NECONA's goals are :
  • to educate Indians and Non-Indians about the health dangers of radioactivity and the transportion of nuclear waste on America's rails and roads.
  • to network with Indian and Non-Indian environmentalists to develop grassroots counter-movement to the well-funded efforts of the nuclear industry.
  • to declare Tribal NUCLEAR FREE ZONES across the nation.
In response to efforts to place Nuclear Waste on Indian Lands, NECONA has been successful. Of the 17 tribes originally considering MRS sites, all but 3 have withdrawn.

The MRS (Monitored Retrievable Storage) is an ill-conceived program to "temporarily" store nuclear waste until a "permanent" site can be established at Yucca Mountain, NV. While problems with the permanent site cause long delays, the hosts o the "temporary" sites will be risking their land and the future of their children for generations.
