Rally to Close VT Yankee and Support Vermont

Rally to Close VT Yankee and Support Vermont

Saturday, April 14, 2012 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Please join us for a rally to support the democratic will of the people and elected officials of Vermont to shut down Vermont Yankee rather than permit it to operate beyond its original 40-year license.

Keynote speaker: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with Special Musical Guests (including the 12-piece Afro-beat ensemble, Fenebo).

The rally will.

. Acknowledge the State's tireless work to replace Vermont Yankee with sustainable energy solutions and prevent further radioactive contamination of the soil, air, and water surrounding the reactor.

. Support Vermont's resolve to stand up to the Entergy Corporation's arrogance and intimidation.

. Recognize the impact of Vermont Yankee on neighboring states and the support of their people and elected officials in closing Vermont Yankee.

. Demand that Entergy immediately shutter Vermont Yankee and begin a thorough, responsible decommissioning of the reactor and clean-up of the site.


Rally sponsors include: Citizens Awareness Network, Safe & Green Campaign, Vermont Public Interest Research Group, Nuclear Free Vermont, Vermont Yankee Decommissioning Alliance, SAGE Alliance, Safe Power Vermont, New England Coalition, Vermont Toxics Action Center, Vermont Sierra Club, Vermont Citizen Action Network.

In event of rain, the rally will be at Brattleboro Union High Schoo.
