Oppose the Holtec/ ELEA Centralized Interim Storage Facility in New Mexico by July 30, 2018
One of the potential Centralized Interim Storage (CIS) sites is currently seeking public input on environmental scoping as they pursue a license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, even prior to Congressional approval: Holtec International/Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance’s facility in New Mexico, for 173,600 metric tons of waste reactor fuel. If licensing of the CIS facility were approved, thousands of high-risk shipments of the waste, on highways, railroads and barges, would endanger a third of the US population that lives along transport routes that run through 44 states. Submit comments regarding the environmental scoping of the Holtec CIS facility. Click here for sample comments from Beyond Nuclear.
2nd US Delegation to Join Peace Actions at German Air Base that Hosts US H-Bombs
Nuclear abolitionists in Germany will again sponsor 20 weeks of nonviolent resistance at Büchel Air Base, from March 26 to August 9, 2018. The campaign demands that the 20 US B61 H-bombs at Büchel be sent home permanently—not replaced with new bombs as the US intends—and that Germany ratify the new nuclear weapons ban treaty. A delegation from the US coordinated by Nukewatch will join the Büchel peace camp July 10-18. For more info., visit the websites buechel-atombombenfrei.de and atomwaffenfrei.de (click on International & English), where you can consider joining the delegation, and endorse the campaign by signing the Declaration of Solidarity.
To support a scholarship fund for the delegation, please send a donation to Nukewatch today—online or by mailing to Nukewatch, 740A Round Lake Road, Luck, Wisconsin 54853.
