> Dear Friends,

> Will Miller has connected us, and except for Jay (Hi Jay!) we've yet to
> meet.  This opportunity for us to work jointly on an issue pleases me very
> much.
>
> On Friday, May 1, 5-6 pm at the UVM Rugby Field on East Ave, there's an
> action of solidarity in opposition to VT dumping it's low level nuclear
> waste in Sierra Blanca, a Tex-Mex community of people who are putting up a
> strong resistence to blatant environmental racism (summary of event below).
>  I work for Sierra Club, and am affiliated with the Burlington Peace &
> Justice Coalition as a member of VT GrassRoutes. I'm organizing the event,
> and am messaging you to ask if you would speak on environmental racism,
> relating it to the dumping in Sierra Blanca.
>
> SUMMARY:
>
> Action of Solidarity with People of Sierra Blanca Opposed to
> Texas-Maine-Vermont Compact and Nuclear Waste Dump.
> Rugby Field, East Ave/Williston Rd., 5-6 pm.
> Come with friends; carry signs, banners, musical instruments, crosses.  Sing!
> (Performance participants, please arrive at 4:30 pm to rehearse.)
>
> Proposed Scenario: NECNP contingent from Brattleboro brings nuclear waste
> from VT Yankee.  Local activists stand for (in solidarity with) the people
> of Sierra Blanca; refuse the waste, explain why.  Elements of actions in
> Sierra Blanca can be incorporated -- singing, banners, altar-building,
> planting crosses by the road.   VT Congressional delegation actors defend
> their positions in favor of shipping VT nuclear waste to Texas (video tape
> of floor speeches coming Fed Ex so we can use direct quotes) -- essentially
> it's the line of the nuclear industry about how environmentally safe it is
> down there (contrary to the evidence that the site is on an earthquake
> fault, 16 miles from the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo, in a floodplain, etc).  (Who
> wants to play the TLLRWDA officials [men in black], or Gov. Bush?) Citizens
> of VT weigh the evidence and, perhaps, urge the Governor to refuse to send
> our waste to Texas, shut down VT Yankee and store VT waste there.  Message
> is delivered to Jim Hightower (who is in town that night for Bernie's
> fundraiser)  that people in Vermont are in solidarity with the hunger
> strikers in Sierra Blanca. Someone may offer to join the hunger strike, and
> maybe we will send a resolution to the Burlington City Council and Sister
> Cities Project that we desire to add another sister city, Sierra Blanca, to
> our roster.
>
> Consultant Groups: Friends of Sierra Blanca (Jose Luis Rodriguez, Maria
> Mendez, Patsy Ramirez, Bill Addington and Gloria Guerra Addington), Sierra
> Blanca Legal Defense Fund (Erin Rogers), Lonestar Chapter of Sierra Club
> (Larry Freilich), New England Coalition of Nuclear Pollution (Dave Pyles),
> Burlington Sister Cities Project (Melissa Birch), Peace & Justice Coalition

>
> Status of  the Texas/Maine/Vermont Compact S270/H.R.623:  Passed Senate
> April 1; sent to Conference Committee;  ammendments added; coming to
> another vote as soon as next week.  We need to publicize our opposition,and
> mail out an Alert  to (A) call the offices of our congressional delegation
> immediately and to (B) join us on May 1.
