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.

Repeal South Carolina's "Stand Your Ground" Law PDF Print E-mail

“Stand Your Ground” is a radical rewrite of self-defense law that encourages the use of deadly force as a first resort rather than as a last resort, abandoning the centuries old doctrine of a “duty to retreat” when possible.  By deleting the “duty to retreat,” “Stand Your Ground” is really a “License to Kill” and will result in questionable homicides and unnecessary tragedies.
