Green Party Wants to Stop Aiken Becoming Nuclear Dump

With Democrats struggling over their choice of candidate, a good choice for South Carolina could be the truly Green candidate – Tom Clements.

Clements works for the environmental organization Friends of the Earth on nuclear issues and is considered the public interest watchdog over the Department of Energy’s sprawling Savannah River Site nuclear complex located near Aiken.

Celements’ 30-year history on nuclear and human rights issues, including almost 15 years with the Greenpeace international nuclear campaign could be important for locals.

The Aiken area could become the nation’s spent fuel dump and reprocessing site.

That is exactly what is advocated by Senator DeMint, Representative Gresham Barrett and special interests which stand to profit at Aiken becoming a nuclear dump.

Is that what you want for this area? Have your say.
