The Day the Earth Died!


Sunday, July 20th, the International Preparedness Network, led by Aton Edwards, hosted an environmental awareness event at the Bowery Poetry Club in Manhattan.  Poets, speakers and musicians expressed themselves and the message of global environmental sanity and sustainability. One issue featured was the danger posed by Indian Point, a nuclear energy facility 30 miles from downtown Manhattan.

Organizations seeking to shut down Indian Point were in attendance helping audience members take action.
