Cape Downwinders organizes march to Pilgrim Station Sunday - Plymouth, MA - May 20, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m

    PLYMOUTH - The organization Cape Downwinders, whose mission is to “take action to protect the lives and welfare of the residents of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket against the threat of death or injury resulting from the use of nuclear energy…” is staging a march to the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station. Where: Staging area 1 Elliot Lane, Plymouth, with a 1 mile march to the gate of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station When: Sunday, May 20, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. According to a press release announcing the march, Cape Downwinders holds that the Nuclear Regulation Commission is considering Entergy’s application for re-licensing the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station for an additional 20 years, without implementing critical lessons learned in Fukushima, Japan. Cape Downwinders says that groups of concerned citizens will gather in Plymouth to demand that the Pilgrim nuclear power plant’s 40 year license must expire (it’s due to expire in June). The General Electric Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactor is the same design that failed at four reactors in Japan. Loss of offsite electricity was the cause and, according to NRC officials, a similar accident could happen here. The nuclear waste spent fuel pool was designed to hold 880 highly radioactive rods and currently holds 3,270.
