Women of Japan, Fukushima Activists — A Poem by Maureen Hartmann

Women of Japan, Fukushima Activists

They feel power as mothers,
protesting radioactivity
that is affecting their reproductivity
by abnormal births.

They’ve had their fill of United States’
stretching of tentacles
through Japanese nuclear energy industry.

As mothers they push
to stop dangerous dumping
of uranium waste in children’s playgrounds.
