After Looking at Chabotts blog and following the links to No Future Tokyo & Support the Underground, you can get a lot better feel of what is going on, which is a bit more then we see here on the news. The biggest problem of course is getting relief to people in the heart of the area that need it most, which the goverment has not been able to yet.
Motoyan & Vibe Magazine & others have been buying food , supplies, Gas & filling up 5 or more vans & driving thru some not so good stuff to deliver buy hand supplies to people that need them. Then they come back, collect money from people & the paypal acct he has setup
( Motoyan's paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Then get more supplies & turn around & do it again.
There are relief pictures from them on the Support the Underground Blog & then in action.
There are a lot more pictures at the No Future Tokyo blog of general look of the land.
These are the same guys that a few days ago, may have been frowned upon by a lot of normal society for riding a bit to fast, being a bit to loud, & dressing a bit different. These are also the kind of people that will give unconditionally their money, time & life to help when it is really needed.
These guys are true life Heroes.
Thanks you, Jeff
