We are about to see and we are hopeful for change. For decades, MCE has been committed to removing radioactive waste from sites in the St. Louis region. One of these sites, known as Westlake, has been neglected since radioactve wastes leftover from the Manhattan Project were dumpeed there in the early 1970's. Today, Steven Hsieh, reported on the critical situation in Bridgeton in Rolling Stone magazine.
Today we are hopeful that this coverage will open eyes, reverse complacency, and trigger a set of actions that restores accountability to government officials and human health as a priority over profit.
Read the article here and then return to our site to a sign a petition to remove radioactive wastes from Westlake. I also invite you to become a member and make a donation today. For $40 you can join MCE and become part of community that believes places like the Westlake Superfund Site are our shared responsibility. MCE is the only environmental organization working on this issue and your support is the reason the AG has filed a lawsuit, that there is air monitoring of the site, and that Rolling Stone is shedding light on this issue.
I hope you will join us.
