Now following Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, more than 6,000 of you have co-petitioned with us to call upon the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to "Freeze Our Fukushimas" and shutter dangerously old and deteriorating General Electric Mark I boiling water reactors here in the US similar in design to the Fukushima Dai-ichi units. There, nuclear accidents have closed 24 miles of Japan's coastline to human habitation and forced hundreds of thousands more Japanese to live in sickening radioactive contamination.
The NRC has scheduled a public hearing to take public comment on requested emergency enforcement actions to suspend operations at these increasingly dangerous Fukushima-style nuclear reactors. Speakers will include Paul Gunter and Kevin Kamps (Beyond Nuclear), Dale Bridenbaugh (former GE engineer), Arnie Gunderson (Fairewinds Associates), Debi Katz (Citizens Awareness Network), Lou Zeller (Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League), Randy Kehler (Safe & Green Campaign), Michael Mariotte (Nuclear Information and Resource Service), Bobbie Paul (Georgia WAND) and more...
Please mark your calendars and help us mobilize a national campaign to hasten the closure of the most dangerous atomic reactors in America. Invite your friends, colleagues and post on listserves.
Freeze Our Fukushimas!
