Will Decision to Call Race a Day Before Primary Deter Californians from Voting in Key Race?


Democracy Now!

Published on Jun 7, 2016

http://democracynow.org – While primaries and caucuses are underway in six states today, most of the nation’s attention is focused on California—the largest state in the union. In addition to the Hillary Clinton-Bernie Sanders race, voters will be deciding who will face off in November to succeed U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer. Thanks to a 2010 state law, California voters are expected to choose between two Democrats: California Attorney General Kamala Harris and U.S. Representative Loretta Sánchez. We are joined by Rose Aguilar, host of “Your Call,” a daily public affairs radio show on NPR-affiliate KALW in San Francisco.

Nuclear Activists Speak Out During Dept. of Energy Tour over Nuclear Waste


June 07, 2016

The Department of Energy is conducting an eight-city national tour aimed at gathering public feedback on the issue of where to store nuclear waste. The agency has launched a so-called consent-based siting model to determine where to store spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. At a hearing in Boston Thursday, Paul Gunter of Beyond Nuclear raised objections to the process.

Paul Gunter: “How does the public in the affected community build trust when the Department of Energy itself is a promotional agency doing the bidding of the nuclear industry by direct promotion, and that the whole process going forward to date has lacked consent? There’s never been consent with regard to generation of nuclear waste.”
