A 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck off the Northeast Coast of Japan creating a small tsunami that hit Japan’s eastern coast – where the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is located. The government insists there was no damage, According to reports, the tsunami reached waves of only 30cm (1ft) in the region.
Nonetheless, Japanese Prime Minister’s government is planning to introduce a state secrecy act that can limit public access to information on a wide range of issues from military to earthquake damage like that at Fukushima nuclear crisis. Like we are seeing from Finestein in the USA and in Europe seeking to prevent even free movement of people classified as “trouble-makers”, Japan’s new law would substantially expand the definition of official secrets and journalists convicted under it could be jailed for up to five years. The US imprisoned the NY Times Journalist Judith Miller on contempt of court for refusing to give up her sources.
The more the economy declines and the various governments refuse to revise the world monetary system because it will result in a loss of THEIR power, the more we will see these types of measures to silence anyone who speaks the truth. Freedom of Speech is honestly a barbaric relic of the past according to the new governments that have emerged around the world.
