#MauritiusOilDisaster 🇲🇺🇯🇵9/4 Japan’s @asahi & @kyodo_english reports the #MauritiusReefs remain ‘healthy’ despite the widespread #Wakashio oil spill. However, their reports contradict one another 💯 % in one critical aspect; the effects on the mangroves.Thread⤵️
Asahi reported this: "Eleven mangrove forests in the southeastern part of the island have been found to be CONTAMINATED by drifted oil. OIL-COATED SEAWEED REMAINS at the base of the mangroves." (via DeepL translation+edit. Emphasis added) digital.asahi.com/articles/ASN94…
Kyodo reported this: "NO ENTRY OF OIL has been confirmed in mangroves, and NO OIL COATING on their roots has been observed either (in the wetlands)," said Noriaki Sakaguchi, a deputy team leader and an ecosystem conservation expert" at JICA.

An activist organization with ties to Korea suddenly entered a public elementary school in Ginowan, Okinawa for political activism. It was a weekday & the children had classes. The organization didn't have an appointment with the school.
They came to the school without an appointment and asked to see the school's shelter. Unfortunately the school let them in & allowed the group to make political statements at the school.
It was the vice principal who led them around.
The school claimed they tried to shield the students from the activist group but there has been massive amounts of criticism by Japanese people towards the public school and the Korean activists.
