Nuclear Free Northeast Action Camp 2000
10 Aug 2000
Third annual Nuclear Free Northeast Action Camp, August 18-22, Dummerston, VT (near Brattleboro).
The Nuclear Free Northeast Campaign is an ongoing organizing effort to close the region's remaining dangerous, aging and uneconomic atomic reactors as quickly as possible.

The goal of the Northeast Action Camp is to inspire, educate and empower people with the tools and resolve to return to their communities and engage in the activities necessary to make the Northeast the nation's first nuclear free region.

This year, the camp will be shorter and more directed than in the past. Two days of workshops (August 19-20) will be held, focusing primarily on skills development: including grassroots organizing, organizational development, fundraising, and other key areas. A few issues workshops also will be offered, especially related to the ongoing purchases of atomic reactors by unqualified global corporations. There also will be an international component to the camp. Both nights, there will be a major keynote address by a leading figure in the environmental movement. Throughout the camp, there will opportunities for informal discussions and networking. On August 22, we will plan the coming year's campaigns.

On Monday, August 21, there will be a large demonstration at the offices of Vermont Yankee. Non-violence training will begin in western Massachusetts. We encourage everyone to attend non-violence training prior to the camp; only limited training will be available at the camp itself. Persons who do not receive non-violence training prior to the demonstration will have to participate in the associated legal rally only.

There will be daily media events, a website updated daily, local organizing and canvassing and numerous other activities.

For the past two years, attendance has averaged more than 300 people at the Action Camp; this year we're anticipating even more! Expect to be challenged, expect to learn, expect to make a difference...
