WATER IS LIFE, NUKES ARE NOT THE ANSWER: A Demonstration & Story Sharing
Tuesday September 9th, 7PM
Riverfront Green Park, Peekskil
Indian Point Nuclear Power Station is located in Peekskill, NY, 25 miles north of NYC. Two nuclear reactors on the bank of Hudson River bring river water into the system to cool down the nuclear fuel inside.
The SeaChange crew will be arriving on their handmade, human-powered fleet of paper boats to continue our series of conversations on climate change and the energy crisis, focusing here on why Nukes Are Not the Answer. Local activist groups are invited to present their research and advocacy work at a campfire teach-in. Local activists will share stories about Indian Point as well as archive of testimonies from Fukushima nuclear disaster victims. All will be invited to join the conversation and partake of a potluck meal. The event will be topped off by a collaborative, large-scale origami crane-folding ceremony as a symbol of our hope through resistance.
Bring a dish to share, if you are able.
Bring a warm clothing.
SeaChange: We All Live Downstream is a collaborative art & activism project navigating the Hudson River in handmade paper canoes, initiating dialogue about climate change, extreme energy and water as commons along the way. For more info, visit http://seachange2014.tumblr.com/
