A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by  Isao Hashimoto
Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project's "Trinity" test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan's nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea's two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear). Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing"the fear and folly of nuclear weapons." It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming. http://www.ctbto.org/specials/1945-1998-by-isao-hashimoto/ Multimedia artwork "2053" - This is the number of nuclear explosions conducted in various parts of the globe.* Profile of the artist: Isao HASHIMOTO Born in Kumamoto prefecture, Japan in 1959. Worked for 17 years in financial industry as a foreign exchange dealer. Studied at Department of Arts, Policy and Management of Musashino Art University, Tokyo. Currently working for Lalique Museum, Hakone, Japan as a curator. Created artwork series expressing, in the artist's view, "the fear and the folly of nuclear weapons": "1945-1998" © 2003 "Overkilled" "The Names of Experiments" About "1945-1998" ©2003 "This piece of work is a bird's eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world."

When Protesters Strike Back: Anti Narita airport protests
The Narita airport project was, at the time it was planned in the 60s, one of the biggest public-works projects ever attempted in Japan, but it ended up only a third as large as originally envisioned. That’s because the farmers whose land was seized for the airport resisted. The government chose the site, which is actually not in Narita proper but just outside the city in an area called Sanrizuka, after other municipalities closer to the city had rejected the proposed airport. Much of the land around Sanrizuka was controlled by the Imperial Household Agency, and the remaining plots were owned or maintained by farmers, many of them poor. The authorities didn’t see them as a problem, and the farmers resented their underhanded tactics and patronizing attitude. They refused to move. When police showed up to force the matter, the farmers’ recalcitrance inspired the radical left, including students. Like young people all over the world at the time, they objected to what they deemed to be imperialistic and capitalistic motives on the part of the older generation, and saw the Sanrizuka struggle as a means of striking back. The result was some of the most violent protests in the history of Japanese activism: six people dead and hundreds injured or arrested. The airport’s opening was delayed for years, its size and functionality (only one runway until 2002) seriously reduced, all because a handful of farmers wouldn’t budge.

Police Break Bad: 2001 G8 Genoa protests
The Genoa Group of Eight Summit protest, from July 18 to July 22, 2001, was a dramatic protest, drawing an estimated 200,000 demonstrators. Dozens were hospitalized following clashes with police and night raids by security forces on two schools housing activists and independent journalists. People taken into custody after the raids have alleged severe abuse at the hands of police. Many demonstrators were injured and dozens more arrested over the course of the event. Most of those 329 arrested were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit destruction; but they were in most part released shortly thereafter because judges declared the charges invalid. On July 20, a 23-year-old activist Carlo Giuliani of Genoa, was shot dead by Italian Police officer, Mario Placanica. According to the official ruling, Mario Placanica acted in self defense and was acquitted from any wrong doing.

Street Politics 101
In the spring of 2012, a massive student strike in opposition to a tuition hike, rocked the streets of the Montréal for over six months. Protests and militant street actions became part of the daily and nightly reality of this Canadian metropolis. Several times during this tumultuous spring, the numbers in the streets would reach over one hundred thousand. Police routinely clubbed students and their allies, and arrested them by the hundreds. Some were even banned from entering the city. But every time the cops struck, the student movement got bigger and angrier. This is a story about how the arrogance of a government, underestimated a dedicated group of students, who through long term organizing laid the foundation for some of the largest mass demonstrations in Canada's history. But it is also a story of how a crews of determined anarchists, educated a new generation of students, in the importance of owning the streets. In Street Politics 101, subMedia.tv features some of the best footage from what some called "the maple spring." It also features interviews with students, teachers and anarchists involved in one of the most militant rebellions in Quebec.

Police Break Bad: 2010 G20 Toronto protests
The 2010 G-20 Toronto summit protests began one week ahead of the summit of the leaders of the G-20 on 26-27 June in Toronto, Canada. The protests were for various causes, including poverty and anti-capitalism. Downtown Toronto was quickly transformed into a police state by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was determine to send his repressive message to the population of Canada. The message was received loud and clear by thousands of people. The essence of the message was that their rights were null and void to accommodate the world leaders of the G20 summit. Police from around the country stepped up to enforce the heavy hand of the state, tactics included the use of chemical weapons, violent kidnapping, physical assault, and inhumane detention. Nearly a year after police undertook the largest mass arrests in Canadian history at the G20 summit, the vast majority of the 1,105 people arrested on June 26 and 27 were released without charge or had their charges dropped. Brutality inflicted on the people by the Police at the G-20 Toronto summit, has been compiled to create the first installment in this series.

Police Break Bad: 2013 Turkish protests
The 2013 protests in Turkey started on the 28th of May 2013, initially to contest the urban development plan for Istanbul's Taksim Gezi Park. The protests were sparked by outrage at what they perceived as a brutal eviction of a sit-in at the park protesting the plan. Subsequently, supporting protests and strikes took place across Turkey, protesting a wide range of concerns. As protests continued across Turkey, police use of tear gas and water cannons led to injuries running into thousands, including critical injuries, loss of sight, and a number of deaths. Over three thousand arrests were made. Police forces repeatedly used unnecessary and abusive force to prevent and disperse peaceful demonstrations. As a result, it is estimated that there were 11 fatalities and least at least 8,163 injuries. Music: Session by Linkin Park http://aconcernedhuman.wixsite.com/aconcernedhuman

When Protesters Strike Back: 2016 French labor reform protests
The 2016 French labor reform protests are against the proposed labor reforms known as the El Khomri law or Loi travail, these reforms would revise France's Labor Code with the aim of making the country's labor market more flexible. Among the changes set out in the legislation, the new labor code would make it easier for companies to lay off workers, would reduce overtime payments for hours worked beyond France's statutory 35-hour workweek, and would reduce severance payments that workers are entitled to if their company has made them redundant. The draft legislation was met with public opposition, leading to strikes and demonstrations organized by trades unions and student groups. A broader protest movement, Nuit debout, arose within the context of opposition to the legislation, with the aim of "overthrowing the El Khomri bill and the world it represents".

Police Break Bad: 2011 Occupy protests
The Occupy movement is an international protest movement against social and economic inequality, its primary goal being to make the economic and political relations in all societies less vertically hierarchical and more flatly distributed. Local groups often have different foci, but among the movement's prime concerns deal with how large corporations and the global financial system control the world in a way that disproportionately benefits a minority, undermines democracy and is unstable. The first Occupy protest to receive widespread attention was Occupy Wall Street in New York City's Zuccotti Park, which began on 17 September 2011. By 9 October. Although most active in the United States, by October 2012 there had been Occupy protests and occupations in dozens of other countries across every continent except Antarctica. For its first two months, authorities largely adopted a tolerant approach toward the movement, but this began to change in mid-November 2011 when they began forcibly removing protest camps. By the end of 2011 authorities had cleared most of the major camps, with the last remaining high profile sites – in Washington DC and London – evicted by February 2012.

Police Break Bad: 1993 Waco siege
The Waco siege was a siege of a compound belonging to the religious group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and military between February 28 and April 19, 1993. The group was suspected of weapons violations and a search and arrest warrant was obtained by the ATF. The incident began when the ATF attempted to raid the ranch. An intense gun battle erupted, resulting in the deaths of four agents and six Branch Davidians. Upon the ATF's failure to raid the compound, a siege was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the standoff lasting 51 days. Eventually, the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out. During the attack, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel Center and 76 people.
