Voice of the Last Chernobyl Cleanup Survivor

This is really short, folks – Natalia Manzurova, probably the last surviving member of the cleanup crew from Chernobyl has a very short, pithy, memorable message with regard to nuclear power and nuclear accidents:

“What message do you have for Japan?
Run away as quickly as possible. Don’t wait. Save yourself and don’t rely on the government because the government lies. They don’t want you to know the truth because the nuclear industry is so powerful.”

Cleanup Survivor’s Message

Take it from a woman, an engineer, who for some strange, crazy, genetically-advantaged reason, is still here to lend her voice to the hundreds of others who, like her, went into the hell of Chernobyl, and who, in a strange, crazy time-traveling way, speaks for the workers at the Japanese nuclear plant, and who speaks also for the rest of us.

“..the government lies…because the nuclear industry is so powerful.”
No shit, Natalia.
