> Conference in Columbus, Ohio
> Saturday, September 25th, 2004
> RAD. ALERT:
> Nuclear Dollars Versus The Common Good
> Why Should You Care?
> Nuclear technology from mining, to enrichment, to the generation of
> electricity by nuclear reactors, to the use of depleted uranium as a
> technique of genocide, inflicts harm and hazard all along the way.
> Nuclear issues as they have become more complex affect every part of
> our daily lives. The new generation of nuclear weapons may lack the
> dramatic mushroom clouds, but they provide the no-less-dangerous roar
> of Geiger counters to demonstrate the silence of genetic damage.
> Nuclear issues are now simultaneously peace issues, environmental
> issues, democracy issues, public health issues, energy sustainability
> issues, justice issues, legal issues, and moral issues. The familiar
> separations between issue areas have dissolved.
> We have drawn together some of the best people available to lead us in
> a day of education and hope. The idea is that if we leave this
> conference better informed about the details of and the multiple
> tragedies caused by the pursuit of nuclear profits, we will be better
> able to communicate for change.
