'Nuclear Slaves' At Fukushima - Dead Men Walking (Video) So much focus has been on the level of radiation spewed by the crippled Fukushima plant, the radioactive water killing the Pacific ocean as hundreds of tons get dumped into it every day, the effects seen in the ocean life, the spread to Canada and the US, but not much is being said about the workers being forced to work at the devastated plant, literally being made into "nuclear slaves."
ENENews highlights these workers and how thousands of unemployed Japanese workers were tricked into being on the front lines. The other day we saw a video, by Reuters on workers being exploited and I'll add that video again at the very end of the article, but some of the quotes are heartbreaking
"You can’t escape” — “They kept me in a shed” — “There’s nowhere else to go… Everyone is stuck” — “You’re brainwashed” — “After a few days, they’re thrown away”
Enforcers used to keep these "nuclear slaves" from complaining or leaving the jobs until their "labor brokers" are paid off, at which time the workers are most likely dead men walking anyway.
Now the news they are going to need foreign workers. I can see the job advertisement now, "Nuclear slaves needed, apply here."
Where are the screaming human rights activists now?
