Tell U.S. & S. African governments: end radioactive "recycling"
April 9, 2013
U.S. nuclear weapons waste could end up in your zipper, belt buckle or frying pan if the Department of Energy lifts its bans on release of metal from radioactive areas.
South African nuclear weapons waste could end up in your earrings, forks or baby toys if three radioactive metal smelters are given licenses by the South African government.
Global opposition helped delay--maybe stop--the shipment of radioactive steam generators from Canada’s Bruce Nuclear power reactors to Sweden to be released into the everyday metal recycling market.
NIRS and Coalition Against Nuclear Energy South Africa (CANE SA) are joining forces and asking for your help to stop the radioactive poisoning of the world's metal supply by shining the light of public attention on the South Africa and U.S. threats.
Send a letter below to President Obama and South African Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, head of South Africa’s National Nuclear Energy Executive Coordinating Committee (NNEECC) and demand an end to these dangerous programs.
