ACTIVISTS ON DU IMPACT
Video clips of interviews on island's contamination
While in Vieques in September 2007, I spoke with
Nilda Medina, Ismael Guadalupe, filmmaker Andres Nieves and Robert
Rabin, founders and members of the Committee for the Rescue and
Development of Vieques, on the impact from contamination from the U.S.
Navy bombing practice on the Puerto Rican island. These interviews are part of a developing
documentary on the impact of depleted uranium contamination on people
and the environment.
Nilda speaks of the need for health services,
Ismael offers insights into the resistance against the U.S. Navy
presence for over 60 years and the contamination, Andres tells how he was
personally affected, and Robert scopes out the history of the
occupation and the extent of the contamination. These are roughly
compiled video clips, basically unaltered. Below each photo is are links
to video files of segments from each interview, each in the 10 minute range -- Wes Rehberg
