Yoshioka Tatsuya, the director of Peace Boat, a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization, joins us to discuss his organization’s efforts to help distribute aid and supplies to quake-ravaged northeastern Japan. We discuss ways that people can help to contribute to the cause.
Medical doctor and anti-nuclear campaigner Helen Caldicott joins The Corbett Report to discuss her background and work opposing nuclear power from the days of the open-air nuclear weapons testing through the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl disasters through to today. We note the ways that governmental and intergovernmental organizations tried to cover up the true extent of previous nuclear disasters. We also discuss the crisis at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and the likely medical consequences that will result from the radiation that is leaking from the reactor cores.
Charles McJilton, the CEO and Executive Director of Second Harvest Japan, an organization that collects safe-to-consume food that became unsalable for various reasons from food companies and individual donors and distributes it to those in need. We discuss what supplies are needed in the earthquake-stricken area of northeastern Japan and how people in Japan and internationally can donate supplies or money to help fund the relief effort.
Japan is just tallying up the damage from the devestating earthquake that struck off the northeast coast on March 11th, but it is clear that this was one of the most powerful earthquakes in modern Japanese history. Now, some are asking whether this was a natural earthquake or if it was precipitated by human activities. Join us this week as we go in search of a man-made fingerprint on the 3/11 earthquake.
James Corbett joins Alex Jones of Infowars.com to discuss the unfolding crisis at the Fukushima nuclear reactor in the wake of the 3/11 earthquake.
