7 April 2011 - Tamara City, Japan. Tatsuko Okawara has been an organic farmer near Tamara City, 40km from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, for 30 years. She says that she is afraid for her children's future, and feels ashamed that she didn’t take action against the nuclear power station before it was too late. She no longer knows if she can continue as a farmer, as the soil in the area may be contaminated.
