Upcoming Nuclear Events

…that need your attention and participation!

September 8, 2012

1.)    WON’T YOU PLEASE COME TO (WASHINGTON?) FOR SOME CHANGE? —  A major national safe-energy/anti-nuclear gathering is scheduled to take place inWashington D.C. from Thursday, Sept. 20 to Saturday, Sept. 22.  NEIS is sending representatives, and other groups and individuals are also making plans.  Details can be found at:  www.coalitionagainstnukes.org/

You can participate by:

  • Contacting the office of your Congressperson and Senators, and strongly urging them to attend or send a representative to the planned nuclear issues briefing scheduled for Thursday afternoon from 2-4 p.m., Cannon House Office Building – Room number 121.
  • Making plans to attend.

This is a very important event, and making advance contact with your rep and Senator will help us emphasize the importance of these nuclear issues when we meet with these people in DC.

2.)    NEXT KNOW-NUKES FILM SERIES:  Atomic Mom,  80 min., 2011.      Thursday, Sept. 27, 6:30 p.m., Multi-Kulti Center, 1000 N. Milwaukee Ave. (at Augusta), Chicago.  Filmmaker M.T. Silva tells the story of her mother – a Navy lieutenant who worked as a researcher on the Manhattan Project, and who years later has to come to grips with her role in creating “the bomb,” and all its effects.  The story takes an even more deeply emotional turn when Silva’s mother meets a hibakusha from Japan.

3.)    SAVE THE DATES (AND ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES…)!:  NEIS has been planning with Beyond Nuclear and others to put on a major national anti-nuclear conference in Chicago to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Enrico Fermi chain-reaction.  We’re planning this for Sat/Sun Dec. 1-2, location TBD, but most likely the University of Chicago campus.  Pencil in the dates to attend.  In addition we will need scores of volunteers to help with planning and running this event.  We’ll be announcing an initial planning session shortly, so we hope you will want to be a part of making this historic event happen.  Contact us by phone or e-mail if you’re interested in helping out.  (773)342-7650neis@neis.org
