Film Screening: “How Nuclear Energy Got to Japan: The ‘Red Scare’ and Tactics of State Control”/ 原発導入のシナリオ ~冷戦下の対日原子力戦略~

There will be another screening of “How Nuclear Energy Got to Japan: The ‘Red Scare’ and Tactics of State Control”!!

October 18th 7pm
947 61st st, apt 20 (in North Oakland)
near Ashby Bart (about 18 minutes walking and five minutes biking)

This is a well-known NHK documentary among anti-nukes community in Japanthat focuses on how the united states was able to shift the tide of anti-nuclear sentiment and introduce the “peaceful” of nuclear energy. A lot of this was also done through using the idea of the “red scare,” and anti-communist sentiments. Laura Megumi subtitled the film, and we had a premier screening in Oakland August 25th teach-in with Mari Matsumoto.
This event is also a benefit for Umi Hagitani who is an anti-nukes activist who has been active in California since March 11th’s Fukushima nuclear accident. She has starting building a network of anti-nuke activists and organizers on the west coast and begun building international grassroots collaboration around these issues.
