Babies and pregnant women are being rescued from the Fukushima Nuclear power plant fallout area despite Japanese government telling everyone within the 20-mile radius danger zone of the leaking plants to remain indoors where people are being radiated. A grassroots group began the high-risk rescue mission Monday.
The first eight of approximately 1000 women and babies to be rescued within the 20 miles radius left the area Monday with help by Connected Light according to the group’s co-founder, Yumi Kikuchi who contacted Dupré for help late Tuesday night.
Ms. Kikuchi is fundraiser for the newly created rapid response group, Connected Light. (See: “Radiation Coming,’ Japanese mother’s message to Americans, how to help,” Dupré, D., Examiner, March 17, 2011)
“As of today, everyone still inside 20 miles radius is being told by the government to stay in the house, which is too dangerous for babies and embryo,” stated Kikuchi in a telephone conversation shortly after she and her husband landed in Honolulu with their two children.
“Everyone is just leaving the people there. Nobody is going into the 20-mile radius area because they are too afraid of being radiated.”
Covert violence against women and children human rights violation
Kikuchi fears differ to those of most people.
“What I’m afraid of is that the same thing that happened in Iraq will happen in Japan,” Kikuchi said, referring to the human rights violation, the crime against humanity resulting in Iraq mothers of babies who are stillborn or with grotesque deformities.
“It’s the same as ‘Gulf War Babies” and babies in the U.S. Gulf Coast region,” she stated.
There has been no U.S. government support to rescue Gulf coast pregnant women and babies. Miscarriages are rampant there now according to reports from residents such as 13-year old Jessica Hagan (see Youtube) and others at forums.
“The sad thing is we won’t be able to prove the cause of the fallout injuries,” said Yumi, echoing Gulf Coast residents’ overwhelming frustrations.
Yumi confirmed leaked reports of what people are seeing and hearing from Japanese television, saying, “It is so sad. If they would just tell the people the truth.”
On March 17, a French citizen in Japan produced a Youtube demonstrating what is being aired on Japanese TV. He asks for the truth and evacuation and warns others in the world that the same injuries will happen to them as they are told there is nothing to worry about.

“They are telling everyone to stay inside. Unless your house has no windows or doors, it is dangerous to stay. Nobody’s being warned.”
“People are trying to get information to each other,” she said, before asking Dupré for information, saying the Japanese media blackout means Americans might have more news than she does.
“We have not four but 13 reactors out of control now. Thirteen reactors have lost capacity to cool. Once a reactor loses capacity to cool, they heat and begin releasing radiation. I do not believe they are not leaking.”
“Reactor #3 (using MOX fuel) is the most dangerous because it is releasing plutonium.”
Reactor #3 reports, however, have been less than forthcoming by mainstream news.
“Everyone in Japan will be impacted,” stated Kikuchi.
“The United States will be impacted with low-level radiation in the wind and rain. Meat eaters will be impacted most.”
“They will keep saying the risk is minimal, said Kikuchi who also asserted, “People do not want to believe the truth.”
“People do not understand. All television is saying is, ‘Don’t worry. There is no health danger.
“They say it is no more dangerous that a radiation machine.”
Kikuchi has two other children in Japan with her former husband who does not believe any danger exists so will not send the children to her.
Fallout’s future generations
Helen Caldicott, in her article, “Destroyer of Worlds” stated about nuclear energy:
“It is time the global community repudiated it – however economically painful in the short term that taking such a step would be. There is no other choice for the sake of future generations. (Dr. Helen Caldicott Fukushima statement: ‘Destroyer of Worlds’, Dupré, Examiner, March 17, 2011)
“Once the radiation is out in the environment, it will be in the food chain and it will cause cancer,” Kikuchi told Dupré.
“Plutonium goes to the lungs. Iodine goes to the thyroid. Cesium goes to the reproductive system. Strontium goes to the bones.
“The body will accumulate these and it will take about ten years for most people to die.”
People in Okinawa are opening their homes to Fukushima pregnant women and their babies according to Kikuchi, co-founder of the rescue mission group.
“Okinawa, Japan’s most southern island, has no nuclear power plants and is not earthquake prone.”
For the babies and pregnant mothers who are rescued to get to Okinawa, they must fly from Tokyo. A one-way flight from Tokyo is approximately $500.
“We need Americans to help.”
