Three Events, Three Opportunities to Attend, and A Little More

Three upcoming events need your attention and support.  The local grid depends on nuclear power, but national anti-nuclear groups are bringing their campaigns to our doorsteps.
Remember:  A charge unanswered is a charge believed!  We must stand together against these prophets of gloom, doom and misinformation—your help is needed.

1) Radio Panel about Vermont Yankee

WHEN:  Tuesday, April 24, 8-10 AM
WHAT: Vermont Yankee Power Struggle: Radio Panel, Northhampton, MA

WHO:  The Energy Education Project is sending Meredith Angwin and Richard Schmidt to defend nuclear energy and provide factual information about Vermont Yankee.  Two people will speak against nuclear: Michael Daley, a long-time activist,  and Jeff Napolitano, a civil disobedience trainer with the American Friends Service Committee
Listen, call in, attend in person!  It will not stream on the web but will be podcast later.
