America,s Chernobyl! They go to their sacred place to pray and are inhaling radioactive dust. The Great Sioux Nation has been taken advantage of all along. It brings tears to my eyes!!
Thank You Judy.

This is an outrage! The people in this country must rise up and demand a ban on mining!

“The radiation levels in parts I visited with my students were higher than those in the evacuated zones around the Fukushima nuclear disaster…” Dr. K. Kearfott, a nuclear physics professor at the University of Michigan

I've been saying for years, the American Indians were and are the canary in the coal mine. They were the first to be used, abused, exploited, to have their whole way of life and their health destroyed. You want to know what is in store for the rest of us, what most of the USA will be like, then pay attention to what happened and is still happening to the American Indian.

Russell Means, Lakota Activist had said awhile back, "Welcome my brothers and sisters to the Reservation." He didn't mean that you showed up to visit where he lived, he was speaking how the entire USA is turning into one big Reservation.

Look around, there is not one aspect of our lives that are not being negatively affected; just like happened to them.

When you don't learn your history, when you don't stand up for your brothers and sisters, then it comes time at some point to roost at your own door.

Thank you everyone. This situation is certainly grave, and we don't hear about it. Dandelion is right, the indigenous Americans are the canary in the coal mine.
