DON'T FRACK / NUKE OUR MOTHER EARTH
Join the coming together of two
great clean energy movements!
David Braun of CALIFORNIANS AGAINST FRACKING, Linda Seeley and Harvey Wasserman of the movement to SHUT DIABLO CANYON, (California's last two reactors), will join together to facilitate a union of these two great campaigns. This unique, pathbreaking collaboration will allow us to join forces and free our state of its addiction to technologies that destroy our water supply and threaten us all. The movements for No Nukes and an end to fracking have run parallel for many years. They've been especially critical in California, where we're threatened by a Diablo Canyon complex ringed by earthquake faults and a fracking industry that's destroying our water supply. Citizen activism has closed the reactors at Humboldt, Rancho Seco and San Onofre, and stopped proposed projects at Bakersfield, Bodega and elsewhere. PG&E's Diablo is two 1200+ megawatt monsters surrounded by earthquake faults, in a tsunami zone, out of compliance with clean water and fire safety regulations, lacking a credible evacuation plan and now completely priced out of the market by clean, cheap, safe and job-producing renewable energy. Anti-Fracking activists have had big successes in places like San Benito County and Los Angeles in CA, and in many jurisdictions across the nation using Community Rights Ordinances, and other strategies and campaigns.
Now these two great movements come together. On June 2nd, the Occupy Forum will host an activist gathering of frack and nuke activists to jointly plot strategy for getting to a green-powered California. . ..and Earth. DAVID BRAUN has campaigned throughout the US for an end to fracking, with a great and growing focus on the problem in California. LINDA SEELEY is a founding member of the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, a 40-year-old citizens group that intervened against the Diablo nukes way back in the 1960s. HARVEY WASSERMAN helped coin the phrase "No Nukes" in 1973 and was arrested at Diablo in 1984. He writes and speaks worldwide on a safe "Solartopian" future.
This coming-together is a unique and powerful event. Be a part of it!!!!
