  • Report on the “Learn from Chernobyl” tour in Japan « Cinema Forum Fukushima
    after the congress He did confirm that he would attend this conference and agreed to speak for Japanese people Then I started looking for a doctor who can talk about an area that was not very badly but slightly contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster for instance Germany or Austria It was not easy to find a right one and finally I found Dr Doerte Siedentopf of Germany who continued her efforts to support Chernobyl over 20 years I proposed my plan to activists whom I had worked with on the tsunami debris issues in Japan and the plan became bigger and bigger Finally we decided on the basic idea for an event with three sections now it expanded from one stop to five stops I asked each supporting group to start building locally a doctors network and an evacuee support network There were various nasty obstructions in the planning process but finally five local committees were set up and started preparing for events Five cities are Yokohama in the Tokyo metropolitan area Shimada of the tsunami debris issue Osaka and Kita kyushu both with many evacuees from East Japan but the mayors are willing to burn tsunami debris and Fukuoka where Mr Koide s talk was to follow our event Events of this scale usually require at least six months of preparation but we had only two months due to the timing of the doctors visit to Japan in August There were many irregularities due to a lack of time Furthermore five local committees had different levels of experiences in event organization from almost professional to almost novice Maryann De Leo the director of Chernobyl Heart made a last minute cancellation but I had to find a replacement Irene Zabytko the Ukrainian American author and documentary film maker accepted to visit Japan and read out her writing on Chernobyl which you will hear later Please refer to Page 3 There is the summary of the events talks by US and German doctors the screening of the Academy Award winning Chernobyl Heart and the director s talk as well as health consultation by Japanese doctors with the foreign doctors as observers Dr Doerte Siedentopf talked about her personal and medical experiences with Chernobyl and Dr Jeffery Patterson spoke about the danger of nuclear testing and accidents There were also a mini symposium and or talks by evacuees from Fukushima and East Japan All committee members donors supporters exhibitors volunteer staff etc made their efforts to make their events successful Due to the very short notice we could not draw too many people to events please refer to the data section on Page 4 but the word started circulating even after the events In October I published this report and sent to parties involved including local committees supporting doctors media etc The Fukuoka committee chair even delivered by hand a copy to the governor of Fukuoka Prefecture in connection with their debris actions Evacuee mothers as well as anti nuclear groups use the report in their study meetings Doctors circles also noticed this report Next I will make a brief report on each city First Yokohama The radiation contamination in Yokohama is not as bad as Chiba and Tokyo but the soil contamination is about 300 400 Bq kg Many people made mini evacuation to Yokohama from the heavily contaminated Chiba and East Tokyo as husbands still can commute to Tokyo from Yokohama The committee consisted mainly of local mothers groups The health interviews were packed and many just walked in without reservations As we arranged only six doctors and dentists we could accommodate only 50 families due to the time constraint Many of them stayed on for the lectures with great enthusiasm Shimada City of Shizuoka Prefecture became famous nationwide for its burning of tsunami debris It is a small city with 100 thousand people The local committee was led by people involved in the local medical advocacy groups so over 20 local doctors attended the event They sent notices for the health consultation to all mandatory evacuees from Fukushima but none of them signed up People evacuated from the Tokyo area as well as local residents came to the consultation They also could not get any help from doctors within Shizuoka Prefecture and Dr Matsui of Gifu Pref and Dr Miyaka of Kyoto Pref were in charge of the consultation There was a talk by an evacuee from Futaba Township which is included in your handout Obviously those who immediately moved out had some advance knowledge In Osaka the local committee was led by debris activists We participated as part of their all day long event A doctor evacuated from Saitama saw patients in the consultation A mother evacuated from the Tokyo area was in tears when talking to the doctor about her child s thyroid disorder There were also talks by a journalist a Koriyama assembly woman and evacuees as well as a mini symposium with them In Fukuoka the committee was led by Mr Hara who has been involved in the grass roots activities for many decades In the mini symposium evacuees from Fukushima and East Japan expressed their opinions Ms Kazumi Watanabe who was hosted by HRN last month to talk about her mobile nursery project in Fukushima was interviewed at the end of the Fukuoka event In the evening the committee presented Mr Hiroaki Koide in a talk which I interpreted for the both foreign doctors while they were taking notes enthusiastically Kita Kyushu was the last stop The local committee was represented by Ms Satoko Murakami who led the local debris actions The former housewife Ms Murakami expressed her intention to run for the city assembly after realizing that nothing would change in the city unless people could change the politics The local doctor Kitagawa and the evacuee lawyer Saito participated in the mini symposium In Kita Kyushu and Fukuoka many health affects were reported after the test burning of tsunami debris in Kita
