CAN (Citizens Awareness Network), a grassroots organization that is working to end the use of nuclear power, is organizing a Nuclear Waste Tour in New England. They will be stopping in Hingham at the Glastonbury Abbey on Saturday, October 5 from 3-6pm. There will be a speakers panel from 4-5pm, as well as music and food. Stop by!
The following information comes directly from CAN’s website:
“New England is ground zero for the industry’s attempt to make its nuclear waste problem disappear by foisting it on targeted vulnerable communities in the southwest. The Waste Tour addresses the abdication by the federal government and the nuclear industry to deal with HLNW stranded at nuclear sites throughout the country. We will bring speakers to discuss the issues of nuclear waste, Federal policy, and environmental justice.”
