The nuclear madness of George Bush
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2006/661/661p12.htm>

On February 6, US President George Bush confirmed his intention to
commit the US to a program of reprocessing nuclear fuel. Touted as a key
measure in the ''Advanced Energy Initiative'', outlined in Bush's
January State of the Union speech, the plutonium extracted from spent
fuel is allegedly to be used as a fuel source for a new generation of
nuclear power plants across the US and elsewhere. The proposal will
overturn a 29-year ban in the US on reprocessing spent nuclear fuel to
extract plutonium. [Full article]

Oxfam report: Australia's Indigenous health shame
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2006/661/661p24.htm>

You will probably never meet Ken (not his real name). He's off to work
at two o'clock each morning, a driver of a street-sweeping vehicle in a
fast-gentrifying capital city suburb. He's been cleaning streets for 10
years. But it is not just the ungodly hour he goes to work: as an
Indigenous Australian man, Ken has a 34-37% chance of dying before the
age of 55. [Full article]
