2009 Issues and Topics

Volume 10; Number 1 -- Looking to the Future

In this issue of Voices from the Earth, we focus on federal government initiatives that unfortunately have not made headlines, but significantly affect communities in New Mexico and elsewhere.


Volume 10; Number 2 -- International Relations

Sometimes our work at Southwest Research and Information Center (SRIC) introduces us to people from around the world. This issue of Voices from the Earth focuses on some of these relationships. We reintroduce the Jharkhandis Organisation Against Radiation (JOAR) in Jharkhand, India, as they discuss new developments in their community (see Voices from the Earth Spring 2007). We also discuss the work of SRIC's Paul Robinson with our friends at the Buryat Regional Organization on Baikal (BRO-Baikal, Russia), and the Center for Citizenship Education (CCE, Mongolia). And we participated in a new program, the Global Nuclear Legacy Project, that took Don Hancock to Budapest, Hungary, where he met with representatives of groups from the United States, Russia, and several European nations.

Volume 10; Number 3 -- Uranium: Past, Present, Future

Uranium mining — historical and future — continues to be a divisive issue in New Mexico. Community members affected by the dangers of past uranium mining are united in the belief that cleanup must be done. They have dealt with the polluting effects of uranium mining on their lands and their health for more than 50 year. Enough is enough.

The nuclear waste dump is permitted to operate until 2024, but the federal government want to expand the amount and types of waste allowed with NO end date.
We need your help to protect New Mexico!
