"Mobilizing, participating, sympathizing - Social movements in post-3.11 Japan"
Abstract: Japan experienced the East Japan Great Earthquake on March 11, 2011, the triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. These events quickly triggered anti-nuclear protests, with mobilization peaking in July 2012. The subsequent National Security Act legislation caused the second peak in mobilization numbers in 2015. In total, these post-3.11 protests mark the largest protest wave Japan had seen since the 1970s. We use a unique dataset entitled â€œCitizensâ€™ political participationâ€, derived from a December 2017 survey among 77,084 Japanese living in the greater Tokyo metropolitan area. We present first findings about (a) who the people are that joined the movements and attended demonstrations, who are sympathizers, who are opponents; (b) creating a typology on the stages of involvement in either of the two protest issues; (c) analyzing attitudes toward policies on nuclear power, as well as political view and personal values and their relevance to the likelihood of participating and/or sympathizing.
