The article by Oshikawa Jun is also based on the presentation delivered in ‘The Conference of Critical Journals in East Asia’, one of the commemorative events of Changbi‘s 50th anniversary. Oshikawa Jun argues that after the 2011 Fukushima earthquake, the public anger triggered by daily life issues, such as a shortage of daycare centers, lead up to people’s resistance to the government corruption and the undermining of democracy. What arrests our attention is the contention that even Japan’s postwar pacifist constitution could be defended by people’s everyday protests against corruption.
