CURRENT ALERTS:

Oppose Waste Reprocessing in Illinois!

Oppose DOE plans to reprocess spent nuclear fuel in Illinois


Greetings All!

We urge you to send comments to the DOE and members of the Illinois Delegation to oppose plans considering sites in Illinois as centers that would reprocess spent nuclear fuel from commercial nuclear reactors.  As part of President Bush's "GNEP" proposal (Global Nuclear Energy Partnership program) this issue brings together concerns of both safe-energy activists and  peace activists concerned about the proliferation of nuclear materials.

BOTH of our Illinois Senators -- especially Presidential candidate Obama -- need to get the message that expansion of nuclear industries in Illinois is not acceptable policy: not for energy, not for peace.  They can be reached at:

Sen. Richard Durbin:
Washington: 332 Senate Dirksen Building, Washington, D.C. 20510
                     (202)224-2152; (202)228-0400 fax
Chicago: Kluczynski Federal Building, 38th floor, Chicago, IL  60604
              (312)353-4952; (312)

Sen. & Presidential Candidate Barack Obama:
Washington: B40-B Senate Dirksen Building, Washington, D.C. 20510
                     (202)224-2854; (202)228-5417 fax
Chicago: Kluczynski Federal Building, 39th floor, Chicago, IL  60604
              (312)886-3506; (312)886-3514 fax

In particular this is an early opportunity to help the good Senator/Candidate Obama shape what will be an acceptable platform for peace and energy security.

It is up to us to draw the line in the sand once and for all on nuclear issues here in Illinois.  We are the Thin Green Line.
