Kimin: Japan's Forgotten People
Kimin: Japan’s Forgotten People (An E-book)
The dark, depressing story of Japan's 300,000 tsunami refugees. While the world’s Press fixates on the Fukushima evacuees, Japan’s tsunami victims have become its forgotten people. How did this happen?
On March 11, 2011, a huge wall of black water inundated a 400 kilometer stretch of Japan’s northeast coast. Nearly 500,000 people fled from the onrushing torrent. Out of the coastline’s more than 300 anti-tsunami barriers, roughly 200 utterly failed, a fact ignored by the Press and avoided by Japan’s government. More than 20,000 died. Over 300,000 residents lost everything – their homes and all belongings – swept away by the raging torrent. It must be stressed - while the world’s Press fixates on the Fukushima evacuees, the tsunami refugees have become Japan’s forgotten people. How did this happen?
