Members of Occupy Cape Cod lent their support, signs and voices at Sunday's Nuclear Safety Rally and Fukushima Memorial Walk on Sunday in Plymouth.
PilgrimCoalition.org organized the protest walk past the Pilgrim nuclear reactor on Rocky Hill Road to Plymouth Rock on the one year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster in Japan. The group advocates for more safety regulations at the plant.
The operating license for the Pilgrim plant expires on June 8, 2012. The plant's owner Entergy Nuclear is seeking to apply for re-licensing with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the next twenty-years. Pilgrim, which came online in 1972, is a 680-megawatt boiling water reactor, identical in design to Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
