March 2017 marks six years since the Fukushima nuclear disaster. In spite of the Japanese government's claims of a ‘recovery’ in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, the disaster is still ongoing. Attempts to gain control of the nuclear power plant have not been successful and radioactive water continues to leak from the site with no apparent means to stop it. Almost 100,000 people are still displaced. The affected residents have been suffering from a mismanaged decontamination process, with serious risks to their health and the environment.
