Thank You for Joining Us for Remembering Fukushima 10 Years Later: A Film Screening & Panel Discussion


Thanks so much for joining us for Remembering Fukushima 10 Years Later: A Film Screening & Panel Discussion. In case you missed any of the panel discussion webinar, or to watch it again, you can view video of the panel discussion here.

We were honored to have the filmmaker, Hitomi Kamanaka, along with panel members Norma Field, Ruiko Muto, and Leona Morgan, discuss the film and the disastrous impacts on communities from radioactive contamination released from the explosions at the Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima on March 11th, 2011. Our distinguished panelists also shared their thoughts on nuclear technologies, from uranium mining at the beginning of the nuclear cycle to the precarious and dangerous burial of nuclear wastes.

As you would have heard during our panel discussion, Hitomi Kamanaka is an award-winning documentarian who has produced films exploring the impacts of nuclear technologies for over two decades. Norma Field is the editor and co-translator of Fukushima Radiation: Will You Still Say No Crime Has Been Committed? Ruiko Muto led the Complainants for Criminal Prosecution of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster that ultimately resulted in a prosecution review commission determining that three former TEPCO executives were appropriate subjects of indictment. Leona Morgan is an Indigenous community organizer and activist who has been fighting nuclear colonialism since 2007, including working to stop new uranium mining, transport of radioactive materials, and nuclear waste dumping in New Mexico. This film screening and panel discussion are part of the Cascadia Arts Film Festival, organized by Oregon PSR Advisory Board Member Yukiyo Kawano and CORE (Consequences of Radiation Exposure) member Laura Feldman.

Our sincere thanks to our distinguished panelists and the event organizers! If you have any questions or comments for our panelists or organizers, please let us know and we will follow up with you soon.

Oregon PSR Petition to Oregon's Federal Delegates on NuScale/Nuclear Power

This petition urges Oregon’s federal delegates to reject federal tax incentives or subsidies for nuclear power, including so-called “advanced” reactor designs, in the interest of preserving investments in proven renewable technologies and making the best use of federal spending. You need not live in Oregon to sign the petition, as every voice counts. We also encourage you to copy and adapt the petition language in reaching out to your own local elected leaders and/or media outlets.

Please do not throw the water generated by the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster into the sea 

This petition calls upon the Japanese government to demand that contaminated water being stored at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station NOT be discharged into the sea, and instead be stored on land and solidified.

Thanks again for joining us to remember Fukushima and learn more about the dangers of nuclear power. We hope that you found the film and the panel discussion engaging and informative, and that you will join us in advocating for a more healthy and more just nuclear-free future.

この度は、ご予約チケットをご購入いただきありがとうございました。ウェブセミナーをお見逃しになった方は、こちらのアーカイブ から見ていただけます。

福島原発事故から10年経った3月11日に、私たちは アメリカ、日本の両国で起こっていることをもっと知るためにゲストを迎えて、福島とアメリカ先住民が住んでいる原子力被災地との関連性について一緒に話し合いました。

パネリストとして参加いただきました鎌仲ひとみ監督は、20年以上にわたり、核の最前線を果敢に撮影した映画を制作し、多数の受賞歴のあるドキュメンタリー作家さんです。シカゴ大学名誉教授 ノーマ・フィールドさんは「Fukushima Radiation:犯罪はまだ発生していないと言えるか? 」 の編集者、及び共同翻訳者であられます。武藤類子さんは,福島原発事故の刑事訴追の原告を率い原告団長で、この取り組みによって最終的に、検察審査委員会が責任者である東京電力の幹部3人を法廷に引きずり出すことに成功されました。レオナ・モーガンさんは原子力と闘ってきた先住民、ナバホ族のご出身で、2007年以降の原子力植民地主義(新たなウラン採掘の停止を含)、ニューメキシコ州での放射性物質と核廃棄物の投棄などの問題に取り組んで来られました。この度の、映画『小さき声のカノン』のアメリカでの期間限定オンライン配信と本日のウェブセミナーはカスケディア・アーツ映画祭の一旦としてOregon PSR(社会的責任を果たす医師団・オレゴン支部)諮問委員会メンバー川野ゆきよと、CORE(放射線被曝がもたらすもの)メンバーのローラ・フェルドマンが企画、運営をしてみなさまにお届けいたしました。
