Team of pensioners ready to save Japan from radiation

A group of 200 old people in Japan, organized by 72-year old Yasuteru Yamada, are volunteering to work at the Fukushima power plant

Volunteering to take the place of younger workers at the power station is not brave, Mr Yamada says, but logical

“We are not kamikaze. The kamikaze were something strange, no risk management there.”

Japanese pensioners are volunteering to tackle the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima power station. The Skilled Veterans Corps, as they call themselves, is made up of retired engineers and other professionals, all over the age of 60. They say they should be facing the dangers of radiation, not the young.
