains

Japan Times – Abe’s second strike against freedoms

The Abe administration has reportedly started preparations for introducing the “crime of conspiracy” by revising the law on the punishment of organized crime and the control of proceeds resulting from crime.

Although it has not been decided when a revision bill will be submitted to the Diet, there is the danger that it will give the government a strong weapon to control civic movements, especially those that oppose government policies.

The recently enacted state secrets law will not only greatly limit people’s access to government information but also punish those who try to get secret information even if they didn’t know it was designated as secret. The introduction of the crime of conspiracy will further weaken freedoms that have already been hollowed out by the secrecy law. So it is important for citizens to start a widely based action to stop this move by the administration.

If the crime of conspiracy is introduced, one could be punished for joining others to plan a crime even if it is not actually carried out or even if no concrete preparations have been made — a huge departure from the current principle that arrests can be made only when a crime has actually been committed or attempted.

Film on ex-Japanese hostages in Iraq explores ‘personal responsibility’

A documentary film being shown across the country revisits Japanese civilians who were taken hostage by a militant group in Iraq in 2004, and received a hostile reception after being freed and returning home.

In making the film, director Megumi Ito interviewed two of the three former Japanese hostages, Nahoko Takato and Noriaki Imai.

Titled “Fallujah–War in Iraq, Japanese hostages and …,” the film also poses a question about the meaning of “personal responsibility,” which the hostages were criticized for lacking by politicians and the public. Based in Jordan, Takato is an aid worker in Iraq. To film her work, Ito accompanied her on a visit to Fallujah, where Takato, who was then helping Baghdad street children, was held hostage.

In the city, Ito filmed Takato studying newborn babies with congenital abnormalities, believed to be a result of exposure to depleted uranium. http://ajw.asahi.com/article/behind_news/social_affairs/AJ201312210013
