UPDATED Regarding That Radioactive Fukushima Skipjack Tuna Catch

Company selling cases for skipjack tuna back in business after tsunami
SENDAI -- When the March 11 tsunami struck the fishing port of Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture, Shuichiro Fujita, the president of a company selling cases for freshly caught skipjack tuna, lost his home and company facilities, leaving him helpless.
More than three months on, the 48-year-old has finally managed to get back to business.



The inset photo accompanying the above article has the proud businessman looking "at freshly caught skipjack tuna after the first landing at Kesennuma fishing port in Kesennuma, 
Miyagi Prefecture, on June 28."





The risk that this summer's skipjack is to some degree radioactive is quite real, and not only in my humble opinion.
As I understand it, the majority of the seasonal catch originates in areas questionable, and more than likely conaminated.  I say this despite the species having been cleared of contamination publicly by the authorities.  



I would want the fish reviewed by an independent and unbiases authority if I were to be absolutely certain.  

I trust I have not offended, and hope that the fortunes of Mr. Shuichiro Frujita, and of his devoted son, continue to improve.  I apologize for not making this clear at the outset.

この夏のカツオがある程度放射性になるというリスクが非常にリアル、とだけでなく、私の愚見ではあります。 私の理解では、季節の漁獲量の大半は疑わしい、と思わconaminated以上の領域に由来。私は種が当局によって公的に汚染をクリアしたにもかかわらずこれを言う。

Almost Gotcha:
Watergate, Bush Sr.,
& his CIA Confirmation Hearings:


Gary Hart also had a few questions. How did Bush feel about assassinations? Bush "found them morally offensive and I am pleased the President has made that position very, very clear to the Intelligence Committee..." How about "coups d'etat in various countries around the world," Hart wanted to know?
"You mean in the covert field," replied Bush. "Yes." "I would want to have full benefit of all the intelligence. I would want to have full benefit of how these matters were taking place but I cannot tell you, and I do not think I should, that there would never be any support for a coup d'etat; in other words, I cannot tell you I cannot conceive of a situation where I would not support such action." In retrospect, this was a moment of refreshing candor.
Gary Hart knew where at least one of Bush's bodies was buried:
Senator Hart: You raised the question of getting the CIA out of domestic areas totally. Let us hypthesize a situation where a President has stepped over the bounds. Let us say the FBI is investigating some people who are involved, and they go right to the White House. There is some possible CIA interest. The President calls you and says, I want you as Director of the CIA to call the Director of the FBI to tell him to call off this operation because it may jeopardize some CIA activities.
Mr. Bush: Well, generally speaking, and I think you are hypothecating a case without spelling it out in enough detail to know if there is any real legitimate foreign intelligence aspect... [...]
There it was: the smoking gun tape again, the notorious Bush-Lietdtke-Mosbacher-Pennzoil contribution to the CREEP again, the money that had been found in the pockets of Bernard Barker and the Plumbers after the Watergate break-in. But Hart did not mention it overtly, only in this oblique, Byzantine manner.
Hart went on: "I am hypothesizing a case that actually happened in June, 1972. There might have been some tangential CIA interest in something in Mexico. Funds were laundered and so forth."
Mr. Bush: Using a 50-50 hindsight on that case, I hope I would have said the CIA is not going to get involved in that if we are talking about the same one.

Senator Hart: We are.

Senator Leahy: Are there others?
Bush was on the edge of having his entire Watergate past come out in the wash, but the liberal Democrats were already far too devoted to the one-party state to grill Bush seriously. In a few seconds, responding to another question from Hart, Bush was off the hook, droning on about plausible deniability, of all things:"...and though I understand the need for plausible deniability, I think it is extremely difficult."

Public Intervention Can Prevent A Prisoner's Death or Further Injury


Spread the Word:



A source with access to the medical condition of the hunger strikers, who asked to remain anonymous told lawyers with the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition that health of the prisoners on hunger strike is quickly and severely deteriorating, saying, “All of the medical staff has been ordered to work overtime to follow and treat the hunger strikers. Some [strikers] are in renal failure and have been unable to make urine for three days.  Some are having measured blood sugars in the 30 range, which can be fatal if not treated. The staff has taken them to the [prison hospital] and given them intravenous glucose when allowed by the prisoners. A few have tried to sip water but are so sick that they are vomiting it back up.” 
















On July 1st, 2011,  prisoners in the Secure Housing Unit in Pelican Bay State Prison, Crescent City, CA went on indefinite hunger strike to protest conditions that have been  characterized by the United Nations as "inhumane and degrading". Throughout the week they have been joined by thousands of prisoners in at least a third of the state's prisons. The actions of these California prisoners are part of a long international history of resistance to the use of prisons as a solution to social problems, most recently the prison strikes in both Georgia and Youngstown, OH.
  

  
What are the prisoner demands? 
1. An End to Group Punishment and Administrative Abuse 
2. Abolish the Debriefing* Policy, 
     and Modify Active/Inactive Gang Status Criteria  
3. Comply with Commission on Safety and Abuse 
     in America's Prisons 2006 Recommendations Regarding     

     an 
End to Long-Term Solitary Confinement  

4. Provide Adequate Food   
5. Expand and Provide Constructive Programming 
     and Privileges for Indefinite SHU Status Inmates.  
  
From the call by prisoners in Pelican Bay 
for a hunger strike: 
“The purpose of the Hunger Strike is to combat both the Ad-Seg/SHU psychological and physical torture, as well 
as the justifications used of support treatment of the type that lends to prisoners being subjected to a civil death. 
Those subjected to indeterminate SHU programs are neglected and deprived of the basic human necessities 
while withering away in a very isolated and hostile environment.”  - Mutope Duguma  
  
What is the Security Housing Unit (SHU)? 
The Security Housing Unit (SHU) is a prison-within-a-prison. SHU prisoners are kept in windowless, 6 by 10 foot 
cells, 231⁄2 hours a day, for years at a time and conditions in American SHUs are routinely the target of 
international human rights campaigns. The California Department of Corrections operates four Security Housing 
Units in its system. Pelican Bay, Corcoran, California Correctional Institution, and Valley State Prison for 

Women .  
  
Who is Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity? 
When the prisoners at Pelican Bay decided to go on hunger strike, they built into their organizing a call for the 
creation of a committee outside the prison walls with specific asks around messaging, actions and other kinds of 
support.

demands and conditions inside the SHU as well as notices about upcoming events and action items. 

  
* The practice of “debriefing,” or offering up information about fellow prisoners particularly in regard to gang status, is often 
demanded in return for better food or even release from the SHU. Debriefing puts the safety of prisoners and their families 
at risk, because they are then viewed as “snitches.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE--July 12, 2011 
  
Medical Conditions Reach Crisis in Pelican Bay Hunger Strike 
 Advocates Demand Access to Strike Leaders, Negotiations

Office:  510 444 0484    
Cell:     510 517 6612

When: Wednesday, July 13; 11:00am

Oakland—According to advocates working on behalf of prisoners on hunger strike at Pelican Bay State 
Prison’s Security Housing Unit (SHU), medical conditions for many strikers have deteriorated to critical 
levels, with fears some prisoner could start to die if immediate action isn’t taken.  Prisoners at Pelican Bay 
have been on hunger strike for nearly two weeks and have been joined by thousands of other prisoners 
throughout California’s vast prison system.  Some of their main demands revolve around health conditions in 
Pelican bay’s Security Housing Unit, while the entire California prison system is under federal receivership 
due to grave health conditions throughout its facilities.   

A source with access to the medical condition of the hunger strikers, who asked to remain anonymous told lawyers with the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition that health of the prisoners on hunger strike is quickly and severely deteriorating, saying, “All of the medical staff has been ordered to work overtime to follow and treat the hunger strikers. Some [strikers] are in renal failure and have been unable to make urine for three days.  Some are having measured blood sugars in the 30 range, which can be fatal if not treated. The staff has taken them to the [prison hospital] and given them intravenous glucose when allowed by the prisoners. A few have tried to sip water but are so sick that they are vomiting it back up.”     

Prisoners participation in the strike in other prisons in California have also reported that medications, 
including those for high blood pressure and other serious conditions, are being withheld from prisoners on 
strike.  Some prisoners have participated for limited periods of time or have joined other prisoners in 
“rolling” strikes, due to their already poor medical conditions.   

“This situation is grave and urgent,” says Carol Strickman, staff attorney for Legal Services for Prisoners 
with Children and a legal representative of the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition. “We are fighting 
to prevent a lot of deaths at Pelican Bay. The CDCR [California Department of Corrections and 
Rehabilitation] needs to negotiate with these prisoners, and honor the request of the strike leaders to have 
access to outside mediators to ensure that any negotiations are in good faith.”   

The Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition is urging journalists to do further investigation into the health conditions at Pelican Bay, while also pushing state politicians to visit the prison itself.  The coalition is also encouraging members of the public to pressure Gov. Brown and the CDCR to negotiate with the prisoners. Taeva Shefler of the Prison Activist Resource Center, another member of the solidarity coalition says, “The question for the CDCR is: will they continue to jeopardize prisoners’ health and safety rather than sit at the same table and talk?”  

Hunger strike supporters will hold an emergency press conference Wednesday at 11:00 am outside the State 
Building in San Francisco. Supporters, including family members of those held at Pelican Bay, will also 
continue to hold rallies and other events in the coming weeks.
