ACTION ALERT! ANTI-RELICENSING CAMPAIGN NEEDS YOU!

ENTERGY HAS ANNOUNCED IT WILL APPLY FOR LICENSE RENEWALS OF BOTH INDIAN POINT 2 UNTIL 2033 AND INDIAN POINT 3 UNTIL 2035.

CONTACT SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON AND REQUEST THAT THE SENATE PASS HER BILL (S. 2488) IN JANUARY REQUIRING AN INDEPENDENT SAFETY INSPECTION OF INDIAN POINT.

"If nuclear energy is so safe, why won't insurance companies, experts at estimating odds, cover damages from nuclear accidents?" Read Darcy Casteliero's Op-Ed piece in the Journal News, May 8, 2005 on our 2005 Articles page.

Our anti-relicensing campaign was launched at an exciting meeting attended by almost 200 people at the Greenburgh Town Hall on Tuesday, March 29, 2005. If you were there, thank you for coming! See the Mid-Hudson News, the Journal News and the Times Herald-Record's accounts.

This campaign is the next essential step in the effort to close Indian Point and we need your help!

The purpose of this campaign is to stop Entergy’s anticipated bid to re-license Indian Point for an additional 20 years. We believe Entergy may submit a relicensing application to the NRC as early as January, 2007. We are counting on your help to circulate a new resolution opposing Indian Point’s relicensing throughout the 50-mile radius.
