Diné NO NUKES and SANS will be hosting an evening of film screening and discussion on oppression and colonization by nuclear industry, drawing connections between Fukushima and Churchrock, NM – two of the places that are harmed by devastating nuclear disasters.
We’re excited to have Leona Morgan of Diné NO NUKES based in Albuquerque, NM, who will be joining us at post-screening discussion. She will speak on conditions near abandoned uranium mines in the Diné homelands; contamination of water, air and soil, displacement of the people, and continued resource colonization.
