Peace Action of Staten Island, in collaboration with the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Staten Island, will sponsor a forum on shutting down the Indian Point Nuclear Power Facility, north of New York City.

The Indian Point Energy Center houses two working nuclear power plants and is just 35 miles from midtown Manhattan in Buchanan, New York. 20 million people live within 50 miles of the plants, including most of Staten Island.  A study commission by New York State found that evacuation is not possible.  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says, “Indian Point is a catastrophe waiting to happen.”  

Shut Down Indian Point Now! (SDIPN.net) is a grassroots organization, comprised of individuals working in New York City to shut down Entergy's Indian PointNuclear Plant and against the use of nuclear power in the US and around the world.

Find out why so many people are calling for the closure of Indian Point Nuclear Plant and the steps it will take to accomplish that goal.  Some of the reasons include: Indian Point’s vulnerability to terrorism, a laundry list of safety problems, the storage of 1500 tons of radioactive waste onsite, and the lack of a workable evacuation plan, 

Other community co-sponsors include:  Staten Island Democratic Association, New Yorkers for Clean Water, Inc., Food & Water Watch, and Eco-Poetry.org, SIARAPB Community, United for Action, Zeitgeist NYC Chapter, Alliance for a Green Economy (list in formation).

This event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

Bus Directions from Staten Island Ferry Terminal:  Take S40 Bus to Clinton Ave and Richmond Terrace.  Walk 2 blocks.  The Unitarian Church is at Clinton Ave and Fillmore St.
