Parade & Rally to Mark One-Year of Illegal Operation & Waste by Entergy
Bread and Puppet Theater and the SAGE Alliance will join forces to mark one year of illegal operation by Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee. The state of Vermont’s original operating license for Yankee expired on March 21, 2012. In blatant defiance of Vermont state law and the will of the people, Entergy continues to operate Vermont Yankee; generating additional radioactive waste, polluting the Connecticut River with thermal waste, and barraging the state of Vermont with lawsuits. It has been one year of waste.
In further disregard to the people and the state of Vermont, Entergy is in the process of refueling the crumbling Vermont Yankee reactor for another 18 months of operation.
The people are not standing idly by. We will not let Entergy’s high-priced lawyers decide our energy future. The people will tip the scales.
People will gather at 3:30pm at the Harris Place parking lot (off Main Street; TD Bank is on the corner). The parade will go thru downtown Brattleboro, led by Bread & Puppet, with floats, banners and bands, to the Latchis Theatre (50 Main St.). Rally will begin in the main theatre at 4:30pm for a program of speakers, skits and music. Speakers include Sen. Jeanette White of Windham County, Deb Katz from Citizens Awareness Network, and Chris Williams, VT Citizens Action Network. The Vocal Chordz will lead a sing-a-long of “The Twelve Lies of Entergy.” The skit, penned by Chad Simmons of the Safe nd Green Campaign, will lampoon the four law firms hired by Entergy to defend the corporation from the people of Vermont.
People wanting to participate in the Bread & Puppet portion of the parade are urged to arrive at 2:30pm to rehearse. For directions to the Harris Place parking lot, go to: http://goo.gl/maps/9BPKI
