Description

The Alliance to Halt Fermi 3 is opposed to building Fermi 3, Detroit Edison's proposed new nuclear reactor in Monroe, Michigan. We also believe Fermi 2 should be shut down before it melts down. We support clean energy, sustainable jobs and non-violent res

The Oppose Fermi 2 people are ready to set up a billboard on Trumbull Ave., moving into the second step of their campaign next Friday, May 30th. The Stop Fermi committee is asking all of the organizations who joined the coalition in support of the campaign to join the Press Conference on Friday. There are more activities planned for that day that will most likely be of interest. ATHF3 keith.gunter9@gmail.com Representatives of the the Alliance to Halt Fermi -3 (ATHF-3) will be present at a press event to announce the coalition's media and public outreach campaign for the summer of 2014. At this event, a rendering of a 14' x 40' foot billboard will be unveiled that includes the words: "Let's Be Free from Fermi-3". This billboard will be displayed near Tiger Baseball games at St. Peter Church (Michigan and Trumbull) so it will be viewed by thousands of Detroit Tiger fans. For more information, contact Keith Gunter at 313-702-7241.

An afternoon with Dr. Gordon Edwards, President, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility Sponsored by Alliance To Halt Fermi-3, Citizens for Alternatives to Chemical Contamination, Swords into Plowshares Gallery & Peace Center On Sunday afternoon, April 13, people in the Detroit Area will have a unique opportunity to learn more about Canada's plans to abandon nuclear wastes from 20 nuclear reactors in an underground dump less than a mile from Lake Huron, and what American citizens can do to stop it. Dr. Gordon Edwards, President of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, will explain the situation in down-to-earth language and answer questions from 3 to 5 PM at the Swords into Plowshares Gallery (33 East Adams, Detroit, MI 48226). Dr. Edwards is an independent expert in mathematics and physics who has served as a consultant on nuclear issues for over 35 years, for governmental and non-governmental bodies in Canada and the U.S. He has been in the forefront of growing opposition to Ontario Power Generation's proposed Deep Geological Repository (DGR). Instead of allowing the nuclear industry to abandon its nuclear waste and then forget it, Dr. Edwards advocates an alternative approach to nuclear waste management called "Rolling Stewardship". He will be in the Detroit area to weigh in on the controversy as the time period for public comment on the DGR proposal is about to expire. In addition to the Detroit area event, Dr. Edwards will also be presenting at St. Clair County Community College on Monday, April 14th, and at Monroe County Community College on Tuesday, April 15th. "The Age of Nuclear Waste is upon us," warns Gordon Edwards. "But should we jeopardize the Great Lakes for the convenience of the nuclear industry? Sustainable stewardship is the only sane alternative to abandoning nuclear wastes right on the edge of one of the largest bodies of fresh water on the planet." ________________________________________________________________ Contact: Dr. Gordon Edwards (514) 489-5118 or ccnr@web.ca Keith Gunter, Co-Chair, Alliance To Halt Fermi-3 (313) 702-7241 or Keith.Gunter9@gmail.com
