Eight years have passed since then.

Everybody's data site initially expanded its network of radioactivity measurement rooms nationwide, and has been working since 2012 with a major goal of accumulating measurement data.
As a result, in the “East Japan Soil Becquerel Measurement Project”, soil was collected and measured at 3,400 locations in 17 prefectures with the cooperation of 4,000 people all over the country in three and a half years, and spread from Tohoku to Kanto It is up to expressing and expressing the actual situation of radioactive contamination on a map.

In November of last year, pushed by the loud voice of everyone's "I want to read the commentary!", It reached the issuance of "" Illustrated "17 metropolitan prefecture radioactivity measurement map + reading collection, and issued 16,000 copies in three months. It was up to you.
I wanted this map collection earlier, I received a lot of voices if I knew this early, but we are thinking that ... if I could do that, but now eight years have passed, It can not be imagined that anyone who has been waiting for this book to this extent is honestly imagined, but all the data site members are still chased by the correspondence of map collection with surprise.
In other words, everyone who continues to ask where the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident has caused, no, what is the current type of radioactive contamination and what kind of event it is. I am deeply intrigued by the fact that I came to all over the country. It is also encouraging that the past activities have never been useless.

On the other hand, the situation of the victims and evacuees is driven back under the name of “reconstruction” and health damage is revealed, homes and land are lost, family divisions, and neighborhoods Many people are still living with deep troubles and pains due to their immense predicament, such as losing communities. In particular, economic hardship is severe, and there are no jobs found in mother-infant families, nursing homes, new land, etc. With the termination of housing compensation, the stage is shifting to "poverty issues" far from "reconstruction" .
Under such circumstances, what can be done in the map collection of the data site? . .

This book was created by collecting and measuring soil for the purpose of scientifically grasping the actual situation of radioactive contamination with the power of citizens, and trying analysis by ourselves.
Some people who participated in soil collection want to know the value of their own place and feel relieved, and those who want to know the place with little pollution even if they want to move, compensation for what is a high pollution place Those who are not able to get a good job and who are put to sleep fall into the lawsuit material, and it has been transmitted that they are using map collections in various ways.
Some of you may have had an argument among the family, or you may have had a hard time because of differences in thinking with the neighbors.
We understand that the circumstances will be different, so there will be a variety of ways to use it.

I hope that this map collection can somehow help fill the unfilled gap. I think it would be an opportunity to change the direction of the battle point by picking even one of the seeds of the division that was planted by the radiation damage this time.
We predict that in the future, there will be situations in which scientific literacy will be asked about the actual situation of this radiation damage in various situations. At that time, I hope that you can utilize this collection of maps packed with the wisdom of the citizens.

And this year, with the new backing of all of you, we will start to create "English Edition / Maps" and declare that we will send out information to everyone in the world, and we will make a vow for the 9th year.

[Media] 3/10 (No. 2076) Tokyo Minpo was introduced on the color page

"8 years data on nuclear accident, let's know, publish a map of 17 prefectures of radioactivity, and keep measuring without weathering"
As a collection of maps, in particular in the map of Tokyo and the introduction of pollution analysis in it, and the pattern of "4 joint publication presentation meeting to tell the reality of Fukushima" held on February 3 .
As a measurement room in Tokyo, the comments of “Lab Asunaro” (Itabashi ward) Ushizaki and Mr. Fujikawa from the Citizen Radiation Measurement Room are also posted. You can also buy maps directly in these measuring rooms. Shofu runs a cafeteria using natural foods and pesticide-free vegetables, and Asnaro also performs flings on bargains such as clothes and handmade sundries (this sales will be used to pay for children in Fukushima).
If you are near you, it would be nice if you could carry your feet.

Since the text can not be published, an image will be posted.

【Media Coverage】 The evening paper Fuji (March 6 issue) was published in the information source

We had you take map collection largely in color page as "must read one to know radiation pollution more deeply" in evening paper Fuji "The information source"!

There are many male readers, so I was conscious of the outdoors and took up ash and other topics.
As for the evening paper, I have heard that the time they are selling is short and they have been sold out soon.
If you find a back number, please take a look.

【Media】 February 28 Released in "Big ISSUE" Japanese version 354

Special feature: I'm looking forward to hearing, keep communicating and keep telling-Fukushima in the 9th year

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident that has passed eight years. This year's report is also from the field by a journalist living in Fukushima.
We asked Mr. Arthur Binnard, a poet who was born in the United States, with a focus on "picture-story-playing" under the theme of thoughts on radiation and radioactivity. The story is also to Hiroshima, the way of life of human beings .... In addition, 4,000 volunteers participated in the measurement and made it easy to understand the current state of radioactive contamination. Interviewing the process and contents of the publication. It shows the ability and level of Japanese citizens' activities internationally. Furthermore, after 3.11, I continued to shoot the daily landscape of Fukushima and introduced Shuji Akagi who took 670,000 photos.
To the 9th year. What are the invisible radiations and the figures of people who live quietly?

* Big Issue is an attempt to create a place where citizens can work and work by themselves. In September 2003, by creating a high quality magazine and making it an exclusive sales business for homeless people, we tried to solve the homeless problem. It is not a remedy for homeless people (charity) but a business that offers work and supports independence. The Big Issue prototype was born in London in 1991.

[3/10 · Tokyo] Rabo Asunaro continuous course 30 "danger of reactivation and nuclear power plant-against old plant nuclear power, reactivation of Tokai Daini nuclear power plant-"

"Rabo Asnaro continuous course 30 "
"The restart and nuclear hazards
      Over aging nuclear power plant, Tokai second opposite through to the re-operation of the nuclear power plant "

Keidanren Nakanishi President talked about the nuclear power plant re-activated at a press conference on January 15, "I ought to use that I think should be promoted more and more. The energy of nuclear power for the sake of humanity". What does it mean to restart even if the cause of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident is not known or it has not converged yet? How do people in the affected Fukushima think of the fact that even eight years after the accident, they are plagued by the effects of radiation? In addition, decommissioning takes huge amounts of money. And it is in a situation where we do not know how to do the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant where the accident happened.
The Tokai Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which is the closest nuclear power plant from Tokyo, is about to be restarted. Following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, a regulation was introduced in which the operating period of the nuclear power plant was basically 40 years. However, it can be extended up to 20 years, subject to regulatory approval .
The Tokai Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is a 40- year-old gauze nuclear plant, and it has also suffered from 3.11 . In addition, there is a reprocessing plant that stores a large amount of high-level radioactive liquid waste in Tokai Village, and there is a risk of causing a tremendous scale of damage if combined accidents occur. However, in November last year, the Regulatory Commission approved a 20- year extension of operation.
The second nuclear power plant 96 million people live in the 30 km zone Tokai, is the primary densely populated in most surroundings in Japan. If an accident occurs, it is clear that Kanto will also be affected by the accident.
In this course, I would like to think together about how dangerous it is to restart the Tokai Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
