The People of Asia Say No to Nuclear Power

Ryan Holmberg (Translator) Ann Elise Lewallen (Translator)

Nuclear energy has long been promoted as a solution to Asia's growing energy demands with little attention to its often debilitating impact on host communities. Composed by the grassroots organization No Nukes Asia Forum, this book provides a critical introduction to the debates surrounding nuclear energy proliferation across Asia by tracing 25 years of transnational organizing in the area. A protagonist in the field, No Nukes Asia Forum has aimed to cultivate transnational partnerships between communities who collectively face displacement from nuclear development schemes since the dawn of the Nuclear Age through the present. Through these efforts, NNAF has sought to halt the export of nuclear reactors from Japan, South Korea, Russia, France, the United States, and Canada, beginning with struggles in Taiwan and Indonesia in the 80s and 90s and now in Vietnam, India, and Turkey. The authors narrate how, in recent years, activists across Asia have engaged in democratic action through national referendums, education, art, and mass demonstrations to shape policy and enact self-determination around environment, energy, and political engagement in the region. The first citizen's history of anti-nuclear movements in Asia, this book is a must-read for activists, lobbyists, government departments, students, scholars, and everyone concerned about the future of our planet.
