FUKUSHIMA ANNIVERSARY UPDATE:
MANY NEW ACTIONS POSTED
AND A CALL FOR VERMONT YANKEE/GE MARK I SOLIDARITY ACTIONS MARCH 24
March 9, 2012
A very brief update. We have posted many new actions all across the U.S. on our Action page here. From Alabama to Wisconsin, New York to California, there is almost certainly one not too far from you.
We are still adding actions as we receive word about them. If an action in your area isn't listed, please send the info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Actions taking place after this weekend will be added early next week.
Don't forget to click the link for global actions at the top of our action page to see the amazing number of events happening this weekend all across the world!
We sent out a press advisory today to thousands of reporters across the world on anniversary actions. We encourage you to send it to your local media so they will realize the large number of events going on this weekend.
New England's SAGE Alliance has put out a call for actions across the country on March 24 to defend democracy and support the shutdown of Vermont Yankee and all GE Mark I reactors (and, for that matter, all reactors!). As you probably know, the Vermont legislature voted for permanent shutdown of Vermont Yankee on March 22. But legal wrangling from the Entergy Corporation will almost certainly delay that. Actions already have been set up for Vermont, Massachusetts and New York. We encourage all groups, and especially all groups near Mark I reactors, to set up a support action. For more information and to help coordinate, contact Kendra Ulrich of the Sage Alliance here.
Our movement is growing! Let's join together this weekend and beyond...
Thanks for all you do,
Nuclear Information and Resource Service
A reminder: if you're on Facebook, please vote here to send NIRS to Netroots Nation and help get our information out to the nation's largest conference of progressive bloggers and political activists. Deadline to vote is March 14.
Your contributions make our work--and the work of all anti-nuclear organizations--possible. This Fukushima anniversary weekend, please donate to NIRS here, or donate to the anti-nuclear organization nearest you (or both!). But please do help. NIRS, and all of the groups working hard across the country deeply appreciate your support and put it to the best use possible: building a nuclear-free, carbon-free future.
