Dear members and friends –

Tomorrow evening – Monday, April 11th, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm – we will continue our weekly public seminars on practical policy responses to our converging crises by taking an in-depth look at the current status of, and prospects for, the proposed plutonium storage, processing, and manufacturing complex at Los Alamos, currently slated to cost about $7 billion in toto.   

As before we will meet tomorrow at the Albuquerque Mennonite Church, 1300 Girard Blvd NE (map).

We’ll discuss the same topic in Santa Fe on Tuesday April 12th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at St. John's United Methodist Church, 1200 Old Pecos Trail, Room 116 (downstairs) (map).  (To get to Room 116, go in the double glass doors toward the north of the building, which face east.  Room 116 is down one level from the entrance.) 

We have done our homework on this.  Over the last five years we have been on Capitol Hill and elsewhere in Washington for dozens of weeks, speaking to officials and educating Congress on this and related topics.  We remain in frequent contact with at least some of these decision makers.  I was in Washington for two weeks in late February working on nuclear weapons budget issues and will return there again next month after a hearing in federal court on April 27 on our motion to enjoin further investment in the flagship facility in this proposed complex, the so-called "Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Nuclear Facility (CMRR-NF). 

The decision to proceed with this project -- or not to proceed -- will be momentous for New Mexico and the world.  But as you will find out, "decision" is too crisp a word.   

In the last half-hour of each of these meetings we will discuss ways each of us can be more involved -- and effective.  We hope you will come. 

Best wishes,

Greg Mello
