10.30 MONROE, MI: All Species Mutant Rally to Halt Fermi 3

Are you aware that DTE wants to build another nuclear reactor in Monroe called Fermi 3?

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will be holding hearings on whether or not to build Fermi 3 on Devil's Night & Halloween, how appropriate...

We already have Fermi 2 (which is not functioning properly and has nearly melted down in the past). And, hello, did DTE and our government totally forget about the ongoing disaster at Fukushima? 

Fermi 3 would be an experimental, $20 billion health hazard. Plus, MI doesn't even need the energy it would provide! If you are against this failed technology, please come out and show your support.

WE NEED YOU! This is a critical time in their decision making process. The only thing holding them back from building this thing are the people's voices.

Put on a costume and join us for a Mutant Rally on Wednesday, Oct. 30th. Bring anti-nuclear signs and props. Themes: We are being irradiated by nuclear energy & Fermi 3 is a terrible idea. The more green ooze (aka radioactive waste) you can incorporate into your outfit, the better. Two-headed dandelions, fish, baby dolls, etc. are also very appropriate. ...Radiation is scary.

Coffee & pastries will be provided for those who would like to sit in on the hearings on the 30th & 31st from 8:30-9:20 am before the hearings begin at 9:30 am.

Mutant Rally on Wed., the 30th at 4 pm. That's when we'll need your support to show DTE, NRC, and our government: Fermi 3 is a gamble we can't afford.

Eighteen months after the nuclear meltdown, children in Fukushima suffer from severe nosebleeds and are developing skin rashes and thyroid cysts. Citing a lack of transparency in the official medical testing of their children and the ineffectiveness of the decontamination of their homes and schools, the children's mothers take radiation monitoring into their own hands.

The promise of jobs from a proposed uranium mill has an economically devastated mining community in Colorado hopeful for the first time in decades. When environmentalists step in to stop the mill, pro-mill advocates are enraged. A debate ensues, pitting jobs against health and the environment. Without judgment, both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching detail as the film follows conflicting visions for the future. The film offers no easy answers but aims instead to capture personal stories and paint a social portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue.

Meet Atsuko Watanabe in Berkeley, CA, once-only chance Wed Oct 16th

The Opening, A Center for Courses in Writing
in conjunction with

Far Leaves Tea, Raise the Root Cooking Collective, and Stone Bridge Press

An Evening with Atsuko Watanabe
and author of A Different Kind of Luxury,  Andy Couturier
Wednesday October 16th, 7-9:30 PM
A fundraiser for Fukushima children
Far Leaves Tea,  2626 San Pablo Ave 
Berkeley, CA 94702

Come join us for a warm evening with Japanese environmentalist and anti-nuclear activist Atsuko Watanabe, profiled in Chapter 3 of A Different Kind of Luxury: Japanese Lessons in Simple Living and Inner Abundance.

This is a once-only opportunity to meet and ask questions of this pioneering activist, organic gardener and zero-waste crusader, and key collaborator in the production of this book. Ms. Watanabe will be leading a delegation of environmentalists from the village of Kamikatsu in Shikoku island, the first Zero Waste village in Japan.  Since making this declaration a decade ago, Kamikatsu has become nationally known and a destination for people studying how to reduce their garbage.  (You can read an article about Kamikatsu by the BBC here )

Ms. Watanabe will be coming to Northern California on a research tour to visit recycling, waste recovery, solar energy and natural building sites.  As part of this tour we would like to offer fans of A Different Kind of Luxury the chance to meet her, ask questions and engage in discussion with her and other people in her delegation.  We will start with a short slide presentation by author Andy Couturier, who spent four years researching and 15 years writing this book.

The event will be held as fundraiser to bring children from the stricken Fukushima region to the much less toxic area of Kamikatsu--400 miles to the west--where their bodies can have a chance to heal and recover somewhat. The project is being facilitated by the village of Kamikatsu, where Ms. Watanabe is a town councilor. They are arranging to bring children out of the irradiated zone and house them for a short time in the village.  We request a donation of $20 or more at the door.  Please consider being as generous as you can afford. 

As part of the evening, we will provide organic tea from Kamikatsu, Awa Bancha, a rare rustic tea produced with a 'lacto-fermentation' method unique to this one small region of Japan.

We will also be serving some delicious appetizers made from seasonal, organic & locally-sourced ingredients provided by Raise the Root Cooking Collective.  Raise the Root is a group of culinary educators that use food as a springboard to cultivate community & inspire conversation.

LOCATION:  2626 San Pablo Ave  
Berkeley, CA 94702
(510) 665-9409 


Ms. Watanabe has not left Japan in more than 10 years, and many of the other people profiled in the book rarely leave their villages.  This is really a one time only opportunity.

Please Join us for a day of recognition: Radioactive contamination from Fukushima threatens life everywhere... And it will for generations to come. 

The nuclear reactors that exploded in Japan pose a terrible problem: to keep the escaped corium from bursting into uncontrollable fire or bigger explosions, incredible amounts of water must be poured into a damaged and very radioactive site. The plant has always had a problem mitigating heavy groundwater seepage; now it's swamped with highly contaminated water from both sources, making the ground that supports the site soggy and unstable. 

This nuclear emergency is not over. 

The world is a round planet and the nuclear fires burning in these destroyed reactors will not be extinguished for centuries. Dangerous levels of radioactive contamination have leaked into the Pacific Ocean, into our rain, into our food chain, into the very fabric of our DNA gene pool, every day for two and a half years. 

We have seriously fouled our nest, folks, and it's time to start talking about it. 

We are all connected by bodies of water and we are mostly made up of water. We have one globally connected ocean and each of us has one body. All life was born in this ocean. It needs our help now, to tell others what we know. 

One ocean, One chance. 

Fukushima is Here.


Our Coalition to Decommission San Onofre can now proudly announce that nationally-regarded nuclear experts Dr. Marvin Resnikoff and Dr. Arjun Makhijani have confirmed they will be joining us for the October 19 symposium at the Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley, 1201 Puerta Del Sol, Suite 100, San Clemente, California 92673.Registration will start at 12 noon and the program will begin at 12:30 PM...

San Onofre Nuclear Waste Symposium Appeal | Sierra Club - Angeles Chapter

In June, civic and environmental activists won a big victory in shutting down the San Onofre nuclear plant. It may seem that all is now quiet in San Onofre land – but it is not. Our Coalition to Decommission San Onofre has been startled by the huge challenge in dealing with radioactive nuclear waste at the plant. The issues include: unusually potent forms of fuel, dense storage of spent fuel far beyond design limits, large uncertainties about where the waste will ultimately be stored and for how long, and last but not least, the economics of decommissioning. These issues were below the radar during the shutdown debate but now they loom large.
We are organizing a symposium for October featuring Dr. Arjun Makhijani PhD and Dr. Marvin Resnikoff Ph.D both national experts on the key issues, with plenty of time for questions to panelists and group discussion. Our immediate goal is to assure that best practices will be applied to minimize the risk for those who must live with San Onofre as a nuclear waste dump. Our ultimate goal is to reinvigorate the national discussion about what to do with America’s radioactive nuclear waste.
Our event will be Oct 19, 2013, but we need your help today to make sure this important symposium comes to life...

そして東電は福島の事故を収束できないまま,2007年の新潟県中越沖地震で火災を出した柏崎刈羽原発の再稼動審査を申請しました。それも福島第一と同じ型(沸騰水型軽水炉)です。敷地内には多くの断層が確認されています。事故の真相もまだ解明できず,事故を出しその事故を収束できない会社が何で次の原発を動かせるのでしょうか? 申請すること自体が狂っています。それを許す回りも狂っています。正気のわたし達は再稼動を絶対許してはいけません。


わたしたちは、政府に対し原発産業に対し、再稼動は絶対許さない,子供達を今すぐ安全な場所に疎開させて欲しい,福島の人達に充分な損害賠償をして欲しい、事故の収束に全力を挙げて欲しいと、その意志を表明する必要があると思いませんか? 誰かが、そうしてくれているから、しなくても良いと思っていては,事態は好転しません。この狂った原発崇高の流れを止める事はできません。一人でも多くの人が自分で立ち上がらなければ,手遅れになります。11日集会に結集しましょう!

Former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission joins panel to discuss the risks of nuclear power at the Indian Point and Pilgrim Nuclear Power Stations





Seminar - Tuesday, Oct. 8 in NYC | Wednesday, Oct. 9 in Boston

NEW YORK (Sept. 30, 2013)—A panel of speakers that includes the former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Dr. Gregory Jaczko; former NRC Commissioner Peter Bradford; and nuclear engineer, Arnie Gundersen, is scheduled to share their perspectives on nuclear safety and the future of nuclear power. The panel will specifically address concerns regarding Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant now operating with an expired license in Buchanan, New York and Pilgrim Nuclear Generating Station in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The seminars will be held in New York City on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and in Boston on Wednesday, Oct. 9. More speakers will be announced.

Jaczko was the Chairman of the NRC during the earthquake and tsunami that triggered the catastrophe at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan. He was confronted by three reactor meltdowns and a nuclear crisis that persists to this day. In 2012, Jaczko cast the lone dissenting vote on plans to build the first new nuclear power plant in the U.S. in more than 30 years.

Earlier this year on June 4, 2013, Jaczko, Bradford and Gunderson were joined by Japan’s former Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, where they spoke at the San Diego County Administrative Center about their concerns regarding the safety of the San Onofre nuclear power plant. Three days after the panel, the plant was closed permanently.

U.S. citizens are now questioning the safety of the Indian Point and Pilgrim nuclear power plants. In the event of a catastrophe like Fukushima, these plants would threaten millions. A nuclear disaster at Indian Point would threaten the entire population of New York City and the outlying metropolitan area. A crisis at Pilgrim poses similar danger to millions in and surrounding Boston.

The panel discussion is open to the public and news media.

For media and the public who are unable to attend, the New York and Boston panel can be heard on a live feed at, these webcasts will be archived at the link for at least 30 days once live.

New York Event

Who/What: The panel, The Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Accident: Lessons for New York, will include former NRC Chair Gregory Jaczko, who led the commission during the Fukushima-Daiichi  accident, along with former NRC Commissioner Peter Bradford, and nuclear engineer Arnie Gunderson. More speakers to be announced.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 8, 9:00am – 1:00pm

Where: 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10128 (Theresa L. Kaufmann Concert Hall)

Why: Indian Point is a three-unit nuclear power station located in Buchanan, New York, 25 miles outside New York City. Potential risk of a nuclear crisis at Indian Point would pose a danger to millions in the New York area. The technology at the plant is 40 years old, and the containment domes were not designed to hold 100 tons of melting uranium in event of an accident and meltdown. Both Chernobyl and Fukushima are examples of accidents in outdated nuclear reactors.

Boston Event

Who/What: The panel, The Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Accident: Lessons for Boston, will include former NRC Chair Gregory Jaczko, who led the commission during the Fukushima-Daiichi accident, along with former NRC Commissioner Peter Bradford, and nuclear engineer Arnie Gunderson. More speakers to be announced.

When: Wednesday, Oct. 9, 9:00am – 1:00pm

Where: Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02133 (Gardner Auditorium)

Why: The Pilgrim Nuclear Generating Station is located in Plymouth, MA, 40 miles outside Boston. Last summer, Jaczko and the community presented legal appeals and environmental warnings to shut down Pilgrim, however, the NRC renewed the 40-year-old nuclear plant’s license for another 20 years despite these oppositions. A nuclear crisis at Pilgrim would pose a danger to millions of people who live within 50 miles of Pilgrim, including those in the city of Boston.

10.5 DEARBORN MI - Know Nukes 101: An Activist Mobilzation Conference | Alliance to Halt Fermi 3

Held on the 47th Anniversary of Fermi 1 Meltdown in Monroe, MI…

How many of you are aware that DTE wants to build a new nuclear power plant, Fermi 3, next to Fermi 2 and Fermi 1 about 40 miles from Detroit?

We have experienced meltdowns at Fermi 1 (1966, 1 reactor), Three Mile Island (1979, 1 reactor), Chernobyl (1986, 1 reactor) and Fukushima (2011, 3 reactors), we should better understand just how dangerous they are. How much more can our planet take?


Keynote Speaker Paul Gunter, Director of Beyond Nuclear’s Reactor Watchdog Project and nationally known reactor safety specialist, speaking on Fukushima, Chernobyl and radioactive isotopes in food and water.
We’ll have a discussion panel afterwards followed by breakout sessions.

Todos Somos Japon will present two films from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Zone.
Women of Fukushima
(2012, Japan, Produced by Paul Johannessen, Jeffrey Jousan and Ivan Kovac)
Six Japanese women offer brutally honest views on the state of the clean-up, the cover-ups and untruths since the nuclear accident in Fukushima, and how it has affected their lives, homes and families. The film has been presented at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and recently won the Best Short Documentary at the Social Impact Media Awards, as well as Best Mid-length film at the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival in New Zealand.

Alone in the Zone
(2013, Japan, Produced by Paul Johannessen, Jeffrey Jousan and Ivan Kovac)
The earthquake in March 2011 caused one of the most serious nuclear disasters in world history, when the Fukushima Daiichi power plant started leaking radiation. The surrounding towns were evacuated in a rush, leaving empty homes, silent streets, and uncared-for animals. In the small town of Tomioka, however, less than six miles away from the Fukushima Daiichi plant, one man refused to leave: Naoto Matsumura, a 53-year-old fifth-generation rice farmer who is surely the most stubborn man in Japan, if not the world.

At 12:00 am on 9/28/13, Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant Unit 2 (IP2) becomes the first and only nuclear reactor in the United States to operate with an expired license. We, the Stony Point Convergence on Indian Point, are organizing a joint-paddling, biking and walking/running convergence on the Peekskill Riverfront Green on Saturday, September 28th to call public attention to the continued operation of IP2 despite its current license expiring on that same day. In addition, we will be vigiling at 6 locations within 10 miles of the Power Plant. We need you to hop on your bike, stretch your legs, grab your paddles or dig your boots into the concrete and join us!

Roughly our start times are:

Bikers: gather at Indian Point Old Gate at 10:30am, bike 7 mile route to Peekskill Riverfront Green (PRG).

Walkers/Runners: gather at Indian Point Old Gate at 11:00am, walk/run 2.3 miles to PRG.

Kayakers: gather at Annesville Circle at 10:30am and paddle out to Indian Point before landing at PRG at 12:30pm

Vigilers: meet at one of six locations (Cold Spring @ Little Stony Point, Annesville Circle in Cortlandt, Peekskill Gazebo - Division Street and South Street, Yorktown Heights Rt. 202 and 35, Croton-Harmon Trainstation and Ossining Farmers' Market - see maps below) at 10:30am, vigil until noon and drive/walk/take train to PRG to arrive there at 12:30pm.

Peekskill Riverfront Green: convergence of vigilers, bikers, walkers/runners and paddlers at 12:30pm with music, food (most-likely potluck and bbq), and a megaphone for people to speak.

This is all in process, so give us recommendations, too!

Two and a half years after the initial Fukushima explosions of March 12 and 13, 2011, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, Japan's largest utility, is finally admitting that from the very inception of the accident, at least 30 trillion Becquerels have been allowed to flow into the Pacific, where sea life showing signs of radiation disease is washing up on the shores of Vancouver, Oregon, and Los Angeles. Here to talk about it is Cecile Pineda, whose book, "Devil's Tango: How I learned the Fukushima Step by Step," published on Fukushima's first anniversary, forsees much of what we are beginning to learn now.

The NRC will hold a public meeting to discuss the decommissioning process for all nuke waste plants, including our very own San Onofre Nuclear Waste Generating Station.

The meeting will be held September 26 at the Omni La Costa Hotel, 2100 Costa del Mar Road, in Carlsbad, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors will open at 5 p.m. to allow extra time for security screening.

Please plan on attending, Let the NRC know you do not want a nuclear waste dump on a fault line, in a tsunami hazard zone, right in our backyard, for the next 300 years.

    Please spread the news, there are some places left for participants. Thank you!

    EU Kommission: Temelin Neubau mit Staatsgarantien
    Wirtschaftsminister Rösler für Tschechisches Energiekonzept mit fünf Reaktoren
    Marktredwitz, 23. Juli 2013.
    Während die EU Kommission für den Temelin Neubau mit Staatsgarantien plädiert, unterstützt Wirtschaftsminister Rösler das Tschechische Energiekonzept mit fünf neuen Atomreaktoren. DIE GRÜNEN im Fichtelgebirge sind Veranstalter  der 3. Internationalen Konferenz  STOPPT TEMELIN vom 14. bis 15. September 2013 in Temelin/ Hluboka (Tschechien) mit Teilnehmern aus Tschechien, Österreich, der Slowakei, Deutschland und Polen. Die Organisatorin Brigitte Artmann sagt: „Selbst die HSBC schätzt den Bau eines Reaktors auf unwirtschaftliche 8 Milliarden Euro Minimum. Atomlobbyismus in Brüssel hat bereits die gefährliche Sschweißnahtsituation in Temelin Reaktor 1 verschuldet. Bereits im Jahre 2001 wandte sich Greenpeace damit an den ehemaligen EU Kommissar Günther Verheugen. Dieser attestierte: Temelin ist sicher. Dabei sind bis heute elementarste Fragen zur Schweißnaht 1-4-5 im Unklaren. Der tschechische Umweltminister Tomas Podivinsky, der deutsche Umweltminister Peter Altmaier und Österreichs Umweltminister Nikolaus Berlakovich weigern sich die bestehende Aktenlage 15/2001/SUJB trilateral auf Vollständigkeit zu überprüfen. Jan Haverkamp von Greenpeace wird über den neuesten Stand berichten“. Auf der Agenda der Konferenz steht weiter die Bildung von Klageallianzen aus Deutschland, Tschechien und Österreich gegen die zu erwartende Baugenehmigung der beiden neuen Temelin Blöcke. Sowohl die deutsche Bundesregierung als auch die bayerische Staatsregierung lehnen es ab im Namen der Öffentlichkeit und deren Sicherheit Klage zu führen. Bereits am Samstagvormittag wird die Maschinenhalle im Hochsicherheitstrakt des AKW inspiziert. Danach ist Start der „1000 Kraniche  gegen Atomenergie“. 50 dieser Tiere werden symbolisch um Temelin fliegen. Alle anderen starten bereits am 7. September 2013 um 12:00 in verschiedenen Orten in Deutschland und auch am geplanten AKW in Lubiatowo in Polen. Man kann sich an dieser Aktion noch beteiligen.

    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will give a speech on his economic policy, dubbed “Abenomics,” on Wall Street when he visits New York in late September for the U.N. General Assembly.

    9.18 UK: WITCH WATCH FULL MOON VIGIL | Stop Hinkley

    Witch Watch is a 24hour vigil - sometimes longer - held on the night of the Full Moon when she is still waxing. WW evolved to defend Mother Earth as part of the Stop Hinkley C campaign and the proposed new build of nuclear power stations in Britain.

    The camp glimmers in the hedgerow of the last lay-by, on the main road into the power station, near Bridgwater, Somerset. All are welcome to join us but the camp is women only after daylight hours.
    WW provides a meeting place to make connection, share information and to bring your magic. A Sacred Fire is lit and tended through the night.

    Witch Watch bears on-site witness and observation of the destruction and construction that is taking place, and holds a positive intention for a different future and the need for balance in the world.

    8.20 PHOENIX - Protest Against Canyon Uranium Mine *** CANCELLED ***

    *** CANCELLED ***

    via MamaBears AgainstNukes -
    Dear all,
    Unfortunately, the judge in this case has decided to rule on the injunction against the Canyon uranium mine WITHOUT a public hearing. The court hearing in Phoenix on Tuesday, Aug. 20 has
    been canceled!! JUDGE CAMPBELL WILL RULE ON THE WRITTEN DOCUMENTS ALONE, WITHOUT HEARING THE ORAL ARGUMENTS. Please note that we are also canceling the DEMO, since nothing is happening in Phoenix that day. Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who supported the organizing of this event! We do not know when he will issue his ruling. We will keep you posted on developments!

    ---[WAS]--- Protest in Phoenix at the Federal Courthouse to Temporarily Stop the Canyon Uranium Mine! Kaibab National Forest Supervisor Mike Williams illegally allowed Canada-based Energy Fuels to begin digging a uranium mine 15 miles south of the Grand Canyon with no review whatsoever of the 27-year-old Environmental Impact Statement, despite volumes and volumes of new evidence that so-called "low level" radiation from uranium KILLS!

    Mike Williams also ignored regulations in the National EnvironmentalProtection Act (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), requiring them to consult with tribes when a sacred area, a traditional cultural property, has been designated, as at Red Butte, and they are ignoring new evidence that the uranium mine will inevitably contaminate the massive aquifer that feeds the Colorado River and its many springs. NEW EVIDENCE PROVES that Radioactive uranium causes cancers, birth defects and DNA mutations. Once released into the environment it goes on radiating whatever it gets into for billions of years - in other words: FOREVER! 

    The aquifers on the Navajo Reservation, and creeks within the Grand Canyon National Park, have already been poisoned by past uranium mining. NO MORE! The Colorado River is the lifeblood of the West. The federal court in the person of Judge Campbell will hear oral arguments for an injunction to stop the uranium mine, being brought by the Havasupai Tribe, the Grand Canyon trust, the Sierra Club, and the Center for Biological Diversity. PLEASE SHARE THIS EVENT WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

    Join us at the ARC Bar on 6th August for an evening of talks, film clips and discussion on security in the nuclear age, with topics ranging from the impact of Trident on the economy and climate change, the links between civil and military nuclear industries, the costs of nuclear new build, the UK/French connection and the breaking of the non-proliferation treaty, and radioactive warfare in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
    Location: Santa Monica Civic Center, at the 26-foot-tall nuclear mushroom cloud “Chain Reaction” peace sculpture, 1800 block of Main Street just north of Pico Blvd
    A public candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday, August 6 to remember the victims of the August 6, 1945 bombing of Hiroshima and to support efforts leading to a nuclear weapons-free world.
    The vigil will include speakers from PSR-Los Angeles and other peace organizations who are concerned about the worldwide danger that exists from nuclear weapons. Also speaking will be community activists with Save Chain Reaction, who are working to save and restore the threatened ‘Chain Reaction’ warning monument that was designed, created and gifted to Santa Monica by late 3-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Paul Conrad. The sculpture has been standing in the Civic Center since 1991, and last year was designated as a Santa Monica landmark by the Santa Monica Landmarks Commission.
    The event is being sponsored by PSR-Los Angeles and Save Chain Reaction. For further information call 310-399-1000 or email Jerry Rubin.

    8.9 SYDNEY: 'Nuclear Nation' film screening - ANFA fundraiser

    Nuclear Nation is a documentary about the exile of Futaba’s residents, the region housing the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Since the 1960s, Futaba had been promised prosperity with tax breaks and major subsidies to compensate for the presence of the power plant. The town’s people have now lost their homeland. Through their agonies and frustrations, the film questions the real cost of capitalism and nuclear energy.

    The screening is a fundraising event for the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance, and all funds raised will support Aboriginal communities on the frontline of nuclear projects to attend the annual ANFA national meeting in October. More info at

    This screening is being held in Sydney on Nagasaki Day-Friday August 9- and is part of a series of events to commemorate the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    6.24 WEBINAR: Pull the #Plutonium Pork – End #MOX!

    Monday, June 24, 3pm (ET):
    Pull the Plutonium Pork – End MOX
    (Co-hosted with Georgia WAND)
    Developing a disposition method for plutonium from dismantled U.S. nuclear weapons is important, but the Department of Energy’s current plan to make experimental fuel with this weapons’ plutonium is costly, dangerous and on the verge of collapse. It’s also siphoning dollars away from other nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear weapons cleanup priorities. Please join us to learn about the Mixed Oxide Plutonium Fuel Program (MOX) and what can be done to keep this failing program from gobbling more dollars while increasing nuclear dangers.  We’ll also consider what alternatives need to be developed to deal with plutonium from nuclear weapons.   Tom Clements, Southeastern Nuclear Campaign Coordinator for Friends of the Earth andKatherine Fuchs, Program Director of the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability will tell us how to pull the plutonium pork and develop needed solutions.  Cohost, Georgia WAND will also discuss the regional impacts of MOX.
    “Pull the Plutonium Pork – End MOX” is part of WAND’s Nuclear Budget Webinar Series looking at specific nuclear weapons programs in particular need of Congressional budget cutting scrutiny.  Last month we started with: "Is it time to boot the B61 nuclear bomb?"
