It’s the six-month anniversary of the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. There have been small remembrances. But, as with 9/11, the event hasn’t stopped. Somewhere down in the Fukushima nuclear plant, molten fuel rods are lodged like pieces of the sun. About a week ago, a man in a hazmat suit stood in front of the plant’s livecam, pointing. It was a scene out of a Japanese horror movie. Nobody knew who he was or why he was there. Now we know: he was a worker protesting conditions at the plant. And he’s explained himself in a letter. His English is rudimentary, but one line stood out to me: he says that sub-contractors, sub-sub-contractors, and sub-sub-sub-contractors (ad infinitum) are coming from “outlaw territory” to work for TEPCO, the utility company. And they’re exploiting workers at the nuclear plant with impunity. Complaints are muffled under the layers of sub-contractors, or ignored.
