*Nuclear Information and Resource
*Christmas-Themed Street Theater against Taxpayer-Backed Nuclear Power Loan
*U.S. Department of Energy headquarters (Forrestal Building, 1000
Independence Ave., S.W., Washington D.C.)*. *Friday, December 11th, 11 am*
Please join us on Friday, December 11th at 11 a.m., near the front entrance
of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Forrestal Headquarters Building,
located at 1000 Independence Avenue S.W. (the nearest Metro station is
Smithsonian on the Blue and Orange Lines), Washington, D.C.
Chesapeake Safe Energy Coalition, Friends of the Earth and other groups will
be protesting Energy Secretary Chu's threat to rush $18.5 billion in
taxpayer-backed nuclear power loan guarantees out the door for the building
of new atomic reactors, despite the financial risks and safety flaws with
the reactor designs on DOE's short list. Secretary Chu is also rushing out
another $2 billion in federal loan guarantees for new uranium enrichment
facilities in the U.S. to fuel a new generation of atomic reactors.
This Christmas-themed street theater is being held in conjunction with the
international "Don't Nuke the Climate" days of action around the world. More
than 300 partner organizations in 42 countries will hold actions to "Block
the Path to Nuclear Power," in conjunction with efforts to block the nuclear
power industry from peddling its false, risky "solution" to the climate
crisis at the Copenhagen, Denmark climate negotiations. To learn more about
Don't Nuke the Climate, and to add your group as a partner or to sign your
name to the petition (approaching 50,000 strong!), go to:
Contact Kevin Kamps at Beyond Nuclear (cell 240-462-3216,
kevin at beyondnuclear.org) if you have any questions, would like to play a
role in the street theater, or for messaging ideas for signs or banners to
bring with you.
Thanks, we hope to see you there!
