Join CND for this online event discussing how uranium mining harms communities.

To produce nuclear power, uranium has to be mined. But this activity proves devastating for the communities – very often of Indigenous people – working in and living near the mines. As well as immediate and ongoing harms, contamination from uranium mining activity persists for tens of thousands of years, leaving a dangerous legacy for current and future generations.

Countries including Britain have exploited the human and natural resources of other countries to provide for their nuclear energy needs, resulting in long-term detrimental impacts. These include the destruction of ecosystems, and ongoing harm to human health due to persistent radiation exposure, especially in Indigenous communities still living around uranium mines sites that have never been fully decontaminated.

Join CND and Beyond Nuclear for this webinar to discuss how uranium mining for nuclear power production affects communities far away from where the power is consumed.
With guest speakers including Carletta Tilousi, from the Havasupai Tribal Council – guardians of the Grand Canyon; Bruno Chareyron, Scientific Advisor at CRIIRAD (Commission for Independent Research and Information about RADiation) (see here for report); and Linda Pentz Gunter, Beyond Nuclear. Chaired by Kate Hudson, CND General Secretary.
