About The Minamata Story An EcoTragedy Manga

The Minamata Story: An EcoTragedy features story by Sean Michael Wilson and illustrations by Akiko Shimojima.

The true story of how one Japanese village suffered and survived the mercury poisoning of its waters.

A powerful graphic novel/manga that tells the story of "Minamata disease," a debilitating and sometimes fatal condition caused by the Chisso chemical factory's careless release of methylmercury into the waters of the coastal community of Minamata in southern Japan. First identified in 1956, it became a hot topic in Japan in the 1970s and 80s, growing into an iconic struggle between people versus corporations and government agencies. This struggle is relevant today, not simply because many people are still living with the disease but also because, in this time of growing concern over the safety of our environment--viz. Flint, Michigan--Minamata gives us as a very moving example of such human-caused environmental disasters and what we can do about them.
