by Labor Video Project
Friday Oct 18th, 2013 12:36 PM
Osaka Hannan University professor Masaki Shimoji who is also president of the Hannan University Teachers Union reported in Berkeley on October 17, 2013 the work of anti-nuclear activists who were opposing the burning of nuclear rubble from Fukushima and his arrest and jailing by the Japanese government and police for his efforts to educate the people of Osaka.

Fukushima, Nuclear Power and Repression With Osaka Professor Masaki Shimoji
Osaka Professor Masaki Shimoji who is the president of the Hannan University Teachers Union discusses the fight against the burning of nuclear rubble from Fukushima ordered by the Japanese government and the jailing of him and others for providing educational material about the growing dangers of radiation and contamination from the meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear reactors.
Professor Shimoji was jailed for 20 days in Osaka along with other anti-nuclear activists and he discusses the continuing repression by the Japanese government in order to prevent the Japanese people from learning about the continuing dangers from the Fukushima nuclear power plant catastrophe.
Professor Shimoji spoke in Berkeley, California on October 17, 2013 and the interpretation was by Umi Hagitani of No Nukes Action.
The criminal charges against Shimoji have been dropped but the repression continues.
