IFRC: nuclear disaster in Japan not ended yet

Japan's Ashahi Shimbun has quoted a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Cresent Societies '('IFRC')' as stating that the Fukushima disaster has not ended. 'The spokesman Matthias Schmale added that here is a need for the Japanese authorities to be more transparent 'in the dissemination of information on the subject. Meanwhile, the social discipline of the many ordinary people in Japan in stoically coping with the almost simultaneous disasters of tsunami, earthquake and nuclear crisis is still fairly inspiring and praiseworthy, although that has not stopped the rise of 'an anti'-'nuclear movement and 'a surge of more critical ideas on corporates' social responsibility.
