Makiko Sato writes from Japan:

I hear that in 1960, nearly 30 million petitions were sent and 100,000 citizens surrounded the Diet [parliament] building, trying to stop the signing of the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty. But last night [June 29], the record of the latter was broken.  According to the organizer, ultimately more than 150,000, turned up and surrounded the official residence of Prime Minister in Tokyo, in order to appeal against the restart of any of the currently operationable 50 Nuclear Power Plants, which are in temporary halts for regular inspections, out of order or probably broken.   
Some children in Fukushima have been already developing abnormalities in their thyroid glands, and perhaps those in Kanto area, especially in Chiba, as well, have been similarly suffering from the continued burning of contaminated rubbles from the north. Why such municipalities accept such incineration is for money paid with our tax money. So, we are sickening or killing children by accumulating our national debts.  (I feel sick.)
 And Fukushima Daiich has been and definitely other Nuclear Power Plants here in near future will be, controlled in terms of security by Magna BSP, an Israeli military firm.  Soon, this firm may take over all security sections in Japan, including those of banking, military and space control systems here.
