Synopsis: FUKUSHIMA 11 at INDIAN POINT. Tune in for a live report from Indian Point: commemoration of the anniversary of the start of the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster. Jeanne Shaw is our reporter on the scene. Fukushima affects us all now and for the foreseeable future. Fukushima is not over—radioactive water is being dumped into the ocean. The only people who have returned have gone home to care for animals left behind, and have little life there. Every tuna from the Pacific Ocean that has ever been tested has shown signs of radiation from Fukushima —and that means that other fish have been irradiated, as well. Rice grown near the Fukushima plant has been sent all over Japan to make sake for export. Japanese doctors are threatened with losing their license if they tell any patient that their health problems have come from the radiation from Fukushima Daiichi. Japanese mothers have had to buy their own radiation detectors to find out if their food is radioactive. Also, some of the remains of the waste from Fukushima have been used for household goods. Every single nuclear facility in the world is in everyone's back yard so there is Nowhere to Run.
