Discovery Documents from Westinghouse Steam Generator Lawsuit - 60,000 pages of previously secret nuclear industry documents are now available to the public as a result of NAWO/Prarie Island Coalition intervention in the discovery process of the federal lawsuit brought by Northern States Power Co. against Westinghouse Electric Corp. This intervention reviewed more than 1,000,000 pages of internal nuclear industry documents, and was made possible by Professor Kenneth Tilsen and the Hamline University Interest Legal Clinic. These documents provide illuminating details on the sad state of Westinghouse's steam generators that are used in dozens and dozens of nuclear reactors around the world.

Interview with George Crocker on Pacifica Radio's Democracy NOW! - Nuclear power continues to be a major point of controversy all across the United States. From the deserts of southern California, to the banks of the Rio Grande in west Texas, Democracy Now! has heard from many activists and community groups about the effect of nuclear industry and nuclear waste on their lives. George Crocker was active with the Prarie Island Coalition at the time of this broadcast, battling the Prairie Island nuclear reactor on the Mississippi River near land belonging to Native Americans (this older material was first broadcast on October 14, 1997, but still has relevance).
