Pilgrim Nuke protest at Sagamore Bridge today

Local anti-nuke protesters were at the Sagamore Bridge Monday spending a good part of the oh so beautiful Memorial Day expressing their views on this important issue rather than drinking beer and ignoring the dangers we all face here on the Cape.

Jane Gross: "I was here forty years ago when this facility opened. There was no plan for the nuclear waste and now we're going to be stuck with it. The people who were jamming it down out throats forty years ago said it would last forty years. And it has. Now, let's close it down!"

Maxine Wolfset: "It's important for concerned citizens to come out and express their beliefs about the dangers we face on Cape Cod."

Kate Darring: "I was here today because the plan for Cape Cod in the event of a nuclear disaster is sheltering in place and then being relocated. The nuclear plant is old. I don't trust the infrastructure and the safety system. We get a small percentage of our electricity and face a huge potential for disaster."

Paul Rifkin: "A radiological release from Pilgrim Nuke has the potential to make Cape Cod uninhabitable in perpetuity. Let's work together to close the damn plant down for GOOD!"
