A Special TPA Film Night, with actions to shut down Diablo Canyon, the last operating nuclear power plant in California.
Friday March 6th at the Topanga Library.
Snack Pot Luck at 7:15, Presentation 7:30.
For those of you who attended the January film night, we are happy to report that the heating has been fixed and we had a very comfortable February film night last month.
Our extraordinary March film night will include multiple short documentary videos and presentations highlighting the dangers of nuclear power plants and especially the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant near San Luis Obispo, CA. We will see and hear nationally recognized experts including Naomi Klein, Harvey Wasserman, and Dan Hirsch (amongst others) explain how unsafe these plants are, and specifically the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, operated by Pacific Gas and Electric. Myla Reson will be our presenter and facilitate the discussions. Myla has worked for Citizens for Alternatives to Radioactive Dumping (CARD), and Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety (CCNS). She worked with others to successfully shut down Edison’s San Onofre nuclear power plant and is now working with a coalition of activists and organizations to shut down Diablo Canyon power plant.
If you are “on the fence” about nuclear power, we especially want to invite you to join the discussion as well as hear world renowned scientists describe the dangers and poor safety records of these plants.
There will be flyers passed out that include multiple easy actions you can take to help make our world safer. We have a real opportunity to shut down Diablo Canyon if we act now. Let’s do it!
The Topanga Peace Alliance will host this event on Friday, March 6, at the Topanga Library, 122 North Topanga Canyon Blvd., 90290.
We will have a vegetarian snack potluck (no alcohol) at 7:15 p.m. with the film screening at 7:30 p.m. If you can, please bring a non-alcoholic beverage, cheese, dip, fruit or crackers to share. A $10 donation is requested, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.
