Close Pilgrim NOW!

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.

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
