diablonuclearCODEPINK Women for Peace Fundraiser

 
Harvey “No Nukes” Wasserman and Eco-philosopher and Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy will headline a Codepink Women for Peace fundraiser on Sunday, Oct. 26, with music, poetry, film clips, pink refreshments, book signing.

Joanna will discuss awareness of our fears surrounding the huge danger to California’s citizens and economy so we can rise up and take action. Harvey will speak about the current situation at Diablo Canyon and initiatives afoot to shut the plant asap, including a PG&E Ratepayer boycott and a new group called “Puppies and Babies for Safe Energy”, a Codepink house being organized in San Luis Obispo, with an encampment, march and mass civil disobedience at Diablo Canyon, possibly as early as January.  Cecile Pineda will introduce Harvey, Cynthia Papermaster will introduce the PG&E Ratepayer Boycott and Codepink House plans.
 
The Diablo emergency in a nutshell: a senior inspector blew the whistle on the NRC last month saying he recommended shutting it LAST YEAR due to twice the number of active earthquake faults, the inability of the plant to withstand an earthquake, and no sane emergency plan. Billions of gallons of water are used daily to cool the plant; the toxic spent water is spewed back into the ocean killing marine life for hundreds of miles. We don’t have a plan to deal with the radioactive waste, we don’t want a Fukushima in California. Nuclear accounts for 15% of the 40% excess power generated in California; we don’t need nuclear and its associated dangers and toxic waste.PG&E, a private corporation running the unsafe plant, wants the plant license renewed, but the people of California want it shut down. Tonight we launch a ratepayer boycott of PG&E; customers will pledge to route their payments to an escrow account until Diablo is closed. 
Volunteers needed for bake sale and refreshments, ushering, setup and cleanup: 510-365-1500
