Three years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster started, thousands of Japanese take to the street demanding an end to nuclear power. On this week’s show, we’ll go to Japan where the Fukushima plant continues to spew tons of radioactive water. Then we’ll head back to the Bay where the Center for Asian American media presents CAAMFest 2014. With 120 films and over 200 film makers and special guests in person, it is the largest Asian American film festival in North America. We’ll also speak with Aimee Suzara about her new book, Souvenir.
APEX Express is a weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Pacific Islanders from all corners of our community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, djs, and activists and airs each week on KPFA 94.1FM.
APEX Express is committed to building a broader social movement for justice and collective liberation for all oppressed people, including poor & working-class people, people of color, women and queer people. We support grassroots organizing and cultural work that advance these goals, and see APEX as a space for building consciousness and promoting critical discussion about these efforts.
