Bob Weir's Publicist Dances Around Indian Point Issue


Seems yesterday was a BIG DAY where Indian Point was concerned, and the Green Nuclear Butterfly was out making waves in front of the Paramount Theatre as Bob Weir's publicist did the two step boogie trying to dance around the Entergy/Indian Point issue. Green Nuclear Butterfly had tracted the band down early in the day by getting to the theatre and speaking with members of the road crew who were STUNNED that the theatre is incestously tied to the Entergy corporation that is polluting the Hudson River with 10 Million gallons of irradiated water each and every year...THOSE BASTARDS.

The publicist for Bob Weir and his band the Ratdogs came out of Bob's tan colored tour bus long enough to speak with us in the sub artic temperatures for about three minutes. He said that both he and Bob Weir are anti nuclear, and continued on to say that A) the band was not aware of Entergy's financial ties to the theatre, and thus Ratdogs appearence there. He further stated that the band had a long talk on the issue, and would probably not play said venue in the future as long as Entergy was funding the theatre...Green Nuclear Butterfly will be handing out boycott fliers at numerous events at the Paramount to bring attention to this situation...the Paramount needs to tell Entergy Goodbye to be more in line with the public who supports it...we want Indian Point GONE, and that means Entergy.

Green Nuclear Butterfly was interviewed at the Coffee Shop across from theatre by Channel 12, but the spot was not aired due to other important Indian Point news:

1. The NRC released their grade for the year...as was/is to be expected, the NRC gave Indian Point a passing grade, mitigating horrid issues of non compliance (leaking fuel pools) with the comment that Entergy is working on them.

2. Reactor 3 is closing down for one month to REFUEL the reactor...in short, another perilous and dangerous time for the community as the bungling staff of Indian Point plays with their fuel rods while thinking of Betcee.

3. Unless they postpone it, Indian Point today (March 7th) is supposed to file their application for license renew with the NRC...chances, just like with the new siren installation, the application will be LATE in being filed.

Green Nuclear Butterfly in conjunction with Rock The Reactors were successful yesterday in interacting with over 1200 people, and we distributed over 500 fliers and CD Roms. Total financial costs for this community out reach was $150.00, so if any one wants to contribute to the cause, your donations would be appreciated.

I'd normally agree but they actually know their shit. Fuck Hux when I was up in Ottawa and you squired me around Parliament the fucking Canadian Nuclear Industry was holding a heavily secured conference at the Westin and let me tell you half those fuckers could do with a little standing out in the cold and handing out fliers. Hell you and I could do with it and I hate those flier fuggers.
