CAN envisions a future of safety, prosperity, and good health for all where:
• People generate electricity for their own homes and communities
• Local energy production and conservation create new local jobs
• Renewable energy is integrated into all of our homes and public buildings
• It is easy for everyone to access sustainable and affordable energy
• Clean, efficient energy use is standard practice
• Family farms and locally owned businesses are the backbone of our communities

Say NO to the "Nuclear Waste America" Bill!

Nuclear power produces highly radioactive nuclear waste with no place to go because, guess what—there is no safe place to store it! Moving highly radioactive nuclear waste is INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS!

                                               Say NO!

Or contact your U.S. Representative directly, look up their phone number here.

In June, a group letter went to Shimkus and his Co-Chair OPPOSING THE BILL, signed by 49 organizations. The letter is a great source of talking points. You can also send the letter itself if you email your US Representative.

Does your Rep have nuclear waste transport routes in his/her congressional district? Find out here.


Stop the Nuclear Tax Bailout!

Last month, we told you about a bailout the nuclear industry is trying to push through Congress. Despite a multi-billion-dollar price tag, they are still at it. And if they can’t win a vote on the bill (HR 1551), they may resort to sneaky tricks, like adding the tax breaks to the budget bill or another energy bill. If we can stop them, it could stop new reactors and end the so-called “Nuclear Renaissance” (what we call a "Relapse"), once and for all.

Contact your senators now: “Stop the Nuclear Tax Bailout!”

Say NO!

  To The Village Square

To the Village Square: From Montague, Massachusetts to Fukushima, Japan 1975-2014

A book by Lionel Delevingne, Photographer

"Along the way Lionel Delevingne has been the 'family photographer' of an amazing body of people and actions that, against all odds, have created a way for the human race to survive. Our time together has been joyous, demanding, pathbreaking, exciting, astounding and so much more. All captured on film by the brilliant, loving lens of Lionel Delevingne, and in the beautiful words of Anna Gyorgy’s introduction. 'To the Village Square' is the essential passport to four decades of peaceful passion. Don’t miss it!"

—Harvey “No Nukes” Wasserman

“To the Village Square is AMAZING and important and moving”

—William C. Newman (Director ACLU, Western Mass Regional Office.)
