The most popular online anti-nuclear leader, Dana Durnford, was arrested this week for criminal harassment of two scientists. Charges laid against B.C. man who called for death of Fukushima researcher A British Columbia man who posted a video calling for the death of scientists whose research shows the Fukushima nuclear accident is not destroying the Pacific has been charged with two counts of criminal harassment. Full story It wasn't merely "a video calling for the death of scientists," it was over a year of rhetoric calling for violence and murder of scientists, journalists, academics and government employees. He relentlessly drummed into the heads of his lunatic following the idea that vigilante justice against anyone informing the public about facts of Fukushima (which he claims are lies) should at least be physically assaulted or at worst murdered. He tried to avoid directly asking "please go kill this person," but as these examples show, he clearly crossed an ethical and legal line. Released on bail, Durnford removed most of his videos and immediately posted a video claiming the arrest was an illegal attempt to suppress his Fukushima "research" and he solicited donations. His fans are now doing a full-court press to garner public support under the fraudulent pretext that the arrest was enforced by the nuclear industry to suppress "the truth." Having kept a casual eye on Durnford's doomsday cult for over a year, there's no way his fans could have missed his murderous rhetoric and threats. Instead, it's certainly that they believe it was justified. After all, Durnford has persuaded them Fukushima has killed 99% of the sealife in the Pacific Ocean, and we're next. While Helen Caldicott has 10k followers online (twitter), Durnford has 18k followers (youtube). I am not aware of an active anti-nuclear leader who is more popular than Durnford is today. This has to say something about the movement, that the people's choice among anti-nuclear folks is a bloodthirsty psychopath.
