On 10 September 2012, Mei Shigenobu appeared as a guest in the program Free word on Al Mayadeen Channel hosted by George Galloway.


She earned her PhD degree in Media Studies from Doshisha University in 2011, doing research on the development of Arabic media, and the effect of satellite channels (a case study of Al Jazeera) on Arab societies.

Mei Shigenobu appears in Nobuyuki Oura’s November 2006 movie 9/11-8/15 Japan Pack Suicide (『9.11-8.15-日本心中-』 ) . Mei also appears in Documentary on Zunou Keisatsu (ドキュメンタリー頭脳警察 , 2009) , a documentary featuring the life of the Japanese Rock band “Zunou Keisatu” (頭脳警察 , ‘Brain Police’) and its lead singer PANTA.


In 2010, Mei costarred in the fictional Japanese movie on figure skating Coach as a sports journalist. In 2010, Mei Shigenobu and her mother Fusako Shigenobu were featured in Shane O’Sullivan’s documentary film Children of the Revolution, which premiered at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam. In 2011, Mei Shigenobu was featured in Eric Baudelaire’s experimental movie The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi, and 27 years without Images along with filmmaker and Japanese Red Army member Masao Adachi, which was entered at the 22nd Marseilles International Film Festival.


Though she was not a citizen of any country until March 2001, when she received Japanese citizenship.

She came out of hiding after her mother was captured in Osaka, and visited Japan for the first time in April 2001, making her the first child of a Red Army member to return to Japan in five years. She was the subject of some controversy in December 2001 when she gave a talk at a public school in Kanagawa Prefecture about Arab culture and food at the invitation of a teacher there; the Israeli embassy in Tokyo sent a complaint to the school, describing her discussion as conveying “blatant, biased political” anti-Israeli sentiments. She then began working as an English teacher in a cram school in Tokyo. Japanese lawyers, scholars, journalists, writers and activists responded by signing a protest petition against the Israeli embassy and government saying that Mei was now a Japanese citizen and had the right to freedom of speech in Japan.


Mei Shigenobu (重信 メイ , Shigenobu Mei) (born 1 March 1973), is the daughter of Japanese Red Army member Fusako Shigenobu and of a Palestinian who was reportedly the head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Some news agencies have given her name as May Shigenobu.


After three Japanese volunteers for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine PFLP External Operations executed an attack on Israel’s Lod Airport (see Lod Airport massacre) on 30 May 1972, PFLP leaders and other Japanese volunteers became targets for Israel’s assassinations. In retaliation for the attack, PFLP’s spokesman Ghassan Kanafani was killed on July 8, 1972, by the Israeli Intelligence Agency Mossad in a car bomb. Mei’s mother became wanted by the INTERPOL in 1974 after the French embassy hostage-taking in Hague in which she was thought to be involved, so Mei had to move frequently and used aliases to evade reprisals by her mother’s enemies.


She attempted to justify the group’s terrorist activities by saying that in the 1970s–1980s people had very different “moral values”, different “sensibilities and ways of thinking”, implying that her mother’s sentence should be rendered invalid and echoing her mother’s claim that since the criminal acts carried out had had political aims, she should not be convicted but rather offered a “political way out”.
