Annual Clamshell Reunion
Posted (Diane Clancy) on 13-07-2012

The main focus on the 2012 Annual Clamshell Reunion is will be the joining together of several anti-nuclear groups to strategize how to be most effective and work together. There will be groups from several communities fighting against Entergy as well as other reactors. Strategizing is not something that comes natural to us, and involves much more than short brainstorms, followed by prioritizing. Our long-time collaborator, Nelia Sargent, has gathered together vital information on new tools for nonviolent strategic planning that are guiding multiple nonviolent revolutions blazing around the world.

What would be great is for people who are planning to come to the Clamshell Reunion (July 20-22) to read about these tools, so that we can utilize them that weekend. The material is adapted from military strategic planning by Col. Robert Helvey and Gene Sharp, and it presents a new power potential in strategic nonviolent resistance. Please follow this link: Nonviolent Strategic Planning to read Nelia’s description and go further into the chapters that are posted on this website. If you haven’t signed up for the reunion, you can still do so at: https://www.worldfellowship.org/

Big Rat – Entergy at Pilgrim
Posted (Diane Clancy) on 19-06-2012

Entergy (also the owner at Vermont Yankee nuke that is currently operating without a license) at the Pilgrim Nuke has locked out the workers for not accepting a terrible contract. The workers (ok, scabs) who have been called in from around the country to cross the picket lines and do the union workers jobs, have their own issues too. They were brought in, but they have gone public with not knowing how to run the equipment at this particular nuke. And Entergy expects to TRUST them that they are keeping us safe and that they have the PUBLIC good at heart? Come on!!!

Entergy Rat

Entergy is a Rat – to the workers and to the public!!

Occupy – Nuclear Power
Posted (Diane Clancy) on 13-01-2012

NUCLEAR POWER: AN IDEA WHOSE TIME IS OVER

Occupy is protesting the inequities that come from socializing risk onto the 99% and privatizing profits for the 1%. The collapse of housing and financial markets is a good example.

Nuclear power is another case of how the public pays for energy choices that favor corporate profits and control. Public dollars concentrate profits to nuclear corporations, warping energy choices to support centralized, capital intensive electric generation. Decentralized renewables and energy efficiency lose out. Read the rest of this entry »
