JULY 25: SENATE CALL-IN DAY! ANI & FRIENDS LOBBY CONGRESS TO STOP NUCLEAR WASTE DUMP ON SKULL VALLEY

Created: 07/06/12

On July 25, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, actor James Cromwell, Winona LaDuke and Skull Valley Goshute tribal members will spearhead a national lobby day against the federal energy bill and a nuclear industry plan to dump 44,000 tons of highly radioactive waste on Goshute land in Utah. Ani and friends will hold a congressional briefing and then meet with several Senate offices in an effort to bring out the truth about the billions of dollars of nuclear funding contained in the energy bill and the environmental racism of the Skull Valley dump proposal.


Please call or e-mail your Senators on Monday July 25 to support this effort.
Flood the Senate with your calls! Keep calling all week!
