Democracy Now: Report: Japan Concealed Full Dangers of Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

A new independent report has revealed the Japanese government withheld information about the full dangers of last year’s nuclear disaster from its own people and from the United States. Reuters is reporting Japan’s then-prime minister ordered workers to remain at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant as fears mounted that a chain reaction at the plant would force the entire city of Tokyo to be evacuated. At the time, Japanese officials were fearing thousands of spent fuel rods stored at a damaged reactor would melt and spew radiation across large parts of the country.
