Hanford – Multiple Secret Green Runs Released 685K Curies Radioactive Iodine On Washington And Oregon

The video offers a reflection on the effect of radiation on children by Kay Sutherland, a Hanford downwinder from Walla Walla, Washington. Listen to her talking about the loss of her children and many other children in the graveyard, due to multiple, secret Green Run radioactive releases from the Hanford nuclear facility.

Dedicated to Kay Sutherland & Hanford downwinders.

The Green Run(s)
Activities at Hanford resulted in the release of large amounts of radiation into the air, water and soil of the Northwest over several decades. Many of the radiation releases have exceeded permissible limits. 
Some of the radiation releases have admittedly been intentional, a way of conducting Cold War nuclear experiments on an unknowing and captive civilian population
All of it was done in the name of the national security and the rush to produce more and more plutonium.
The largest intentional release of radiation at Hanford occurred in 1949, and is known as the “Green Run.” The public was unaware of this event until some 40 years later, in the late 1980’s, when the DOE first declassified release reports acknowledging that the Green Run had occurred and then only after a newspaper reporter sued the agency.
Documents showed that Hanford intentionally and secretly released about 8,000 curies of radioactive iodine on Dec. 2, 1949. This was just one of many Green Runs. Allegedly the radiation was released to monitor the radioactive plume stretching across Oregon and Washington in hopes of evaluating equipment used in determining the location of similar Soviet plutonium production plants.
The Green Run was a huge release by any standard. The 1979 Three Mile Island accident released between 15 and 24 curies of radioactive iodine, several hundred times less than the Green Run, and nearby residents were evacuated from the area.
No one living downwind from Hanford was ever evacuated or warned of the Green Run or any of the other radioactive release from Hanford. Spanning more than 40 years, a set of 400 environmental documents were made public in 1986.
These documents revealed that Hanford regularly emitted radiation into the environment. Between 1944 and 1947 the total estimated radioactive Iodine released from Hanford was at least 685,000 Curies; a truly staggering amount.
Despite this fact, contractors working for the federal government at Hanford repeatedly informed the public that Hanford was safe. 
When the public asked nuclear experts and government authorities if Hanford was safe, they were told that “not one atom” had ever escaped from Hanford and that Hanford was as “safe as mother’s milk.”
The same lie continues on today. The nuclear industry has not changed one bit. If asked, nuclear ‘experts’ will claim that low level radiation is not harmful. Ask this mother if she believes this. The nuclear industry to this day is still performing unauthorized radiation experiments on a public that is NOT being informed of the dangers, nor the release amounts, what is in them, etc. Nothing has changed since the Green Run. If anything, the coverups have gotten worse.
