Noto Fusai

"A terrible nation that continues to release radiation...One of the reasons this happened is that we Japanese have been preoccupied with economic activity and entertainment, while being indifferent to politics and society. We cannot apologize enough to the people of the world for irretrievably polluting the air and sea, which are the irreplaceable wealth of Planet Earth. We must deeply reflect, make ourselves heard, and join together to repair this shattered society.
On the other hand we also have people who lost their homes and families on the 11th of March, who are on the brink of despair. I hope we can help them as companions all sharing the same planet. If you like any of the designs, please click on them and make use of them. Thank you."

 "放射能を流し続けるひどい国。私たち日本人が政治や社会のことに無頓着に、経済活動やエンターテインメントにばかり没頭してきたことの一つの結果がここにあります。地球のかけがえのない財産である空気や海を取り返しのつかない方法で汚してしまって、世界中の皆さんに、お詫びの言葉もありません。わたしたちは深く反省し、声を上げて、力をあわせて、堕落した社会を立て直さなければいけません。でもそのこととはまた別に、3月11日に突如として家や家族を失った人たちが、なす術もなく立ちすくみ絶望の縁に立たされています。同じ地球をシェアする仲間として、助けていただければありがたいです。気に入ったデザインのものがあれば、ポチッとして、そして大事に使ってやってください。ぜひ。"

 - 能登夫妻/Noto Fusai
