Finding Her Voice

Ruiko Muto speaking at the women’s anti-nuclear rally outside METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) in Tokyo on Friday June 29th.

Quite an amazing woman one of the many that have been thrust, often unwillingly, into the limelight as they find their voices in the fight against nuclear energy.

Interviewed a few such people and will be interviewing more, each has a  different story to tell on how they arrived at a vocal and visible position that it must still be hard to justify to their more reticent friends. These are all strong, principled people that buck the racial stereotype and could just be the cause of a much needed change in the way the powers that control Japan deal with the population.
