Speaking about people’s movement: Jfissures & Radioactivists in New York

Veröffentlicht am 26. März 2012 von clarissaliv in Discourse

First of all, the breaking news of today:

Another reactor in Japan was shut down, leaving just one reactor -out of the 54- running. As stated in this article, the official reasons are maintenance and stress tests, but also local governments and electric companies are facing a big public opposition.

There was one panel at the Left Forum in New York City that broached the issue of this public opposition called ‚People’s Movement In the Post Fukushima Nuclear Power Catastrophe‚. Panelists were Keisuke Jinno, Yuko Tonohira as well as Sabu Kohso – the latter two are founders of jfissures.org, a bilingual blog/webpage where we found a lot of information for the preparations of RADIOACTIVISTS and also some of our interview partners (Yoshitaka Mori, Yoshihiko Ikegami, Chigaya Kinoshita. We were also invited as panelists but since we couldn’t come to New York we ended up sending a video message where we summarize our experiences with RADIOACTIVISTS.
