The Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant is closing and we made that happen!  There is no doubt about it.  Vermont Yankee would not have closed, if it weren’t for the amazing coalition of organizations and thousands of people who, over the last 42 years:

  • organized educational events and actions
  • were arrested or supported acts of non-violent civil disobedience
  • joined demonstrations and rallies at the Statehouse, in Vernon, Brattleboro and around the state
  • made props and signs for those demonstrations and rallies
  • leafletted on corners and farmers markets
  • lobbied legislators
  • went to sit-in at the statehouse
  • testified at NRC, the PSB, VESNAP and other important hearings
  • cycled around the state and the nation to engage the citizens in conversations about VY and nuclear power
  • went door-to-door  to engage the citizens in conversations about VY and nuclear power
  • made phone calls to engage the citizens in conversations about VY and nuclear power
  • wrote letters to editors and legislators and neighbors
  • and SOOOOO much more…

THANKS to all of us the powers that be at the state and Entergy finally gave in to the fact that Vermont Yankee is just too damn old, dangerous and expensive!
