Introduction

 

After 9.11 event, military violence in the name of “war against terrorism” has spread out in Asian context and in the global one. Another dark phenomenon of globalization in area of multinational capitalism, poverty, diseases, migrant workers and global warming etc has heavily attacked the global citizens. Especially, the vulnerable Others as the least, the lost and the last are rapidly disempowered under these waves of globalization.  All the more, all of us in the world are confronting a common, unprecedented problem?the possibility of annihilation of all beings by nuclear disaster or ecological destruction.

 

In confronting with this urgent planetary problems and destabilization of human security of the periphery/the bottom (eg., peoples with disabilities, indigenous peoples, migrant workers) our moral and socio-cultural practices have to address the interweaving issues of the personal , the political and the global problem according to a new sense of reality, for the personal wellbeing is interrelated/interdepended.with the planetary wellbeing  This new practice needs to lift up the muted Others’ voices and their leadership in the public, mainstreaming discourse.  As a pro-ecofeminist  I will bring  ecofeminist vision and practice into the issue of how to empower people with disabilities, since I believe that ecofeminist movement as one of the significant eco-peace movement can give a great contribution to practice of resistance and transformation of the vulnerable Others against  any ‘-ism’ of domination and oppression., particularly to egalitarian practice of people with disabilities, with aiming to the construction of a new non-hierarchical and ecological community.

 

My article will consist of four parts. The first one is to discuss a new sense of reality in our time and paradigm shift issues (ch.1). The second one will be the meaning of the ecofeminist vision and practice, and their applicability into the eco-justice peace movement issue of people with disabilities (ch.2-4). The third one is about ‘liberative’ hermeneutics for empowerment of people with disabilities (ch.5). Final one is to deal with construction of the greater community of resistance and transformation against violence (ch.6-7). The focus is not on what kinds of problems the disabilities discourse has, but on how people with disabilities can be empowered in our troubled world by ecofeminist vision and practice.
