Anti-nuclear activists, professors and students criticized the University of Colorado's Board of Regents at a public forum on the Boulder campus Thursday night over CU's pending partnership with Lockheed Martin and the University of Texas to manage the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
"I question both the legitimacy of the partnership and the process," said Adrienne Anderson, former CU environmental studies instructor and corporate whistle-blower whose contract wasn't renewed last spring. Anderson was one of 15 people who spoke to the crowd of about 50 during the public hearing.
"At Thursday's meeting, the overwhelming majority of attendees and speakers were opposed to any affiliation between CU and Los Alamos, even if in a nonweapons-building capacity."
So let me see if I understand, the "overwhelming majority" of the "crowd" of 50 activists opposed affiliation with LANL. Boy, they sure have convinced me; we better reexamine national policy. Nice job Denver Post, I guess it sells papers.
