Cape Downwinders Promote Voter Initiative to Move Nuclear Waste

COURTESY OF THE CAPE DOWNWINDERS

PLYMOUTH –The Cape Downwinders initiated a Non-Binding Public Advisory Question Campaign this spring that passed in 14 Cape Cod towns.

The question is expected to be brought to Barnstable voters at fall election.

The effort is meant to be a citizen’s petition to Governor Charlie Baker to speak up for public safety.

According to the group, the campaign is aimed at alerting citizens of the ongoing dangers presented by the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth.

The Downwinders are also encouraging the newly formed Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel to take on the challenge as a first step to safer and secure on-site waste storage.

The panel’s first meeting is Wednesday night in Plymouth.
