Interview following NEIS’ “The End of the Nuclear Age: Where are the People?” event with Arnie Gundersen and Norma Field at DePaul University. Dr. Field speaks of her solidarity work with Japanese effected by the Fukushima disaster. When the government failed to prosecute anyone in its aftermath, one woman organized a peoples campaign to demand accountability. She speaks of that and the tradition of protest against government abuse and injustice and in opposition to nuclear power and militarism specifically. She refers to some largely unknown but shared experiences in American and Japanese society.

"Sea of Miracles"

Case in point about history of protest. Link above to a short documentary about a Japanese fishing village that has for 30 years been protesting the building of a nuclear power plant that would destroy the Bay it depends on for its livelihood and culture. Having stopped the nuclear power plant twice the community was recently notified that local authorities have approved the power company's permit to begin construction.
The documentary examines why and how they continue to resist. It was posted by editors at counterpunch.org.

Also of interest is the documentary, NUCLEAR JAPAN - Has nuclear power brought us happiness? "by Japanese lawyer Hiroyuki Kawai , available here:

Kawai's investigation discovered that TEPCO management rejected advice from its own safety consultants to raise the sea wall height one year before the earth quake occurred. He reveals why and what the aftermath of that decision has done
to thousands of families. Many injured survivors of the tsunami died in place because rescue crews were prohibited from entering the area for fear of radiation contamination.
