Women of Japan, Fukushima Activists — A Poem by Maureen Hartmann
Women of Japan, Fukushima Activists
They feel power as mothers,
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.
