Georgia WAND demonstration at Georgia Power marking 25th anniversary of Chernobyl

Over a dozen citizens came out to join Georgia WAND and Nuclear Watch South to demonstrate against Georgia Power's proposal to build two new nuclear reactors in Waynesboro, as well as to mark the 25th anniversary of the horrific nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. They took time to remember the human and environmental destruction caused by the massive plume of radiation that spread from the Chernobyl site and across Europe, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

It was also a good opportunity to remind Georgia Power of the dangers and risks involved with nuclear power. Last week the Unit 1 reactor at Southern Company's Plant Vogtle shut down unexpectedly, causing Georgians to question the safety of the nuclear reactors at the site.

The demonstration received local news coverage, which can be found here.
