To our members, comrades and allies,

This coming Thursday, Sept. 6th, Shut Down Indian Point Now! will be participating in the “Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice” rally and March hosted by People’s Climate Movement NY.  SDIPN will be marching as the “Nuclear-Free / Carbon-Free” contingent. We need as many of you as possible to participate with us.  For SDIPN members in particular, attending this event will count as one of the two annual events required to become or maintain your status as a voting member of SDIPN.

We need people to carry our banners and distribute flyers, all of which will be provided, but as always, feel free to bring your own materials too. We also understand that you may be participating as a member of one of the many other contingents. Here’s a suggestion: carry a sign with our slogan, “Nuclear-Free / Carbon-Free,”  in your contingent.

Here are the details:

Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice
Rally & March
Thursday, September 6, 2018
Battery Park, NYC

  • 5:00 PM: Assemble at Castle Clinton
  • 6:00 PM: Program
  • 6:30 PM: March north up Church Street then over to Zucotti Park

For more information, visit the PCMNY website: https://www.pcmny.org/events

We will be the only participating group explicitly calling for an end to nuclear power, and for ending the Tier 3 subsidies* that NY State is giving to the 3 failing upstate nuclear power plants: Fitzpatrick, Ginna & Nine Mile Point.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), along with Gov. Cuomo, are responsible for promoting these bailouts, touting them as necessary to save jobs and to reach NY’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. We believe this is taking us in the wrong direction and must be ended. The money spent for these bailouts would be better served in subsidizing alternative clean, green energy sources, and in developing a true Just Transition Program that would provide re-training for, and employment in the new jobs that will be created. Please read Tim Judson’s recent article in the Gotham Gazette on why Tier 3 needs to go (link below).**

Please let us know if you will be participating. We really do need you to help get our explicit Nuclear-Free / Carbon-Free message out to the public. Please reach out to anyone  you know who might also want to participate. There are a variety of contingencies to join from Faith, to Nurses, to Unions and many in between.

For people and planet,

Catherine Skopic

Report on March 3rd Rally at City Hall

12819411_10153961955839629_5246872733553416482_oVia SDIPN member Marty Rajandran: “3 March action at NYC City Hall ‘ARE RECENT leaks of radioactive Tritium a danger to NYC water supply?’ A group of about 25 called on Mayor Del Blasio to support an independent investigation on the recent multiple accidents at Indian Point, Nuclear Power Plant, 25 miles from NYC. Already affected are groundwater around Indian Point and the Hudson River. Entergy says that there is no threat to public health! Do we really believe this? Is this a threat to NYC water supply? And what about other towns along the Hudson?…..Its time to shut it down. Mayor, join our call, that of millions of NYers, including the Governor, to say SHUT IT DOWN NOW. Call your local council member to support Resolution 0694: Shut Down Indian Point.”
