White House hails Arab League no-fly zone request 12 Mar 2011 The White House says the Arab League has taken an "important step" by asking the U.N. Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and increasing international pressure on Moammar Gadhafi. President Barack Obama has repeatedly called for Gadhafi to step down. But the U.S. has not been willing to impose a no-fly zone unilaterally. The White House says the U.S. will prepare for all contingencies and coordinate with allies.

Japan to distribute iodine among people

Japan to distribute iodine among people 12 Mar 2011 Japan has informed the UN nuclear body that following an explosion in a nuclear power plant, it plans to distribute anti-radioactive medicine to the people in the area. Earlier on Saturday, an explosion occurred in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, blowing the roof off one facility and destroying its walls. The explosion led to the increase of radiation leak and has caused fears of a meltdown as the radioactivity in the area is now 20 times higher than normal levels.

Japan evacuates 50,000 after nuclear power plant explosion --NHK: At least three residents among 90 tested showed excess exposure to radiation 12 Mar 2011 More than 50,000 people were evacuated Saturday after an explosion at a Japanese nuclear plant hurled plumes of smoke over the Pacific Ocean... Japanese authorities hastened to assure the public there was no danger of a meltdown at the the Fukushima Daiichi plant along the lines of the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine, but they were unable to explain why excess levels of radiation were detected outside the plant's grounds. Japan's NHK television reported that at least three residents among 90 tested at random showed excess exposure to radiation.

No to unions' capitulation to Walker! For a general strike by all Wisconsin workers!

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

No to unions' capitulation to Walker! For a general strike by all Wisconsin workers! (WSWS) 12 March 2011 The bill signed into law by Governor Scott Walker Friday is a historic assault on the working class. It is aimed at criminalizing any organized resistance to the destruction of jobs, wages, education and other social services. It marks a major step toward an open dictatorship of the corporations... Even were the recall campaign to succeed in replacing every targeted Republican with a Democrat, the cuts in wages, health care and education would remain... Workers cannot live with these attacks. The capitulation of the unions must be rejected and preparations made now to unite the full strength of the working class in a general strike.

Japan Reactor Fuel Rods May Have Begun to Melt, Atomic Safety Agency Says 12 Mar 2011 A nuclear reactor in the Fukushima Dai-Ichi power station about 220 kilometers (140 miles) north of Tokyo may be starting to melt down after Japan’s biggest earthquake on record hit the area yesterday. Fuel rods at the No. 1 reactor at the plant run by Tokyo Electric Power Co. may be melting after radioactive Cesium material left by atomic fission was detected near the site, Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, spokesman Yuji Kakizaki said by phone today. "If the fuel rods are melting and this continues, a reactor meltdown is possible," Kakizaki said. A meltdown refers to a heat buildup in the core of such an intensity it melts the floor of the reactor containment housing.

MSNBC: Wall-to-wall coverage of Charlie Sheen's meltdown, silent on nuclear meltdown --GE: 'We Bring Good Censorship To Life.' By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 12 Mar 2011 Earlier this week, MSNBC spent *hours* covering Lindsay Lohan's court appearance -- including, of course, her courtroom attire -- for an allegedly stolen necklace. But MSNBC has, to this point, censored entirely the nuclear catastrophe in Japan. Hours upon hours of air-time were devoted to Charlie Sheen's 'meltdown,' but MSNBC chose to air its 'Lockup' series on Friday evening/Saturday morning, sans interruption. MSNBC failed to even cut in with a news alert of the explosion -- and possible meltdown -- of Japan's quake-hit Fukushima No.1 nuclear Plant.

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

Six-mile exclusion zone placed around crippled nuclear reactor as radiation hits 1,000 times safe level --2,800 residents already evacuated within two-mile radius of the plant --Pressure rises to 2.1 times normal level --Experts warn the situation 'could turn grave' 12 Mar 2011 Japanese officials warned of two possible radiation leaks today as authorities battled to contain rising pressure at a plant crippled by yesterday massive earthquake. Thousands of people within a six-mile radius of the Fukushima facility were evacuated as radiation rose to 1,000 times the safe level and pressure grew, fueling fears of an explosion. With growing tension at the plant 150 miles north of Tokyo, a second state of emergency was declared as pressure rose in two reactors at the facility. Earlier officials had proposed releasing radioactive vapour into the atmosphere in a bid to prevent an explosion after its cooling system failed.

Japan may have hours to prevent nuclear meltdown

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

Japan may have hours to prevent nuclear meltdown --Officials are considering releasing radiation to relieve pressure in the containment at the Daiichi plant and are also considering releasing pressure at Daini, signs that difficulties are mounting. Such a release has only occurred once in U.S. history, at Three Mile Island. 11 Mar 2011 Japanese officials may only have hours to cool reactors that have been disabled by Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami or face a nuclear meltdown. Tokyo Electric Power Co is racing to cool down the reactor core after a highly unusual "station blackout" -- the total loss of power necessary to keep water circulating through the plant to prevent overheating.

Thousands ordered to evacuate as nuclear emergency is declared

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

Thousands ordered to evacuate as nuclear emergency is declared 11 Mar 2011 Japan declared a nuclear emergency after Friday’s earthquake compromised the cooling systems of at least two of its nuclear plants, forcing the evacuation of people living near both of them. Officials warned that small amounts of radioactive material were likely to leak from the plants, known as Daiichi and Daini and operated by Tokyo Electric Power. The evacuation zone for the Daiichi plant was tripled to 10 kilometres after authorities detected eight times the normal radiation levels outside the facility. Inside the plant’s control room, levels were a thousand times higher than normal.
