Last August 9, on the 54th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, hundreds of activists, including survivors of the attack, congregated outside the Los Alamos National Laboratory to protest against nuclear weapons. We now hear from a Native American activist in Albuquerque about the health effects of nuclear testing on her community.
