NRC Commissioners Approve Pilgrim's Relicense
From Pilgrim Coalition:
Today the NRC Commissioners voted to give Entergy its license to run Pilgrim for another 20 years. The NRC Chairman Greg Jaczko blasted his fellow Commissioners, saying this bad decision is “unprecedented” and tramples the rights of Massachusetts residents to have their concerns over safety and the environment resolved before relicensing.
Make no mistake: this fight has just begun!
Despite what the regulators in Washington, D.C. say, our state and local communities have independent powers over what happens at Pilgrim. We are organized, committed, and have the power of the grassroots. We will continue to fight the NRC and Entergy’s high paid lobbyists and lawyers with people power, backed up by our squadron of talented volunteers that includes experts, lawyers and people from all walks of life.
The NRC has backed us into a corner by denying our request for safety and environmental fixes. Its time for Plan B: decommissioning.
Call Governor Patrick and tell him: “We the people of Massachusetts do not want the Entergy-Louisiana’s dangerous reactor and its high level radioactive waste dump in our back yard. It’s time to decommission.”Here's the Governor's phone number: 617-725-4005
