“Fukushima, Never Again” tells the story of the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdowns in north east Japan in March of 2011 and exposes the cover-up by Tepco and the Japanese government. The film interviews the Mothers Of Fukushima, nuclear power experts and trade unionists who are fighting for justice and the protection of the children and the people of Japan and the world.
The residents and citizens were forced to buy their own geiger counters and radiation dosimeters in order to test their communities to find out if they were in danger. The government said contaminated soil in children’s school grounds was safe and then when the people found out it was contaminated and removed the top soil, which the government and TEPCO refused to decontaminate.
It also relays how the nuclear energy program for “peaceful atoms” was brought to Japan under the auspices of the US military occupation and also the criminal cover-up of the safety dangers of the plant by TEPCO and GE management which built the plant in Fukushima.
This documentary allows the voices of the people and workers to speak out about the reality of the disaster and what this means not only for the people of Japan but the people of the world as the US government and nuclear industry continue to push for more new plants and government subsidies. This film breaks the information blockade story line of the corporate media in Japan, the US and around the world that Fukushima is over.

この映画は、2011年東北・関東大震災によって引き起こされた福島第一原発事故にまつわる物語を、そして東電、日本政府による隠蔽を明らかにするものである。映画の中でフクシマの母親たち、原子力の専門家、労働組合員など、そして日本や世界の子どもや人々を守るために戦っている人にインタビューを重ねた。
住民や市民たちは、自前でガイガーカウンターや線量計で、自分たちのコミュニティーがどのぐらい危ない状態なのか測り始めた。政府は子どもたちの遊ぶ校庭は安全だと発表したが、人々は土を測り、汚染された表面を取り除く除染作業を行った。東電と政府が除染作業を行うことを拒否したからだ。
また、「核の平和利用」として始まった原子力政策が、東電やGE(この二社は福島第一発電所の建設に携わった)などの産業による管理と安全問題の隠蔽を続け、米占領軍の庇護を受けながら、どのようにして日本に持ち込まれたかという点も、追求する。
このドキュメンタリーは、原発震災のリアリティーについて、人々や労働者が本当に感じていることを伝えるものだ。そして、日本にいる人々にとってだけでなく、世界中の人々にとっても、今米国政府や原子力産業がさらに新しい原子力発電所に国の助成金をおとそうとしているような状況の中で、考えなければならない問題を描いている。そして、「フクシマは終った」と日本、アメリカ、そして世界の大手メディアが私たちの目と耳、口封じに、真っ向から立ち向かうものである。
