Add comment on:"Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Wake UP" say Demonstrators in front of USGS
Mei Bo Chan
Demonstrators chose the Menlo Park, CA U.S. Geological Survey site as a choice protest spot in front of the federal facility today. They said they were not protesting the USGS and that they respect the scientific research produced by the scientists there. Their message was for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The Raging Grannies, an anti-war and environmental activist group, led the protest. They said that the NRC has been rubber-stamping licenses for nuclear reactors and granting extensions and exceptions to their owners without enough regard for the public's safety. An industry news site says that the NRC will check the seismic risk of 27 nuclear units first. California's reactors are NOT on that list.
