Thousands of residents of the small farming village of Iitate in northern Japan were forced to leave their homes after radiation levels peaked dangerously high in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster of 2011.

But now a special project is helping them keep an eye on their ‘ghost town’, by allowing them to monitor its surveillance camera feeds.

Video on link.. (Note that this is the main article on fukushima during a weekend of remembrance and protests in the uk and indeeed globally. This is one of the strangest story lines ive come across.. watch the video and see whatyou make of it.. they have given out free electronic tablets so people can look at their irradiated houses.. huh? seems like a waste of money and not good psychological practise to allow victims this type of voyeurism after trauma? At least, i am sure it would stimulate some discussion amongst psychologists.. Arclight2011)
