“In the city the peace walk met up with the World Network For Saving Children From Radiation, a network dedicated to making sure no more children grow up with the threat of deformities, cancer, and death from radiation.”
Mie Athearn spoke about her experiences moving from Fukushima to the US. check out her blog.
[via DrVonSkillet] “Dr. Kearfott, a nuclear physics Professor at the University of Michigan has stated that,
’The radiation levels in parts I visited with my students were higher than those in evacuated zones around Fukushima nuclear disaster.’
How is it that the entire world has heard of Fukushima, but many people right here in North America have no idea what is going on in Rapid City, South Dakota?
Riley Pass Mine is approximately 40 miles away from Mount Rushmore. These “faces of democracy” bring about 3 million tourists a year to South Dakota where the home population is roughly 800,000 people.
These tourists bring money into the state. It is highly unlikely that 3 million people a year would continue to visit South Dakota if they knew that when they stayed on their patriotic family vacations they were drinking radioactive water, eating radioactive burgers, and breathing in uranium dust. The elected officials of South Dakota are well aware of this, and have no interest in making this information public knowledge.
The radiation from these mines is everywhere. It is in our air, our water, our food and our land. It is accumulating in our bodies and permanently altering our human DNA chain. It has caused the people of the northern plains to have the highest cancer rates in the country.” From, Walk for the People | Walk for the Earth - Say no to Uranium Mining
