The Energy of the Stars This issue of Leonorana brings together several voices that speak on the ‘nuclear’ subject across different times and geographies. José Carlos Marques gives a first-person account of the influence of French environmental activist, publisher and caricaturist Pierre Fournier in raising environmental awareness in Portugal as he tells us how the nuclear issue was dealt with in independent publishing projects. Looking into the same period, Alberto Camacho brings us his most recent research on a film made during the Festival pela Vida em Ferrel, a work whose authorship and current location are unknown. Also, on the subject of Portugal, Isabel Carvalho examines the scars of intense uranium extraction on the consciousness of the people of Urgeiriça in a fictional piece where children become hostage of the negligence and abuses of the past. Vanessa Badagliacca brings together a series of encounters on the nuclear issue, particularly on the need to reinforce the Iberian anti-nuclear alliance. In the international context, Verónica Perales traces the trajectory of ecofeminist movements, their actions and artistic productions, demonstrating how ransoming memory helps us understand its influence on the way we live and aesthetically and ethically appreciate the world. Maud Jacquin’s essay deals with the vulnerability of the human body and the body of Earth in the intersection with technology and the policies that override them in the films by experimental queer feminist filmmaker Sandra Lahire. Intersecting times that are not very distant, Alice Miceli contributes an essay made of photographic records of the place that saw one of the most dramatic events of our epoch – the nuclear Chernobyl nuclear power station in the Ukraine.Michael Marder also returns to Chernobyl to problematize issues such as energy and radioactivity in the context of the site’s current occupation by Russian troops since the beginning of the conflict on 24 February 2022. Anaïs Tondeur, who, together with Marder, authored one of the most remarkable works on the nuclear topic – The Chernobyl Herbarium (2016) – produced an essay in resistance in collaboration with anthropologist Marine Legrand, who joins the fight against land expropriation and preparatory works by the National Agency for the Management of Nuclear Waste (ANDRA) to build nuclear waste storage facilities in the geological depths of Bure, between Haute-Marne and Meuse, in France. João Paulo Guimarães wrote a series of poems following experimental re-writing, mutation and atomization methods based on a text by Carolina Cuevas on the environmental impact of gold-mining and nuclear energy production in Laguna Verde, in the Mexican state of Veracruz, which, in turn, was driven by Michael Marder’sand Anaïs Tondeur’s said project for The Chernobyl Herbarium. Joana Rafael analyses how the environment continues to interact with nuclear development, not only as the ‘subject/victim’ of collateral (and intentional) damages, but also as an ‘aggressor’ – a role that it plays due to our pressure on it, to our urgencies and even to the safety solutions that have been developed for the sector. Although we cannot foresee the path of the much-needed debate on the nuclear issue, it is certain that as energy it will continue to define our future and our imagination, which will remain attentive to the accompanying dangers.
