Hearings on Federal Plans to Make Hanford a National Radioactive Waste Dump and Abandon Existing Contamination - In Hood River on Tuesday 2/9 and in Portland on Wednesday 2/10

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Gerald Pollet, Executive Director, Co-Founder & Attorney for Heart of America Northwest, a 16,000 member citizens group: providing research and leading organizing, legal and lobbying efforts in the region and nationally for cleanup of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation; protecting the Northwest and Columbia River from the threat to resume using Hanford as a national radioactive and radioactive hazardous waste dump; and, working for a safe and clean energy future to reduce global warming without creating more nuclear waste.

For 25 years Gerry Pollet has been organizing on Hanford, environmental and peace issues, and political campaigns in Washington. Gerry has lobbied, written major legislation at federal and state level, and testified to Congress. He will talk about the movement to stop use of Hanford as a national radioactive waste dump and to oppose USDOE's plan to abandon the contamination leaked from the High-Level Nuclear Waste Tanks as it spreads rapidly towards the Columbia River.
