#CANRallyDC : Rally For A Nuclear Free Future
The demonstrations against nuclear power that CAN is organizing in September are powerful and imperative. I want every person – mothers, fathers, children, grandmothers and grandfathers, to make a major effort to attend one or all of these gatherings as the time for the “peaceful” atom is over. We must end it now before it ends us. – Helen Caldicott, MD - Solidarity Statements | Coalition Against Nukes
from Iori-san's page "DC rally on 9/20 | Fukushima Diary:"I also had a speech in Capitol Reflecting Pool (3rd St & Jefferson Drive SW Washington DC 20004).
I thought that would not be so meaningful for me to talk about hypocrisy of nuclear industry or murderous policy of Japanese government to the audience because our audience already know such things and they can read more details on the internet. (but that’s necessary.)This is also a discrepancy unique for this kind of the protest.This speech therefore was for passersby on the street, beside the pool, and tourists walking around.
I emphasized the fault of media and America to appeal for larger range of people.
Nuclear, war, dysfunction of the governing system, they all share the same root. War has an aspect as a public public investment for inventory readjustment of surplus in industrial products and people. Nuclear is also a part of them. You can’t resolve only a part of this entire system. The system needs a whole renovation.
My major was economics. I was a believer of free economy.
However, I’m starting to learn capitalism and democracy are merely impractical propositions like nuclear power.
You can change politician, but can not change bureaucracy. They are the one to absorb our tax and decide where to drop it. This is where all the power / information is concentrated. and they have no feedback from their bad operating. but you can’t attack them like you can’t punch air. I find it the crucial system error of our modern society.
I don’t know what can be alternative, but I’m starting to think again, we can’t design our society.
We live in the society, but don’t even know how it is working. so I’m doing what I can do. I focused on what I can accuse in this speech.
This is the draft of my speech... (more)
