Death Threats For Selling Vegetables

Farmer Noboru Saito from Nihonmatsu in Fukushima has received threats for selling his food in Tokyo.

He has received emails which have read: “How long are you going to bring radiation into the Metropolitan area?” and “I will kill you.”

From The Mainichi, 2013-03-06

However, Mr. Saito’s products have been tested and no contamination was found, and no amount of contamination could justify death threats anyway. Other customers demanded price cuts just because of the origin. I have blogged about the damage done by unnecessary fear before, and it makes me sad and angry to see these kinds of things are still happening.
