Sunday October 30: Rally at Vt. Yankee Gates

You’ve Been Served Rally @ The Gates
Sunday, October 30 · 12:00pm – 3:00pm
Gates of Vermont Yankee
546 Governor Hunt Rd, Vernon, VT
As the Entergy Corporation again prepares to feed the crumbling, stumbling VY reactor…5 months before the scheduled closure date of March 21, 2012, citizens will be there en masse to communicate one thing: Entergy, you’ve been served.

We will not allow this reactor to operate beyond its scheduled closure date. It is time to close up and clean up. Join us Sunday, October 30 at Noon to demonstrate loudly, clearly and peaceably.
Stay tuned for more details.

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.

The Vermont Yankee reactor must be closed and decommissioned. What will you do to make this happen?  June 25 in Wendell, MA, starting at 1:00 on the common and in town hall, we will gather to have fun: music, poetry, a potluck. And discussions (beginning around 2:30-3), using the affinity group/spokes structure.

Our goal is ongoing actions/events for the next 3 months. Focus: closing Vermont Yankee, supporting the court cases against Entergy, and keeping in the media the idea that Nuclear Power is not an option in solving our country’s need for energy. We will gather again in October to assess our next moves to assure the closing of the plant.
