Journalist, Media cooperative Unfiltered

As a journalist and union organizer, I have worked around social justice issues and building grassroots solidarity and movement, especially with women and workers. I also teach media at a university in Tokyo while running a media cooperative Unfiltered with international journalists. Currently, we are trying to develop a non-corporate media network with likeminded journalists and activists in Asia to report human rights and labor issues and to build stronger resistance to media oppression. The focus (and challenge) of my work is how to create a truly democratic decision-making process.
