Explore the nuclear fuel chain and key threats to the environment like Sandia National Laboratories’ mixed waste landfill and the proposed centralized interim storage of high-level radioactive waste.

From uranium mining and enrichment to weapons production and nuclear waste storage, we here in New Mexico live quite literally in the “belly of the beast.” The Nuclear Issues Study Group (NISG) is organizing a symposium in December to make information about nuclearism accessible and to get more people— especially students, young people, and people of color—involved in resisting the nuclear beast. During the symposium, we will do our best to explore and expose every stage of the nuclear fuel chain—past, current, and future—as well as highlight some key threats to New Mexico that NISG is focusing on including: Sandia National Laboratories’ Mixed Waste Landfill and the proposed Centralized “Interim” Storage of high-level radioactive waste from nuclear reactors in the southeastern corner of our state.

The symposium will include presentations, panel discussions, and information tables plus art, poetry and music focusing on all aspects of the nuclear production chain. We are inviting speakers from all over New Mexico and the country to share their stories, their work, and how we can take action to protect our environment and our communities!
