Occupy Entergy for the Day 3.22

  • Action Center

  • The Rally, March and Non-Violent Direct Action at Entergy Vermont Yankee Headquarters on March 22, 2012: 1,500 strong on the first day Entergy is operating a rogue reactor, without the legal sanction of the State of Vermont.  Photos Part 1  Photos Part 2

    While we were marching over a thousand strong to our local Entergy HQ, eight intrepid heroes of the “New England Natural Guard” were occupying the national HQ in New Orleans, including Safe & Green’s own Nancy Braus and Kendra Ulrich. Linda Gunter of Beyond Nuclear created a silent movie about their adventure which would have made Charlie Chaplin proud. Enjoy it here http://youtu.be/hlEPKqfulgw .
