Media Cuts Emperor of Japan’s Speech

The Emperor of Japan’s speech gets cut down or censored. The offending lines look simple.

“As this earthquake and tsunami caused the nuclear power plant accident, those living in areas designated as the danger zone lost their homes and livelihoods and had to leave the places they used to live. In order for them to live there again safely, we have to overcome the problem of radioactive contamination, which is a formidable task.”

But the lines also point out that work needs to continue and the nuclear accident is still not complete as somewhat reported.
