Nearly half the children in Fukushima, Japan are suffering from the effects of radiation contamination Activists are accusing the Tokyo government of covering up the extent of the damage to children's health caused by the earthquake and subsequent meltdown of nuclear reactors in the Fukushima area. In May 2011, not long after the disaster, the government increased tenfold the 'safe' limits for radtiaion levels in schools. Now children are still attending schools where areas are cordoned off because they are radiation hotspots. The short film above shows small children setting off to school with badges to measure radiation and coping with the news that the radiation has caused thyroid cysts. Teachers, parents and communities from the Fukushima area have been in the forefront of the fight to expose the danger and to end nuclear power in the country.
