Occupy Forum Presents “SHUT DIABLO CANYON, CALIFORNIA’S LAST NUKE!” @ Global Exchange, 2nd floor, near 16th St. BART
Dec 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

SHUT DIABLO CANYON, CALIFORNIA’S LAST NUKE!

With the wonderful anti-nuke activist and writer Harvey “No Nukes” Wasserman, author of Solartopia. Harvey coined the term “No Nukes”. He was arrested at Diablo back in the 80s. He organized anti-nuke concerts with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Crosby Stills Nash & Young. He has a radio program on Progressive Radio Network: Solartopia Green Power And Wellness Hour – 12.09.14 – PRN.fm

also: Linda Seeley with San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, and Cynthia Papermaster, coordinator of Codepink “PG&E Ratepayer Revolt to Shut Diablo Now!”

Starts promptly at 6! Information, discussion & community! Time will be allocated for announcements. Donations welcome, no one turned away. Occupy Forum is an opportunity for open and respectful dialogue on all sides of these critically important issues!

You’re going to want to be a part of this historic campaign and convergence to shut Diablo!

The NRC’s chief resident inspector at Diablo, Dr. Michael Peck, recommended LAST YEAR to shut the plant because critical backup safety systems won’t work in the event of an earthquake.

California’s Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors are surrounded by earthquake faults they were never designed to withstand. They are riddled with design flaws and can’t meet basic fire safety standards. They dump huge quantities of hot water into the ocean in defiance of state water quality standards, killing billions of sea creatures.
They continue to pile up huge quantities of deadly radioactive wastes that have no place to go. And that’s just the start of it.
Fortunately, a powerful grassroots movement is rising up in California to shut these reactors and make the state nuke-free. More demonstrators have been arrested at Diablo Canyon than any other nuke site in the U.S. Green Power activists recently won a landmark victory by shutting the two nukes at San Onofre, between Los Angeles and San Diego, leaving just the ones at Diablo to plague the state.

This gathering is meant to inform, energize, plan and commit us all to winning another great victory over the nuclear power industry, and to finally bring California to Solartopia, a green-powered state where we can live in harmony and safety with our nuke-free Mother Earth. Join us at this rare and wonderful gathering…bring your best intentions and let’s figure out how to win this one NOW.

Linda Seeley
Linda Seeley is Vice-President and Spokesperson for San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, the legal intervenor in all matters pertaining to the safety and licensing of Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant in Avila Beach, CA.

She has lived in San Luis Obispo for 32 years, where she delivered over a thousand babies during her career as a nurse-midwife. Her passion for the future generations is the guiding principle in her work to shut down Diablo Canyon.

EDGE COLLECTIVE 2nd OAKLAND ASSEMBLY ON JUSTICE FOR MIKE BROWN AND ERIC GARNER @ OMNI Collective
Dec 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Thanks to the group of over 80 people who came and participated in the December 14 meeting at Oscar Grant Plaza. Though we were forced to deal with the presence of several uniformed OPD officers as well as a freelance photo journalist and San Francisco Chronicle staffer who refused to leave, the group was able to reflect on this most recent wave of actions and what kind of infrastructures are necessary in the future to support our efforts. Thanks also to the Anti-Repression Committee who gave information about what kinds of support is still needed for people facing charges.

The assembly had initially decided to meet again at the Omni Oakland Commons on Sunday, December 21 @ 2PM. There are multiple events happening this weekend, however, and while we apologize for the change of plans, we think it is best to push back the meeting another week. We hope that folks will attend the following events and continue to help us outreach as much as possible.

Sunday, December 21 @ 1-3pm: Bay Area Legal Observer and Know Your Rights Training workshop in support of #BlackLivesMatter at the East Side Arts Alliance.

Sunday December 21 @ 4pm: Winter Solstice Posada for Alex Nieto at 24th and Mission in San Francisco.

To repeat: the second assembly will take place at the Omni Oakland Commons on Sunday, December 28 @ 2pm.

Noise Demo.

Proposal for Prison Noise Demos Across North America on New Year’s Eve

… we organize noise demonstrations every New Year’s Eve outside the walls of prisons,
jails, and immigrant detention centers. Sometimes these are the facilities
where specific comrades are held and sometimes these are facilities in which
social prisoners and rebels unknown to us have been left to rot. Either way,
we use our voices, banners, sound systems, instruments, and fireworks to
remind prisoners that they are never alone.

March for Real Climate Leadership @ Snow Park
Feb 7 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

On February 7th thousands of Californians from across the state are gathering in Governor Jerry Brown’s longtime home of Oakland to say that we need real climate leadership. Across the state wells are drying up, more than a dozen cities are in real danger of running out of water, & there’s no question it’s being made worse by climate change.

But instead of reigning in the oil and gas industry & putting an end to incredibly dangerous and water-intensive practices like fracking, Governor Brown has been letting companies continue with business as usual. Join people from all corners of California this February in telling Governor Brown that if he won’t be a real climate leader, that if he won’t stand up to the fossil fuel industry, then we will. Because this is about our water, our health, & our California.
