Mayor Leo A. W. Wiegman comes out to support IPSEC and a Nuclear Free Future

This morning the two walks converged at Croton on Hudson for a press conference and short gathering before marching on to Indian Point Nuclear Facility.

About 50 people turned up for the event which was organized by the Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition in conjunction with Grafton Peace Pagoda and the New England Peace Pagoda.

The mayor offered his support and made all participants honorary peace walkers and honorary citizens of Croton on Hudson.

Next up was a presentation by Maurice Enis and his fiance Jamie Plym, two former Navy sailors who were irradiated in their time serving off the coast of Japan. The two of them explained what it’s like now without any insurance since they honorably separated from the Navy, and their serious health ailments.

They will be coming to Stony Point Center tomorrow afternoon after the walk to share their story during the “Fukushima Fallout” conference [http://www.ipsecinfo.org/].

After the gathering at Croton on Hudston train station the group walked down about 6 miles to the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor where they had a vigil and offered peace cranes before gathering in a circle for a short ceremony.

Walking to Indian Point

The walk route has been changed tomorrow. Rather than beginning at Indian Point Nuclear Reactor, the walk will begin at First Presbyterian Church on 34 S. Highland Ave in Ossning, NY.
Sorry for any inconvenience, this route is much safer.
