[SDCPJ] Appreciation and Video of Today's Activist Press Conference at San Onofre!
I think today was the first time I've ever passed San Onofre on the freeway with a big smile on my face (instead of the usual cursing). Yes, lots more to do on this, but let's pause and savor this victory! This is huge for the people of Southern California and a shot in the arm for the anti-nuclear movement. A stunning victory! Southern California Edison is citing economic concerns, but it is people power that has kept the spotlight on this issue. Without our efforts, this plant would have been quietly restarted long ago. As we gained momentum, we were joined by more and more people, including elected officials who raised the issue to higher levels. Now on to the Decommission Process and dealing with nuclear waste issues. But first, everyone who has participated in this effort in any way should give themselves a huge pat on the back, because it is all of us working together that has held SCE's and the NRC's feet to the fire and kept the process transparent. Power to the people!
