Coalition Against Nukes U.S.A. joins with Forward on Climate! to Bust the Nuclear Myth in Washington D.C.
The Coalition Against Nukes, as a partner in the Forward on Climate Rally, will be coming from across the United States to Bust the Nuclear Myth that nuclear energy is carbon free. "Nuclear has a huge carbon footprint from the mining and milling to the enrichment process and all the way through the fuel cycle," said Priscilla Star, executive director and founder of C.A.N.. At todays rally in Washington D.C.. we will be joining with our partners Beyond Nuclear, the Nuclear Information Resource Services, Friends of the Earth and the Green Party to march in unity and solidarity to demand POLITICAL CHANGE not CLIMATE CHANGE! and a Green New Deal for America that will be both Carbon and Nuclear Free! "This exploitive system controlled by giant energy companies does not have a place for the health of our planet our ourselves and this system must change," said Chris Williams, author of Ecology and Socialism. The Green Party's Jill Stein was the selected speaker of both the Coalition Against Nukes and the Green Party for this event but was denied a chance to speak on stage. She will be available for interviews in the VIP tent.
