Bay Area Nuclear Waste Coalition

  Looking for a beautiful patch of land to defend on Earth Day? A desert gathering April 25-27 will protest a proposed low-level nuclear waste dump planned for Ward Valley, 20 miles west of Needles, Calif. (HCN, 3/3/97). Events include nonviolence workshops, ecology walks, tours of the proposed dump site and a Spirit Run hosted by nearby Colorado River Indian tribes. Bring a tent, camper or sleep under the stars but don't expect quiet: Organizers say they expect at least 1,500 people. Food and water will be provided. Contact Bay Area Nuclear (BAN) Waste Coalition at 415/752-8678 or Save Ward Valley at 619/326-6267.
