Navajo Anna Rondon: Fukushima wakeup call for human race

Navajo Anna Rondon on American Indian Airwaves
Fukushima is a wakeup call for the human race
Listen now to the April 12, 2011 program:
Navajo Anna Rondon describes the global movement to halt the destruction and death from nuclear power, from Indian country to Los Alamos, New Mexico, and Japan.
Rondon said the uranium mining cleanup has never occurred on Navajoland or in the Pueblos, yet President Obama is pushing new nuclear power plants.
Uranium mining has poisoned the water and killed the people since the beginning of uranium mining during the Cold War in Navajoland, the Pueblos and the Grand Canyon.
Rondon describes how Navajo children played in the radioactive runoff, and Navajos ate the radioactive food, and died.
Rondon describes US policy as a license to kill.
"The elected officials are bought and paid for, while the people are dying."
"As citizens we need to rise up."
Rondon said there is no "clean and green" nuclear energy, as President Obama claims. She said Obama should come to Navajoland and experience the reality from the families who have suffered and hear how their loved ones died.
Rondon, who was 11 years old when she was present at the occupation of Alcatraz, said the long and painful deaths of children, from Australia to Africa, continues as the corporate assassinators continue to kill with nuclear power and uranium mining.
