Anti-Northern States Power mug

Black-glazed earthenware mug created to promote the Mdewakanton Dakota community’s protest against Northern States Power (NSP) in 1991.  The side of the mug not pictured is screen-printed with a list of international, state and local organizations that supported said protest.  The side pictured displays the following message in twelve segments:

NSP doesn’t want you to hear this.  They’re quietly planning to store nuclear waste dangerously close to the banks of the Mississippi. Endangering the river.  Wildlife.  And you.  Don’t be silent.  We need your voice.  Tell the Public Utilities Commission to stop the storage now.

Sponsored by the Prairie Island Environmental Protection Committee and Banned on TV.
