PLYMOUTH – Activists opposed to the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth are marching to the State House in Boston to call for its closure.

The four-day march began in Plymouth on Saturday and will culminate with a rally in the Gardiner Auditorium at the State House tomorrow.

Members of the Cape Downwinders, Occupy Hingham and the Massachusetts Downwinders are participating in the 50-mile march, for what they say, is to raise awareness about the threat that Pilgrim is to the surrounding communities.

Cape Downwinders member Elaine Dickinson explained why they chose the route of the march.

“To march through the areas that would be in the path of a radioactive plume should some disaster happen at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant, which is a very old plant,” said Dickinson.

The rally at the State House will include several guest speakers like former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis and State Senator Dan Wolf.

Dickinson said the march is important.

“We’re bringing the message across and educating people across the bridge to the dangers that they are also in,” said Dickinson.
