Case in point about history of protest. Link above to a short documentary about a Japanese fishing village that has for 30 years been protesting the building of a nuclear power plant that would destroy the Bay it depends on for its livelihood and culture. Having stopped the nuclear power plant twice the community was recently notified that local authorities have approved the power company’s permit to begin construction.
The documentary examines why and how they continue to resist. It was posted by editors at counterpunch.org.
