TODAY, Monday, 5:00pm - Chris Williams - No Nukes! No Fracking! - How

Renewable Energy Can Power the Planet

 

at Liberty (formerly Zuccotti) Park - Broadway & Liberty St.

 

6 train to Fulton St., A,C,E to World Trade Center, N,R to Rector St.

 

In a clear indication of just how far removed from reality the debates in

Washington have become, the meltdowns that occurred at the Fukushima-Daiichi

nuclear plant in Japan have led to calls by US politicians not for an

end to nuclear

power, but for its EXPANSION and the growth of other environmentally destructive

energy “solutions”: hydrofracking, the refining of tar sands,

mountain-top removal of coal, the expansion of off-shore drilling.

 

But movements against nuclear power, fracking and TRULY SUSTAINABLE

ENERGY are RE-EMERGING with renewed vitality across the world: due to

mass protest, the governments of Germany and Switzerland are closing

their nuke plants and 95% of Italians just voted to do the same!

 

How can we build the movement here in NYC? How realistic are wind,

solar and geothermal alternatives to power all of our energy needs?

What other changes are necessary to bring them about? Join us at

OCCUPY WALL ST at Liberty Park to discuss how we can STRENGTHEN THIS

movement and what solutions can put forward for the ecological crisis

facing our society!
