You and I will never know the names of the people who have been cleaning up Fukushima for two years; the ones whose bodies are being deeply poisoned with radiation, the ones whose eyes and mouths are bleeding, the ones whose hair will fall out in clumps, the ones who will succumb to cancers, so that millions of others won’t have to. We will never find their stories in our whitewashed history books; they will be smuggled out of our memories, and there will be no mention of them in the news.
But you and I can - and must - ask what it means to start undoing a world where this is necessary.
