A most amazing discovery. A list of some of the major players involved with the Farm of Hope, or maybe you will know it better as Mr. Yoshizawa’s farm. http://fukushima-farmsanctuary.blogzine.jp/blog/about.html
What makes this list so amazing is that Some of the Members were actually “quite shy” about revealing their involvement with this ranch. But, it is good to see that the owner is still around, Mr. Murata. And, the other familiar names?
Dr. Shigeki Imamoto, even though on the “official” page, he tries to hide himself by leaving off his last name. And, funny, why didn’t he let everyone know when he was telling everyone how he wanted to help the animals? But then, he did say:
Big special thanks to the Mayor of Minamisoma.
A very big favorite: Tsutomu Takamura, our very own “laughing stock of the world” politician.
And, the photo journalists on the board. 3 of them all on the Secretariats list. This actually means that the Farm of Hope has its own reporting staff to “help” with publicizing the Farm of Hope’s story and that would be Mr. Yoshizawa. It means that they focus on the important stuff and kind of leave out the “bad” stuff that people shouldn’t hear about, like involvement with politicians and radiation researchers. It all helps to make people just feel good when they donate to the cause. You know, ” let them think that the money will help “alleviate” suffering.
