A Watertown group will host a community forum on ending use of nuclear power on April 12.
Watertown Citizens for Peace Justice and the Environment sent out the following announcement:
Please join Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment (watertowncitizens.org) for a very special community forum, “Working for Nuclear Free World: From Plymouth to Planet Earth” on Sunday, April 12 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Grace Vision Church, 80 Mt. Auburn Street, Watertown (#71 Bus from Harvard Square).
The program will feature, Diane Turco from Cape Downwinders and Dr. Joseph Gerson, from Peace and Planet Mobilization for a Nuclear-Free, Peaceful, Just and Environmentally Sustainable World.
Ms. Turco will discuss the dangers posed by the Pilgrim nuclear power plant. Pilgrim is the same failed GE Mark I design as the 4 reactors destroyed at Fukushima. We should remember that U.S. citizens within 50 miles of Fukushima were told to evacuate. Boston is only 35 miles from Plymouth.
Dr. Gerson will address the ever-present danger of nuclear proliferation and the efforts of the United Nation’s Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to curtail the danger at its meetings on April 27. He will focus on the important contribution we can make to this effort by participating in the per-conference activities in NYC April 24 – 27.
