Radioactivism: Screening and Discussion on Responses to Japan’s Nuclear Crisis

Thursday, Nov. 15th, 6:15-8:00 PM

Bard College, Olin 102 [MAP]

Free & Open to public

The tsunami of March 11th 2011 not only devastated Northeastern Japan but instigated an ongoing nuclear crisis, in which the fear of radiation has penetrated the air, ground, food, and water of the entire country. Growing doubt towards the nuclear power industry and governmental regulatory structures has unleashed a new wave of citizen activism and popular protest on a scale unseen in Japan for decades. Yuko Tonohira and Ayumi Hirai of the group Todos Somos Japon will discuss recent developments in the anti-nuclear movement and screen a selection of short documentary films on responses to the crisis.

Todos Somos Japon is a network-building project aiming to connect and support activists in Japan and world-wide. TSJ publishes and translates critical writings in Japanese and English at http://jfissures.org and organizes events and film screenings in the New York area and beyond.

This event is co-sponsored by Asian Studies and Environmental and Urban Studies.
