Seven years after the start of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and one year after the Japanese government lifted evacuation orders in areas of Namie and Iitate, radiation levels remain too high for the safe return of thousands of Japanese citizen evacuees.
That is the conclusion of Greenpeace’s latest extensive radiation survey in the Fukushima region. As a result of being invited by local citizens, Greenpeace was able to continue its survey work in the Fukushima area, while also extending it to select homes in other highly contaminated exclusion zones.
