Povzetek

Po gibanjih »Occupy« (Okupirajmo Wall Street) v New Yorku in še pred protivladnimi protesti v Hong Kongu (2014) je dvesto tisoč ljudi obkrožilo urad predsednika vlade v Tokiu, da bi izrazili svoj protest proti jedrski energiji. Profesor Oguma analizira značaj in družbeno ozadje tega gibanja in se osredotoča na skupne poteze teh gibanj kot modernega fenomena v globaliziranem svetu.

Abstract

After "Occupy Wall Street" in New York, and before the "Umbrella Revolution" in Hong Kong, 200 thousand people surrounded the Prime Minister's office in Tokyo for an anti-nuclear demonstration. Professor Oguma analyses the character and social background of this movement and focuses on their common features as a contemporary phenomenon in the globalized world.
