ARRESTED FOR NO NUKES OPPOSITION!!!!…as Rennie Cushing, Nelia Sargent and Kendra Ulrich join HarveyW at the Solartopia Green Power & Wellness Show to tell us about their sit-in at Entergy's New Orleans Headquarters…why they did it, how they were treated and what they are planning next as part of the on-going campaign to shut Vermont Yankee and all other atomic reactors. Kendra, Nelia and Rennie are part of a long tradition of non-violent protest and their words on our show speak as loud as their actions. Rennie and Nelia helped found the legendary anti-nuclear Clamshell Alliance, and Rennie also works against the death penalty as explains the mission of Murder Victims' Families for Human Rights, of which he is executive director.

VERMONT YANKEE's escalating legal battles and the TAR SANDS of Canada are on Harvey Wasserman's Solartopia Green Power & Wellness Show this week. Author Richard Watts fills us in on new developments at Vermont's embattled nuke. Then legendary Greenpeace founder Rex Weyler tells us about the tar sands war in Canada and the take-over of our northern neighbor by Big Oil. We also discuss native American history and the tragedy of Leonard Peltier, perhaps the world's longest-held political prisoner.
SHUTTING NUKE POWER IN VERMONT AND NEW YORK is the hottest topic in energy today. At Harvey Wasserman's SOLARTOPIA GREEN POWER & WELLNESS SHOW, Gary Null gives us the rundown on the latest in the fight against nuke power. We're joined by Deb Katz of the Citizens Awareness Network, Philip Mousegass of Riverkeeper, Susan Shapiro of the Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition and others who tell us how grassroots movements may soon bring historic shutdowns to the horrific reactors.
We confront OLD NUKES AND THE NEW GREEN PARTY with Joe DeMare, Ohio Green Party candidate for the US Senate. Grassroots pressure is mounting to shut Vermont Yankee, Indian Point and Ohio's infamous "hole in the head" Davis-Besse reactor. New legal developments indicate states rights may be the ultimate answer to getting these decrepit and increasingly dangerous rust-bucket nukes off-line. Join us for the details at the Solartopia Green Power & Wellness show with Harvey "No Nukes" Wasserman.
