Event Description

            On Thursday, May 18th, citizens concerned about the nuclear weapons work at Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) will gather to learn more and express their views about recent developments, prior to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's public performance review of NFS in the Unicoi County Courthouse in Erwin TN.

             There are three opportunities to join this effort. The Appalachian Peace Education Center is sponsoring a teach-in and press conference at 4:30 at the Magnolia Room, 102 S Main Avenue in Erwin.     

             At 5:30, a rally will be held in front of the Erwin Courthouse (100 N. Main Ave.) to greet attendees of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's public "licensee performance review", which begins at 6:30 in the courthouse.

            One of the key speakers at the 4:30 teach-in/news conference will be Dr. Michael Ketterer, Professor Emeritus of Northern Arizona University, who has been testing the soil, air, and water polluted by Nuclear Fuel Services for the past ten years. Professor Ketterer will announce new results of his testing for air pollution in Erwin at that time. He will also explain how his sampling methods clearly show that the Nolichucky River has been polluted by nuclear waste all the way to Douglas Lake.
            The public is invited to attend the teach-in and news conference at the Magnolia Room at 4:30, May 18th, and to join others in front of the Unicoi County Courthouse at 5:30 to express concern about the dangers of nuclear weapons production. The public is also welcome at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's official "licensee performance review," which will begin at 6:30 in the courthouse.

             Please share this invitation to anyone who might be interested in learning more and helping to protect our region and the wellbeing of the natural systems and human communities served by the Nolichucky River.
