Radoactive racism — World uranium hearings testimony

At The World Uranium Hearing held in Salzburg, Austria in September 1992, witnesses from all continents including indigenous speakers and scientists testified to the falsity of the terminology used and sanctioned by industry and governments worldwide. Fifty years of military and civilian use of nuclear power meant war for those whose homelands have been used for mining and processing of uranium and chosen for atomic weapons testing, atomic energy production, and atomic waste disposal. Every day human life and the natural world are sacrificed along the radioactive trail of our nuclear way…

One of the speakers at the 1992 event was Thomas Banycaya. He died on February 6th, 1999, at a hospital in Keane Canyon, Arizona. He was eighty-nine years old. Banycaya was one of four young men sent out into the world in 1948 by Hopi spiritual leaders to make known, in the aftermath of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the “Gourds of Ash” ancient Hopi prophecy. May the teachings of the indigenous witnesses on whose lands most of the destruction has taken place remind us that the Earth is sacred.
