Hasegawa Kenichi is a dairy farmer and leader of the Maeda District of Iitate Village, Fukushima Prefecture.
Iitate Village is 30-40km northwest of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Although it lies outside the no-entry zone around the plant, the 6,200 residents of this once idyllic farming village have been evacuated by the Japanese authorities due to extremely high radiation levels.
This is his testimony of the Fukushima nuclear accident, and message for the world.
