Sabu Kohso ~

This week’s discussion will focus on the enigma of Nuclear technology, both as energy and weaponry. Why has such world-destroying technology disappeared from national consciousness? Why did President John F. Kennedy speak of the nuclear arms race as a “sword of Damocles” hanging over the human race, poised to destroy us at any moment? What does Western Nuclear hegemony mean for the rest of the world and their freedom dreams? And after Fukishima, why does Obama continue to advocate for Nuclear energy as a viable solution to the worldwide energy crisis? Joining us in the studio will be the eminent Sabu Kohso, a Japanese anti-nuclear activist, author, and prominent member of international civil society for establishing a global network of anti-authortaian movements in and out of Japan. Kohso is currently working on the blog Jfissures for the exchange of critical voices between the disaster stricken Japan and elsewhere.
