Picnic at the Planet – Action on Aug 21

I am taking part in an event which could benefit very much from exposure to active New Hampshire citizens such as those who visit your website. Would you consider adding our event to your page? We will be picnicking and rallying at the Seabrook NH Nuclear Power plant on August 21st to bring awareness and opposition to the dangers of nuclear power as our energy source. We will be gathering at the plant’s North Gate starting at noon, then we will parade to its South Gate. Attached is a flyer with more information– If you could post the flyer or our event details we would be grateful– Let us know if this is possible, or whether you require any more information.

Clamshell Alliance 2011 Reunion

On July 23, 2011, thirty-eight anti-nuclear organizers met at World Fellowship in Conway NH to discuss resistance, particularly focused on the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant (VY) in Vernon on the Connecticut River at juncture of VT, NH & MA. These are notes from the meeting: those attending, commitments made by the end of the day, morning (large group) and afternoon (break out and large group) discussions. (Notes taken by Lynn Chong, Shel Horowitz, and Randy Kehler; organized by Sharon Tracy.)
