UJP: Saturday!  Festival for a Nuclear-Free Future-  Copley Square, 2pm


Dear Friend, 

 [1]Pioneering anti-nuclear activist Harvey Wasserman, Vermont Yankee shutdown
campaigner Randy Kehler, Rep. Ed Markey, Cambridge Peace Commission director
Brian Corr, and Pilgrim nuclear safety activist Anna Baker will educate and
inform us at the Festival for a Nuclear-Free Future this Saturday, from 2 to 5
pm, in Copley Square, Boston.
The free, family-friendly festival will feature games, puppets, skits, music,
dance, a giant globe showing where nuclear warheads and power plants are -- and
where they aren't -- and information about what ordinary citizens can do to
promote a saner, safer world.

Festival for a Nuclear-Free Future!

Saturday, July 16, 2-5pm.

Copley Square, Boston

Are U.S. nuclear plants, which are designed the same way as Fukushima, safe? Is
there any way to to permanently store nuclear waste for tens of thousands of
years?    Do we need nuclear power to help combat global climate change, or
can we power a nuclear-free future with solar, wind, and other renewable energy
How about the threat of more than 20,000 nuclear weapons that threaten all of
humanity? Can the U.S. and Russia, which have enough missiles and bombs to
destroy all life on earth many times over, lead the way to global abolition of
nuclear weapons?
Festival entertainers will include rockers Public Interest, folk/topical singers
John Loretz and Martin Hunter, drum ensemble Rutsubo Taiko, and a group of
Japanese theatre students.

UJP and a number of other local groups are sponsoring the Festival to address
some extremely serious problems – nuclear power plants such as Vermont Yankee
and Pilgrim that could become the next Fukushima and turn Greater Boston into an
evacuation zone, and a world with more than 20,000 nuclear weapons and a growing
number of nuclear armed states.

But we'll also be celebrating more hopeful alternatives -- growing international
support for a completely nuclear-weapons-free world through negotiation of a
treaty like the ones that now ban chemical and biological weapons, landmines,
and cluster bombs; and the safe, clean, sustainable energy technologies that,
along with conservation, will make something as costly, dangerous, and
unnecessary as nuclear power a thing of the past.
