Let's tell the candidates that we’re worried about climate change, and we want to know what they are going to do about it.

Rally for a Nuke-Free World in NYC and across the US

October 1, 2011
New York City, New York

Time: Noon to 3:30 pm
Pier 95 Hudson River Park, 12th Ave @ West 55th Street

The Coalition Against Nukes National Day of Action flagship rally will be in NYC Saturday, October 1, 2011. Former PSR leader Dr. Helen Caldicott will speak at the rally.

The Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns inspired this grassroots action. It was intensified by the August 23 magnitude 5.8 earthquake that caused two reactors at Virginia’s North Anna nuclear plant to shut down. Twelve reactors up and down the eastern US reported "unusual events" to the NRC.

Then, on August 28, Hurricane Irene demonstrated powerfully that electrical power and transportation routes can be disrupted over a very large area-for days and weeks. 

In New York, Entergy’s aging, leaky, 40-year old Indian Point nuclear reactors, with uncorrected safety concerns yet under consideration for additional 20-year relicensing by the Obama Administration, are located near 2 fault lines, just north of NYC in a very densely-populated area. Twenty million people live within 50 miles of Indian Point in NY, New Jersey and Connecticut. 

Co-sponsored by PSR New York City.
