With Harvey "No Nukes" Wasserman and Eco-philosopher and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy, music, poetry, film clips, refreshments, book signing. Joanna will discuss awareness of our fears surrounding the huge danger to California's citizens and economy so we can rise up and take action. Harvey will speak about the current situation at Diablo Canyon and initiatives afoot to shut the plant asap, including a PG&E boycott. The emergency in a nutshell: a senior inspector blew the whistle on the NRC last month saying he recommended shutting it LAST YEAR due to twice the number of active earthquake faults, the inability of the plant to withstand an earthquake, and no sane emergency plan. Billions of gallons of water are used daily to cool the plant; the toxic spent water is spewed back into the ocean killing marine life for hundreds of miles. We don't have a plan to deal with the radioactive waste, we don't want a Fukushima in California. Nuclear accounts for 15% of the 40% excess power generated in California; we don't need nuclear and its associated dangers and toxic waste.PG&E, a private corporation running the unsafe plant, wants the plant license renewed, but the people of California want it shut down. Tonight we launch a ratepayer boycott of PG&E; customers will pledge to route their payments to an escrow account until Diablo is closed.
