World Heritage Committee Decision on Selous Game Reserve PAVING THE WAY for URANIUM DEVELOPMENT

 

Dear Defenders,

I am sending this on to you even though it is not in our Treaty Territory. It is sent by our good friend and ally, Gunder Wippel.

The information is so sad. When will the insanity stop?

Please pass it on if you wish.

Thank you.

Mission Statement

"Defenders of the Black Hills is a group of volunteers without racial or tribal boundaries whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the environment of the 1851 and 1868 Treaty Territories, Treaties made between the United States and the Great Sioux Nation."

 

 

Speaking about radioactive fallout, the late President John F. Kennedy said,

"Even then, the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards. But this is not a natural health hazard and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby who may be born long after we are gone, should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent."
