3rd Annual International Rally to Protect the Great Lakes, Port Huron, MI, Sun., Aug. 20, 11am-5pm

Dear All,
I hope you can come, but if you cannot, please spread word to others who may be able to. And please be informed, and inspired, that the resistance to OPG's DGR continues in Michigan, after more than a decade and a half!

Jeremy Whitmore from the board of Great Lakes Environmental Alliance (GLEA) has invited me to come and speak about the ongoing resistance to Ontario Power Generation's proposed "Deep Geologic Repository" (DGR, or DUD-Deep Underground Dump) for radioactive waste, targeted at the Lake Huron shore, at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station in Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. Jeremy has also asked me to address additional radioactive waste storage and transportation risks impacting the Great Lakes, and to set up our Beyond Nuclear info. table. See the text of the GLEA flier below, as well as links to the flier itself in both PDF and JPG formats. The event will take place on the banks of the St. Clair River during the annual Port Huron Float Down event, just like the first annual Rally to Protect the Great Lakes in 2015. Please come if you can, spread the word if you can't, and help us nip the DUD in the bud in the months ahead!

And here is the link to the Facebook event page for the 3rd Annual International Rally to the Protect the Great Lakes in Port Huron, MI next Sunday.
