BURE, France -- In May-June 2019, Leona Morgan, Diné [Navajo] anti-nuclear activist, came to Europe. On initiative of Pascal Grégis, member of the CSIA-nitassinan, (Committee in Support of American Indians -- Nitassinan), she was invited by the CSIA, CEDRA, Meuse Nature Environment and the Réseau Sortir Du Nucléaire, to visit the Bure area in eastern France, where people are fighting against a project of deep burial, highly radioactive nuclear waste site, and talked about the situation in New Mexico. She started her European trip there, on May 24. She first visited the area – as far as the military police let people go – and talked at a meeting in Bettancourt-la-Ferrée in the evening.
