Grace Thorpe, USA (Kopie)
1999 in Los Alamos
Grace Thorpe had learned that her tribe, the Sac and Fox Nation, and 16 other native American tribes were willing to bury high-level radioactive waste on their land for 100,000 US-Dollar. She blocked the deal and founded the National Enviromental Coalition of Native Americans to save reserves nationwide from the dumping lobby. More than seventy tribes have joined.
