MOTHERS & OTHERS UNITED to SHUT DOWN INDIAN POINT
The tragic nuclear disaster at Fukushima is proving to be a frightening reminder of what could go wrong here. While Governor Cuomo is in favor of shutting Indian Point down, it's far from closing. Let's remind Cuomo, and other powers that be, that this should be a priority and that we want it shut down now!
If you're a mom, have a mom, want to be a mom, or know a mom, come join our... human (daisy) chain on Mother's Day--in New Paltz*, NY.
Sunday, May 8 · 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Please bring a daisy or another flower of your choice. We will hold or wear these flowers for Mother's Day--to celebrate nature, life, simplicity, and beauty. For peace.
The chain will start on Route 299 near Wallkill View Farm Market in New Paltz, NY. (15 Rt 299.)
We will have a moment of silence for Japan and its people.
RAIN DATE: SUNDAY, May 15th at 1pm.
*New Paltz is about 50 miles from Buchanan, NY, the site of the Indian Point nuclear plant. FIfty miles is significant, as the US NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) recently recommended a 50-mile-radius evacuation at Fukushima.
