MOVIE "Broken on All Sides" SAT Sept 27th 7PM PDF Print E-mail

FREE DOCUMENTARY ON IMPORTANT ISSUE...


MOVIE: "Broken on All Sides: Race, Mass Incarceration & New Visions for Criminal Justice in the US"

SATURDAY Sept 27th, 7PM

Columbia Friends Meeting House,

120 Pisgah Church Road,  Columbia, SC 29203


The documentary centers around the theory put forward by many, and most recently by Michelle Alexander (who appears in the movie), that mass incarceration has become "The New Jim Crow." That is, since the rise of the drug war and the explosion of the prison population, and because discretion within the system allows for arrest and prosecution of people of color at alarmingly higher rates than whites, prisons and criminal penalties have become a new version of Jim Crow. Through inter¬views with people on many sides of the criminal justice system, this documentary aims to answer questions and provoke questions on an issue walled-off from the public's scrutiny.

Directed by Matthew Pillshcer.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

ACTION ALERT: Oppose German HEU Nuclear Waste Coming to SRS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Thursday, 26 June 2014 16:46

UPDATE: Both the Aiken Standard and the Augusta Chronicle have come out with op-eds opposing dumping German HEU nuclear waste at SRS:

"Don't Dump on Us" and "New German Waste Another Bad Signal"

TAKE ACTION...Submit your comment by MONDAY July 21st! See info below...


 

ACTION ALERT: Oppose German HEU Nuclear Waste Coming to SRS

The Department of Energy (DOE) is considering proposals to bring German HEU (Highly Enriched Uranium) commercial spent fuel to the Savannah River Site for processing and disposal.  But there is no place to dispose of it for the long-term meaning it would wind up dumped at SRS for decades if not permanently.  Environmentalists and concerned citizens have already spoken out at a DOE Hearing in North Augusta in opposition on Tuesday June 24th… now it is your TURN TO SPEAK UP!

TAKE ACTION! Tell DOE to Consider the Environmental & Financial Liabilities of Dumping German Nuclear Waste at SRS.

The DOE is soliciting comment from the public to make an Environmental Assessment (EA) on whether bringing German HEU Nuclear Waste to SRS would have a “significant impact” on the local community, thus requiring a more researched “environmental impact statement” (EIS) under federal law.  Boosters and supporters of bringing German HEU Nuclear Waste to SRS are urging a finding of “no significant impact” to avoid an environmental impact statement. Tell DOE to consider the environmental & financial liabilities of dumping German nuclear waste at SRS. Please include any additional factors…environmental or socioeconomic… that should be weigh in on considering a community impact.
