Shut Down Diablo Canyon and Indian Point Reactors Now! – R.I.P. USA Nuclear Reactors
Humboldt County, CA: In light of the corporate nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Japan, and the blindness of President Obama to the impossibility of running a safe nuclear power industry, local North Coast residents will gather at one of the oldest nuclear power reactor sites in the U.S.A., the Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power Plant, from noon to 4 P.M. this Tuesday, April 26, 2011, the 25th Anniversary of the Chernobyl Catastrophe in Ukraine. Rally in support of the people of Japan and in solidarity with the current campaigns to immediately shut down reactors at Diablo Canyon, CA and Indian Point Nuclear Plant, N.Y.
Also, please sign this petition:
Tell your Representative to co-sponsor HR 1242 To ensure that nuclear power plants that are built can withstand and adequately respond to earthquakes, tsunamis, strong storms, or other events that threaten a major impact.
Addendum: Didn’t realize until I heard Democracy Now this morning that the demo is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl.
Did you know that Chernobyl translates as “Wormwood” and that Wormwood is mentioned in Revelations in which it is described as a star which will poison the water?
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”
A star is kind of like a nuclear power plant, right?
