One year after the Nuclear disaster at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Facility the situation is far from under control. Dangerous levels of radioactivity are still being found hundreds of miles from the site of the accident. More than 80,000 people have been forced to ...leave their homes with little hope of returning. In addition to the incalculable health costs, the decades-long process of clean-up and decontamination of almost 1,000 square miles of land may cost as much as 250 billion dollars with limited prospects for success. Meet participants in a nineteen-day walk from Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant in NH to Plymouth Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth, MA on the anniversary of the catastrophe at Fukushima, Japan and ending in Vernon, VT at Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant. The group will stop on the night of March 6th for this event at the Cambridge Friends Meeting House near Harvard Square. There will be a discussion on the dangers of nuclear power and current issues regarding the Plymouth and Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plants.
