hkf's,


i don't think this has been posted yet, but it's from
the official site under news.  [...]
here's a lyric that starts one of the last verses to
jog the memory:


"i said i've been all the way to alaska
to a town they call point of hope"


there is a goddess...

"point hope f.o.i.a." by amy ray
amy ray talks below about "point hope" - a new track
that will be available for exclusive paid download
this week with all proceeds going to charity:
"i wrote pt.hope over the last few years as i was
thinking about the victims of the nuclear industry
cycle. on our 1995 honor tour we visited alaska and
supported an effort to bring more light to the
situation at a place called pt. hope. this is a place
where our government buried fallout material from a
bomb testing site in nevada in hopes of studying its
effects on the lichen-caribou-man foodchain. this
secret experiment was uncovered after the freedom of
information act forced the release of the records of
this crime.


"i thought about where the poisonous material
originated and all that had gone into bringing it to
alaska and its viscious man made journey which
sickened all who were touched by it. i read a haunting
article about an old indian woman who remembered
watching the nevada atomic bomb test as sort of an
intriguing family activity, unaware of the danger and
destruction to her land. i also read many testimonials
of cancer ridden miners who had brought the stuff up
from the earth. the nuclear industry has depended on a
lack of information and the exploitation of those that
have less money and power.


"now after years of sickness and environmental
catastrophies, the dangers of the uranium cycle are
becoming public knowledge. information is the power we
hold and we must not be intimidated by an industry
that has never held our health as a priority.


"we recorded this track live in august 2000. it was a
very moving experience because i think all of the
players got it. hope you enjoy the song.
aray."
