Calling on activists to form Affinity Groups (AGs) and take non- 
violent direct action to permanently close the Vermont Yankee (VY)  
nuclear power plant. Non-violence trainers are available to prepare  
for civil disobedience.

If you are in a new or existing AG or would like to join one, or want  
to arrange a non-violence training, please contact David Detmold, SAGE  
Alliance AG coordinator: reporter at montaguema.net.
The Safe and Green Energy Alliance (SAGE Alliance), is a coalition of  
anti-nuclear organizations in New England and nation-wide opposed to  
the Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor.

Affinity Groups are encouraged to send a spoke to the SAGE  
Coordinating Committee meetings. The next one is Sunday, Feb. 5, in  
Springfield, VT, location to be determined. Contact tom at clamshellalliance.org
