Attorney Frank Gerlach details problems in the U.S. program to help sick nuclear workers under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness and Compensation Program, in this preliminary video clip for the documentary "The Exposed." He spoke at a meeting of the Portsmouth/Piketon Residents for Environmental Safety and Security in Ohio -- co-founded by Vina Colley, a sick former worker at the USEC Portsmouth nuclear enrichment plant. Gerlach represents sick workers in their efforts to obtain compensation and medical aid from nuclear plant contamination through the program administered by the U.S. Dept. of Labor.

Above is a 14 minute video of a rally in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, organized by the Coalition for a Healthy Environment, whose organizers have been working since the mid-1990s for compensation, care and recognition of nuclear weapons worker contamination. Many among this group are sick from the poisons as well.
The rally, on June 25, 2008, was among others that day in Cleveland, Ohio, organized by Bethlehem Steel former workers in Buffalo, New York, in Denver, Colorado, organized by Rocky Flats former workers, and in Hispañola, New Mexico, by Los Alamos workers.
We're now developing a documentary on nuclear workers who have become poisoned by heavy metals, radiation and other contaminants and who are also struggling for adequate compensation for their illnesses for those who are yet alive but sick, and for acknowledgement that those who have died did so as a result of limited or no recognition that their illnesses were caused by exposure to contaminants, flawed human safety procedures and limited care.

This continues our series of preliminary video clips from interviews with sick nuclear plant workers, here with Mike Driver, who worked at the Paducah, KY, gaseous diffusion nuclear fuel enrichment plant. The preliminary clips are from filming for our documentary in process, "The Exposed," produced by Wes & Eileen Rehberg of Wild Clearing. See wildclearing.com for our work.

He stopped during it when we were old enought to take the belt out of his hand
He was not honorable, compassionate person to his flesh and blood
There was not one bit of encouragement or kind word or (would he go out of his way to help his flesh and blood) given to his flesh and blood by john f howell
