Shifts in Feminisms in Japan’s Anti-Nukes Movement, a Discussion with Mari Matsumoto & Film Screening of “How the Nukes Got to Japan”

(Mari Matsumoto, with two interpreters from No Nukes Action)

Saturday, August 25th 2012 (6PM-9PM)

$5 (no one will be turned away for the lack of funding)

Why Japan ended up with 54 nuclear power plants after they experienced Hirshima/ Nagasaki? What has been going on in feminists movements in Japan. What has been passed on from Hiroshima/Nagasaki era, to the Chernobyl era, to the present Fukushima era in terms of day-to-day resistance? We invite you to a discussion with Mari Matsumoto, a feminist writer from Tokyo who does advocacy work with people’s radiation monitoring projects, evacuees safer spaces, and with the Fukushima Plaintiffs against Tepco and all who are responsible for the ongoing Fukushima nuclear accident. What does it mean to experience radioactive-military-industrial-complex? in Tokyo right now? How do we see Fukushima or California nuclear power plants in South from the Bay Area while the Bay Area corporations and institutions endorses radioactive-military-industrial-complex? Why does anti-nukes movement look so uncool? What activists and the people in Japan doing before and after March 11th? What do queers do? How people migrate and become diasporic? We will engage in a conversation to raise these questions and play soccer around them to find some commonalities between different sides of the Pacific.
We’re also screening a documentary to introduce how the US introduced nuclear power to Japan after a-bombs in Hiroshima/Nagasaki during the Cold War era.

なぜヒロシマとナガサキを経た日本に、54もの原子炉が建ってしまったのでしょうか?ヒロシマ/ナガサキ時代、そしてチェルノブイリを経て、現在のフクシマを経験している日本のフェミニスト運動において、何が手わたされ、日々のどのような抵抗が起きているのでしょうか?また、東京で経験する放射能産業複合体の現在とは一体なんなのでしょう?ベイエリアの原発企業やアカデミアの裾野にいる私たちが、フクシマや南カリフォルニアの原発を見るときと何か共通点はあるのでしょうか?日本のフェミニスト文筆家であり、計測運動や、避難者による場づくり、原発事故の刑事責任を追求するふくしま原発告訴団などのアドボカシー運動に関わっている松本麻里さんのお話をうかがいます。
