This is a well-known NHK documentary among anti-nukes community in Japan
that 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.
