POWER STRUGGLE is also a warning about the toxic legacy of high-level radioactive waste that will remain at every nuclear power plant around the world indefinitely into the future. We need your help to protect our future.
The film’s director, Robbie Leppzer, will be present, along with a panel of key players in the struggle to close Pilgrim:
a) Former Governor Michael Dukakis, a staunch advocate for safety regulation at Pilgrim and Seabrook.
b) State Rep. Ruth Balser (D-Newton), who plans to introduce a bill strengthening nuclear emergency planning.
c) Deb Katz Executive Director of Citizens Awareness Network, a grassroots environmental organization instrumental in the closure of 4 New England reactors— including Vermont Yankee.
d) Diane Turco, Director of Cape Downwinders, which has been leading the decades-long struggle to close Pilgrim.
We will ask for a $10 donation at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Better still, you may secure your ticket ahead of time.
Remember: Entergy’s decision to close Pilgrim in 2019 is only a business move, not a public safety requirement. The NRC issued license is open until 2032 so the closing date could be delayed by a move of financial support from President Trump or the State of Massachusetts. Even when closed, Pilgrim will require our vigilance through 60 years of decommissioning.
Don’t Stop Being Alarmed!
