A new affinity group has started in New Hampshire to support efforts to close Vermont Yankee nuclear plant. Recently ‘Nuke Free Monadnock’ participated in the New Year’s rally at VY with fellow activists. The Brattleboro Reformer had this to say:
VERNON — As the year 2011 wound down on Saturday, a newly-formed New Hampshire group, opposed to the continued operation of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, gathered at gates of the plant to ring in a “nuclear free new year.”
According to its members, the group, Nuke Free Monadnock, was formed as a way for New Hampshire residents to have a voice in the opposition of the nuclear plant, owned and operated by Entergy.
