News clip from Arirang TV Korea
Alex reports on the various voices from the international nuclear mafia (NRC, IAEA, Japanese authorities) - on their outrageous plan to dump hundreds of thousands of tons of radioactive water from Fukushima right into the Pacific Ocean.

In our first interview, Gerri interviews Paula Maccabee, with waterlegacy.org. They are battling a sulfide mine by the Polymet Corporation, proposed for an ecologically sensitive area in Northern Minnesota, USA.

Then it's Bill Carter, author of "Boom, Bust, Boom", the story of world copper mining. From the humble former copper town of Bisbee Arizona (where Radio Ecoshock is broadcast!) through Alaska, and around the world. For more: http://www.billcarter.cc/

It all started when Billy tried to plant a garden in Bisbee, and found the soil had been wrecked for generations by a copper mine. There was no company to make it right, and no technology to fix soil poisoned by heavy metals.

There are mine battles all over. Here's shout out to my friends in B.C. who have so far held off the Fish Lake Mine. And those in Australia trying to kill off gigantic climate-wrecking coal mines.

We hear how to fight back.
