VY unplugged – Party for a Nuclear Free New Year!

Dear Friends of the Safe and Green Campaign,

It’s the first day without nuclear power being generated in Vermont! At 12:12 pm on 12.29.14 the last atom was smashed at Vermont Yankee, and the last bit of radioactive waste was created. Yes, it really happened. (If you missed it, we’ve posted some news coverage here.)

This Saturday, CAN and Safe & Green are taking a night to acknowledge it, to refresh ourselves for the work ahead to safe guard our land, air, water and beings we love.

Yankee Un-Plugged

Party for a Nuclear Free New Year!

7:30pm Saturday January 3rd

St. James Church, 8 Church St., Greenfield, MA 7:30-11pm ~ $5-$20 donation.

* Schmooze with old friends in the quiet Activist Alcove, where folks will be tabling.

* Dance your joy with sound by Klondike and a special no nukes light show by Harvey Schaktman. World fusion dance band SIMBA was formed 25 years ago to play on the Brattleboro Common to shut down Vermont Yankee. The group called itself “The No Nukes Band” and tho they changed the name, their message remains the same. JOHN SHELDON rocked us out at the People’s Power Party in November, and he had such a blast he’s bringing his whole band along.

* Lionel Delevingne has made a generous gift of fifty books (!!!) to help defray party expenses. Visit Anna Gyorgy, who penned the introduction, in the Activist Alcove, and for a minimum donation of $10, you can take home To The Village Square: From Montegue to Fukushima (and help the party break even).

* The Raging Grannies will sing some truth to power.

* Greenfield’s own People’s Pint tasty brews.

* Pot luck desserts & snacks from you!

* Activists from near and far are coming to celebrate & get inspired: Diane Turco & friends from Cape Downwinders – fighting Entergy at the Pilgrim reactor in Plymouth, MA; Leona Morgan of Dine No Nukes (abandoned uranium mines); Yuko Tonohiro, with messages from Japan; Paul Gunter & Kevin Kamps from Beyond Nuclear; Tim Judson from NIRS.

* Memorabilia: Tee Shirts, Lawn Signs, Bumper Stickers and Banners.
