Obama's Georgia Nukes Selectively Penalize Black Communities. Is That Environmental Racism?

Reprinted from Black Agenda Report

Can a black president be guilty of environmental racism? President Obama's new proposed nukes are in one of the poorest areas east of the Mississippi. Burke County Georgia is majority black, the home of existing commercial nuclear reactors and directly across the river from the Savannah River nuclear weapons facility. Its river is the 4th most polluted in the nation, and its residents are suffering a veritable epidemic of unexplained cancers, with no local, federal, public or private funds available to test their air, soil, water or environment for its causes. But Burke County's residents are neither silent nor powerless.

Later, all delegates were asked to introduce themselves, before nominations for the Coordinating Council and for the open seats for DoNGPA were taken. The lunch break soon followed.

Sincere Thanks to our Webmaster for Restoring Party's Online Presence

The Georgia Green Party is indebted to a committed Green volunteer, Dan Everett of Athens, for maintaining and recently restoring this website. Due to technical difficulties, the site was offline for several weeks this year. The Party sincerely thanks Dan for his expertise in rebuilding the site from archived files.

For anyone who doesn't know Dan, he is a professor of Computer Science in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia. His work with the Party over many years has included serving as faculty advisor for the Campus Greens at UGA and also helping to found and organize the Athens/Clarke County Green Party.

Please take a moment to notice that our published website (www.greens.org/georgia) is actually a pointer to the web-location that you currently see in the address-bar of your web browser. The site "www.accgreenparty.org" is owned by the Athens/Clarke County Green Party. That's right! The Georgia Green Party website is currently hosted by one of its county affiliates. There's nothing particluarly "wrong" or technically-limiting by this arrangement, and as noted, the Party is grateful to Dan for hosting the Georgia Party website for these many years. However, if so directed by the 2009 convention of the state Party and/or the incoming state committee (coordinating council), the Party can rebuild and/or redesign this website at an address registered directly to the state Party.

  • In order to create its own "independent" website, required resources will include donated funding and volunteer expertise.
  • If this project interests you, please consider attending the 2009 annual convention and/or send email to ggp@greens.org.

Interested website volunteers have a fine example (and a tough act to follow) in Dan Everett. Thanks, Dan!
