The environmental groups, Clearwater and Time’s Up! team up for an August 9th action including a 3-hr sail on the Hudson on the Clearwater Sloop to Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, with 50ft banners reading: “No Fukushima on the Hudson” and “Shut Down Indian Point Now!” to call for the permanent closure of the aging power plant. Cyclists from Time’s Up! will start the journey at 7:45am from 156 Rivington Street, Manhattan, with a theatrical “Shut Down Before the Meltdown” bike ride, carrying windmills and signs highlighting the need for safe energy alternatives including wind and solar power.
