YUCCA MOUNTAIN, SACRED TO THE SHOSHONE & MAJOR FAULT ZONE, IN IMMINENT
DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY MOVES PLANS FORWARD TO TURN YUCCA MOUNTAIN INTO NUCLEAR
PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD DEADLINE JANUARY 10, 2008.
Public hearings have not been well attended, statements mostly in favor of the plan to put all of the nuclear waste in the country in this one sacred place. Activists were told that if we do not go on record with a statement,
we will have no legal recourse later on. Local papers & media spin have
recently stated that opposition to the nuke dump had dropped off since the
passing of Corbin Harney. The nuclear reps are confident to the point of
acting like it’s a done deal.
LETS PROVE THEM WRONG! MAKE YOUR COMMENT NOW
& TAKE ACTION!!
Yucca Mountain is sacred to the Shoshone as an herb gathering site, for
rituals, and as a part of their stories. Yucca Mountain is known in Shoshone
language as Snake Mountain. Indeed it looks like a snake. It is said that
the snake was headed north when it froze where it is. Further more it is
said that it will move again and “flip around”. Geologists say that there
are thirteen different fault lines running through it.
Citizens can make an oral statement at the scheduled public hearings or
fill out a form and mail it in to EIS Office U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Mgmt, 1551 Hillshire dr. Las Vegas,
NV, 89195-7308 or by e-mail at

HERE ARE TALKING POINTS:
“The eyes of the elders are on us. The fate of the unborn is rolling
toward the cliff, the voice of Corbin Harney is ringing in my ears, “It’s on
your shoulders now…”. Info from Bear Dyken.
