TIME'S UP! JOINED FORCES WITH CLEARWATER FOR BIKE RIDE & SAIL ACTION UP TO INDIAN POINT NUCLEAR POWER PLANT WITH 50FT BANNER: "SHUT DOWN INDIAN POINT NOW"

The environmental groups, Clearwater and Time's Up! teamed up for August 9th action which included a 3-hr sail on the Hudson on the Clearwater Sloop to Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, with 50ft banners reading: "No Fukushima on the Hudson" and "Shut Down Indian Point Now!" to call for the permanent closure of the aging power plant. Cyclists from Time's Up! started the journey at 7:45am from downtown Manhattan with a theatrical "Shut Down Before the Meltdown" bike ride, carrying windmills and signs highlighting the need for safe energy alternatives including wind and solar power. The August 9th action also drew attention to Indian Point's many safety violations, including the lack of a workable evacuation plan.
