Energy and Environment
The Grand Staircase in the Massachusetts State House reverberated with the call to Close Pilgrim NOW this afternoon as citizens held a two hour speakout detailing every aspect of the problem.
The Pilgrim nuclear plant is operated by Entergy Corp. which has said it will close the reactor in 2019. Even the nuclear-loving NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) has designated this plant one of the three most unsafe in the nation.
A One-Day Conference
In the name of national security, our country's policies are causing multiple, systemic crises. These include climate catastrophe, extreme inequality, constant wars, deep-seated racism, mass incarceration, and a militarized culture.
Only large social movements can remove these barriers to genuine security and construct a society based on Sustainable Security.
This conference will explore three pillars of sustainable national and world security:
- A fairly-shared global prosperity based on economic, social, and racial justice
- Emergency action to address climate change and build a new, fossil-fuel-free energy system
- A Foreign Policy for All based on even-handed diplomacy, ending our disastrous military interventions, abolition of nuclear weapons, and reclaiming war resources for the urgent needs that face our world
Join Us! in this effort to strategize, collaborate and mobilize for effective action together.

How Climate Change will Provoke World Conflict ... And Why Sustainability Is the Only Sure Road to Peace
"Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, the East and South China Seas: wherever you look, the world is aflame with new or intensifying conflicts.

Protest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
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.
