Boston Downwinders Working Group needs your ideas and support to assure a safe and healthy world for generations to come. Come hear the discussion on ‘Nuclear Urgencies: Pilgrim and Beyond’ on Saturday, February 2 from 2-4pm at the First Congregational Church (11 Garden St., Cambridge).
Pilgrim Nuclear Plant is closing this May, but it won’t close safely unless we stay active and alert. Federal and State Legislatures are pushing for the subsidization of failing nuclear plants. There is no place for endlessly accumulating nuclear waste, and Fukushima remains out of control. Local activists will fuel us with their steadfast efforts to counter these crises as we map out Boston Downwinders’ next action steps.
Speakers (in order of appearance):
- Diane Turco, Director, Cape Downwinders – CDW and Diane have been investigating, educating and agitating for the immediate closure of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant since the 1980’s.
- Deb Katz, Director, Citizens Awareness Network (aka Nukebusters) – Based in Western Massachusetts, Deb and CAN have been instrumental in the closure of four New England reactors—Yankee Rowe, CT Yankee, Millstone Unit 1 and Vermont Yankee.
- Guntram Mueller, Co-Convenor, Boston Downwinders – Guntram is working with State Rep. Ruth Balser to draft the “Fukushima Lessons Learned Public Health and Safety Act” to be filed in January.
