Purpose

The purposes of this event are:

  • Educational

To educate the community about the dangers of the groundwater contamination with weapons grade plutonium and other radioactive isotopes at the Hanford site and it's eventual release into the Columbia river, the dangers of nuclear energy as it relates to the Columbia Generating Station plant(a similar design to the Fukushima plant), and the problems with the delays and safety concerns at the vitrification plant.

  • Communication

To bring all concerned parties to the table to discuss the challenges and gather feedback from current, past, and future generations.
