The Committee for Alternatives to Radioactive Dumping (CARD) WIPP committee and Southwest Research and Information Center (SRIC) will be hosting a dinner and discussion with SRIC Director Don Hancock and WIPP committee member Lucille Cordova at the Peace Center on nuclear waste issues. We have received numerous public inquiries about the recent serious incidents at the Carlsbad Waste Isolation Pilot Program (WIPP), specifically the underground fire and a detected radiation leak at the facility. We would like to update concerned citizens about the ongoing issues at WIPP and latest proposals for transporting high level waste to WIPP. Come for dinner, stay for the discussion on Thursday, March 27, 6pm, at the Center for Peace and Justice in Albuquerque, 202 Harvard S.E. (no charge, donations accepted).
