Symposium on Decommissioning San Onofre and the Ongoing Dangers of Nuclear Waste

San Onofre, the risks live on                                                             


Our Coalition to Decommission San Onofre can now proudly announce that nationally-regarded nuclear experts Dr. Marvin Resnikoff and Dr. Arjun Makhijani have confirmed they will be joining us for the October 19 symposium at the Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley, 1201 Puerta Del Sol, Suite 100, San Clemente, California 92673.Registration will start at 12 noon and the program will begin at 12:30 PM.

We have been startled by the magnitude of the radioactive nuclear waste management challenge, which involves unusually potent forms of fuel, dense storage of spent fuel far beyond design limits, and huge uncertainties about where the fuel will ultimately be stored and for how long. These issues were below the radar during the shutdown debate but now they loom large.

The symposium will help concerned residents inform ourselves and get active to be sure the outcome is the fairest and best possible for those who continue to live with the presence of San Onofre as a nuclear waste storage site. Come and get briefed on the crucial issues, share your thoughts with other concerned residents, and join us as we organize to help shape the decisions that lie ahead.

We are working diligently on fundraising outreach for necessary costs of the event, and we will put out a notice related to this as soon as possible.

Our coalition member groups include: Peace Resource Center of San Diego, Citizens Oversight Project, Sierra Club Angeles Chapter, Women Occupy San Diego, San Clemente Green, San Onofre Safety, and Residents Organized for a Safe Environment (ROSE). For more info contact one of these groups or Gene Stone at genston@sbcglobal.net.
