At the Park Street Protest -- Saturday, Feb. 21

This is my soap box speech from the Park Street demo, Sat. Feb. 21. Thankfully it was not so cold as it is today!  

The global situation is careening out of control

Every country the U.S. and/or NATO have bombed is in a state of chaos: Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, and Afghanistan. US warmongers are not satisfied with all that chaos, they are sparring with Russia over the Ukraine – playing a very dangerous game with a nuclear armed power

Vermont Yankee was one of the GE Mark I reactors - the same design as the three Fukushima reactors that melted down in the 2011 earthquake disaster in Japan.
