Japan has increased the maximum radiation exposure limit for children to 20 times the level set prior to the earthquakes of March 11th.

In an effort to allow children to continue school Japan has increased the maximum exposure limit to 20 millisieverts a year. The change has prompted protest in Tokyo with around 400 protestors outside the ministry of science and education demanding the change be reverted.

"This is enough. I’m really furious to see the government has no intention of protecting its people," said Ruiko Muto, 57, who had journeyed from Miharu town, about 45 kilometres from the crippled plant.
