This video is no longer available on YouTube. It has been banned but why? This man simply wants to know what is going on. Please help him. (Contains a little swearing, understandably). Watch and pass on, let's get it viral.

I live not so far from a nuclear power station myself and I would feel the same way as this man. I would want to know the truth, no matter how bad.

It is disgusting that there are game shows on the TV and not up to the minute risk assessments and genuinely good advice for the health of the people. Some things are more important than the economic situation.

It is insulting not to be given the truth. I know some might think they are trying to avoid a panic but this kind of secrecy breeds fear, distrust and eventually hysteria.

During the World Wars and whenever things were dreadful in almost every case of this the human spirit prevailed and ordinary people often became heroes and angels. They made sacrifices and many selfless acts. You have to respect people and trust them in order to get the best from them.

I am sick of humans being treated like cattle by our governments. They are no better than us so why should they treat us like animals?

I really hope this manís honest plea goes viral and becomes an internet legend.

Thanks Scott. Unfortunately almost ALL Governments are selfish and greedy; caring only about
Their own lives. I feel sorry for this man and wish I could help him.
How do we do that??? Spread the word, YES!!! But in the meantime,
What about all the precious lives that can be lost, waiting for this
Sic disaster to happen. I wish, governments would think of all the negatives
Before they create monstrous nuclear plants that could end up
Endangering human lives; if things go wrong. WHO gave them Permission
To put our lives at stake???

I think I'm being cursed from all the forwarding I am doing already. But what other option are we left with? Luckily, the internet allows us to spread awareness, once the word is out, it will circulate, and is this worldwide knowldege that will ultimately become the tool for change.

It seems that we are on our own as the people of various countries; expecting truth and protection from our governments means jumping voluntarily in a deep black hole we will not be able to get out of. We could very easily find ourselves in the same postiion as is this poor, desperate man.

Another thing is that so much has happened and still ist all around the world at the moment ; natural disasters, chaos in the Middle East et. that the governmnents are taking advantage of the situation and just ignore and/or hide what they should not. So, it's up to us all to show them we ARE aware and we demand to be heard and we demand that all of our human rights be addressed.

So many of us already feel the same way, let's take advantage of our modern tools to protect ourselves from these negligent and ruthless politicians and rulers and act as a determined unit to bring these people to their knees and force them to do what they must, which is work FOR us not against us.

Thanks for the article Scott, will forward wherever I can.

Thanks Scott for the post. I think there are two different issues here. Number one, of course, is that the government didn't disclose the vital information regarding nuclear crisis. So subsequently the media failed to report those facts.
Secondly, for the fisrt few days, all but one channels had been broadcasting only quake and tsunami related news. I suppose people in not so severely hit areas gradually became fed up with the situation and wanted regular programs be resumed. I myself feel disgusted that those "regular programs" include silly game shows.

Thanks Scott...

I was going to write to You tube and complain about why the video was removed. Also I thought I would try and find out his login name and get a message though. Anyway, today, the video is back, not one but many... I have also put it on facebook.

With the TV stations, it would happen here too if there was a disaster, we would still get different programs on TV. I don't think Japan is much different to any other country. If not all are affected then life will still have to go on. How cruel that sounds but that is our Capitalist society today. In the words of a cockney, Some people don't give a monkey's to what's gone on... until it happens to them!!!

I would like to hear if from you if you disagree. Would like a different opinion so I can grow into a descent human being.

I hope and pray that the Japanese people find the strength and courage to deal with the tragedy which has befallen them.

Peace to Japan and it's beautiful people...

There a question, now I don't know the set up in Japan for complaining to the government... But why didn't he use the internet? He could have made a nuisance of himself contacting people etc...

Thank you all for your support of this and your valued comments. I pray that emergency information will be constantly available on at least one TV and radio channel and that important developments take priority over frivolous viewing.

I am sure Wooddragon is correct about all TV being the same the world over, after all, it is at least 90% led by the same Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) members (the only media corporations that are not in it are insignificant in their coverage).

I am sure you are also correct that some are apathetic unless it is happening to them or theirs. In fact I would take it farther and say that apathy becomes complicity. This attitude is appalling but it is sadly a fact of life as in the case of the people of Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan to name but a few.

It is not limited to nationality either. This New World Order (NWO) mentality has been around for as long as the Devil himself. The masses either allow it to go on and even buy into it and feed it. The Romans persecuted Christians, the Nazis murdered Jews and the American NWO has the Muslims to victimise. This is not a coincidence. This Satanic cult (NWO) has been around all that time and instrumental in shaping world politics ever since there were politics.

Some say that the tremendous power that is HAARP can create earthquakes. There is much evidence to suggest this is the case but whether you suspect that or not, the conspiracy to put deadly, fragile, explosive poison producing factories on top of known earthquake hotspots is undeniable. Whether induced or not, it was bound to happen sometime.

To answer your question, I believe the Frenchman in question had a video recording device but no computer and this is why it would end up, presumably on a friends blog site after that person tried to upload it to You Tube. It is possible that he was fortunate enough to have a computer but wanted to draw attention to those who were without and therefore were completely in the dark. It is also possible that proper information wasnít even available to those with computers because it was so secret. The end result is the same, information that should have been widely available was not and people were feeling angry for being kept in the dark. I hope we can all follow your lead and make nuisances of ourselves whenever we are treated so inhumanely.

Japanese Mayor Urges Evacuation After Discovering Government Ignored, Misled Him and His People About True Dangers of Nuclear Fa

There is a post by Kathi referring to the secrecy in these matters.

In its famous Brookhaven Report of 1957, the Atomic Energy Commission indicated what the results of a single major accident at a relatively small reactor 40 miles from a city might be:

3,000 to 4,000 deaths immediately from radiation poisoning,

50,000 deaths later on from radiation-induced injuries;

up to 150,000 square miles of land contaminated,
not to mention

contamination of water supplies and

evacuation of half a million people.

Pasted this on Kathy's thread as well.

I am not surprised, this happens all the time in all the countries. No more nuclear plants please, but that is possible only after finding viable alternatives. Governments are not interested in funding clean energy research. Even petroleum-based activities should be replaced to cut emission. Solar energy, the best option, but who cares?

Thank you for posting this Scott. A psychoanalyst told me that the government is trying to keep panic down, and trying to minimize trauma. Unfortunately, people need information and this feels like a conspiracy to those who feel betrayed already.
I think that the NWO and the GOP and all the ones who have a private/selfish agenda, are now defunct or on their way out because there is too much communication happening between people who share information about what is actually going on vs. what they would like people to believe (as they were able to do in the past). Now, as we take back our own destinies, we get to choose how we want to re-create the world. Clearly, their methods and ways don't work. Truth and goodness, cooperation and dare I say it, LOVE, must dominate our lives because it is the only way that makes any sense now.
To begin, we have to become what we want to become, NOW. That means, we can't use their tactics, of getting angry and avenging anything----quite the opposite---we need to take the higher path of our own souls----forgiveness and kindness---this is hard for some, perhaps, but it is the only option. As the world spins out further into turmoil these coming years, we will be faced with understanding this experientially, and we will be the ones to hold the Light for others as they wake up too.
