Dear Friends and Comrades in the struggle for environmental justice,
In February, George W. Bush issued a letter to Congress approving Yucca Mountain (Nevada) as a permanent federal repository for high-level nuclear waste. If Congress approves, tens of thousands of tons of high-level nuclear waste will be shipped across the country on trains and trucks, endangering millions and millions of Americans, and dumped at Yucca Mountain – a sacred site to the Western Shoshone and Pauite peoples. We must stop Congress from approving Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste dump.
Indigogirls.com and website links will provide you with the information you need to learn more on this issue and take immediate action. Time is critical, as a vote in Congress is expected some time this Spring.
Please join us in our efforts – you can make a difference! Tell your friends, tell everyone you know, write a letter or call your Senator and tell them to stop this dump. Together we issue a resounding, “NO NUCLEAR WASTE AT YUCCA MOUNTAIN! NO NUCLEAR WASTE ON NATIVE LANDS!”
