We urge everyone to join us in doing everything we personally can do to gain public commitments from elected officials and candidates to prevent all (not some) plutonium warhead core ("pit") production at LANL and to prevent the construction of a new plutonium pit factory complex. Communicate, publicly if possible, directly with the individuals involved and with their staffs, who may attend. Go to their donors and get commitments there. Go to the news media and editors. We urge all parties to do we can do to make sure there is a steep political price to be paid for the silence and enabling behavior we have seen up to now.
We are now seeing signs of desperation from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) about the fate of these projects, and for good reason. It is therefore very important in the present critical context to firmly communicate with our elected officials and candidates and make their actions and inactions the central theme of all of our various forms of involvement.
What LANL wants to do is illegal, immoral, grossly uneconomic, militarily ridiculous, and has already begun to appear in the world press, further harming the reputation of the U.S. and no doubt stimulating nuclear weapons programs elsewhere. Not to put too fine a point on the matter, corporate and employee self-interest are the primary forces moving these projects forward. We have succeeded multiple times in stopping these plans before and we can do so again if we are firm. We urge you not to waste your testimony by counting on anyone or anything else but the New Mexico congressional delegation to make your hopes into realities. Let's help them do so, as concretely as we can.
