Greenpeace International has actively documented the unfolding Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster since the accident occurred in March 2011. Greenpeace has released an important report on the occasion of the 10th year anniversary of an ongoing accident that is far from ‘resolved’.

Workers at a school ground in Namie Town, Fukushima prefecture, Japan. In March 2017 the Japanese government opened this area of Namie for people to return. Greenpeace radiation surveys in October 2018, showed high levels of contamination in the forests surrounding this school. Over 70,000 workers have been employed in recent years in Fuksuhima. United Nations Special Rapporteurs on human rights warned in 2018 of the urgent situation for workers, including homeless, who were reportedly being exploited by hundreds of sub contractors. This area of Iitate was opened by the government in March 2017, but still radiation levels remain high in areas of Iitate and above government decontamination targets.
