Wanted! Remix to be played at Kazaguruma Demo on 07. March 2015

Send us your cool remix to be played at the public demonstration in Berlin!

Sayonara Nukes Berlin is planning its third anti-nuclear public rally “Kazaguruma Demo” on March 7, 2015. Our motto will be: “Vegesst FUKUSHIMA nicht! (Remember FUKUSHIMA)”. We will march through the city center of Berlin to remember the lesson learned through the Fukushima disaster and call for a nuclear-free future.  To show our respect to the culture that the people in the Fukushima region embrace, we will dance one of their traditional folk dances “Kansho-Odori” in our parade.

The music that is used for the “Kansho-Odori” dance is a popular folk song from Fukushima called “Aizu-Bandaisan”.

Berlin has a leading club culture and the city is the birthplace of the “Love Parade” as well.   We would love to see this seemingly-old-fashioned folk music like “Aizu-Bandaisan” remixed and revived into a cool techno dance music and presented in the city.

Here you can listen “Aizu bandaisan Sayonara Nukes Berlin version”.

Join our Anti-Atom Kazaguruma Demo!

8th March, 2014
13:00 ~
Brandenburger Tor (Platz des 18.März am Brandenbruger Tor)

Map3Programm2

3 Years have almost passed since the first day of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan. Is the Japanese government really doing its best to solve this global problem? And are the energy policies around the world really going the right direction?

We, as human beings, have the right to live without the fear of the dangers of nuclear power. Join us in this global rally for cleaner energy. The theme this time would be kazaguruma (little hand made wind mills), now a symbol for energy transition.

-After performances and speeches at Brandenburger tor gate, we will march to the Japanese embassy

-Performances will include a Satirical Comedy dance theater group organized by Bodypoet (Kazuma Glen Motomura) and GreenPeace Solar Drums etc.

-Come as you are, but with your own little kazaguruma (windmill), or signs would be great.

How to make one; http://sayonara-nukes-berlin.org/?p=507&lang=de

We, Sayonara Nukes Berlin, along with Anti-Atom Berlin, Arbeitsgemeinschaft Schacht KONRAD e.V., NatureFreunde Berlin e.V. will conduct an anti-nuclear demo in solidarity with the Sayonara Nukes movement originating from Fukushima, Japan.
We will submit an open letter to the Japanese government urging discontinuation of nuclear energy, evacuation support for people of contaminated areas (it is voluntary and not supported by the government), and better action against urgent matters.
