The US must ends its colloboration with Peabody Western Coal Company and stop the forced relocation. Thousands have been forced to relocate to the "New Lands", downstream from the largest nuclear spill in US history, contaminated when a dam burst, releasing over 100 million gallons of radioactive water into the Rio Puerco River. Today, the Justice Department continues their active role in forced relocation.
