Concerned that U.S. nuclear plants are subject to safety risks similar to those that caused the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan, and aware of the ongoing dangers of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war, a coalition of Boston area peace, environmental, and religious groups have joined forces to sponsor a Festival for a Nuclear-Free Future this month in Boston.
The free festival will present information on nuclear power safety and the risks of nuclear weapons in a fun, family-friendly way.
Musicians and dancers slated to perform include rockers Public Interest, Japanese style drummers Rutsubo Taiko, folk singer John Loretz, and a show choir from Showa Boston Institute.

Join members and friends of Massachusetts Action this Saturday afternoon as we review the progress in 2010 and chart the path for our work in 2011.
Ann Jones, the author who documented Afghan women's lives in the searing Kabul in Winter, will speak on ending the Afghanistan war and Afghan women's human rights.
We will work together intensively on the campaign to fund our Massachusetts communities by cutting the military budget. Massachusetts expects a $1.8 billion budget shortfall this year and there will be a lot of controversy on what to do about it. For this part of the afternoon we will divide into small groups by cities/towns or regions of the state. The national coordinator of the New Priorities Network, Michael Prokosch, will introduce our discussion.
Now that the START Treaty has been passed, we'll discuss Peace Action's new three-part strategy in our drive for nuclear disarmament. It may surprise you, and we'll ask for your feedback!
