“Your Time Is Up:” Activists Plan Non-Violent Direct Action, Demand Immediate Closure of Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant

Outraged at a federal ruling on Monday allowing the continued operation of the 40-year-old Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, anti-nuclear activists are planning civil disobedience calling for the closure of the plant.

In Monday’s ruling, a federal judge blocked Vermont from closing the plant, whose license expires today. The ruling said the state couldn’t close the plant over concerns of storage of spent fuel.

Vermont’s Public Service Board must still issue Vermont Yankee a new license for it to continue operating.
