Join GNB & Rock The Reactors March 28th at Cortland Manor

On March 28th, from 3:00pm to 6:30pm, at Colonial Terrace, 119 Oregon Road, the same Cortland Manor where John Hall was sworn in as Rockland County's new Congressman a few weeks ago, Entergy is co-hosting the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce's 2007 Business Expo.
The website states:
"Hosted by WHUD’s Mike Bennett, it is shaping up to be fabulous day. There will be door prizes, raffles and entertainment throughout the day. Since last year’s Expo was so popular this year there will be “complimentary valet parking” and from 5:00pm – 6:30pm complimentary Hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. This is an event you want to see for yourself!"
There will be a preliminary networking event on March 14th from 6pm to 8pm. Both Kathleen McMullin and James F.X. Steets of Entergy sit on the board of directors of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce. James F.X. Steets is also its Vice Chairman.

Green Nuclear Butterfly supports Congressman John Hall, who as a member of Musicians United for Safe Energy, co-wrote the anthem "Power", in his effort to open a renewable energy center on the land now occupied by Entergy. John J. Curran, Peekskill's official city historian, president of the Peekskill Museum, told GNB that a coalition of Native Americans tribes want to buy back the land on which Indian Point sits!
Entergy has NOT been a good neighbor. Their Indian Point facility is contaminating surrounding waters, animal and plant life with radioactive isotopes. Cancer rates around Indian Point are documented much higher than normal. Yet, Senator Hillary Clinton, who sits on the board of directors at Cornell University's Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors, still has not officially associated the rise in breast cancer rates with the nuclear industry's reign of radioactive terror.
We urge you to contact the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, write to them, call them... explain to them that Entergy is no longer welcome in this community. That the people of Rockland County have spoken by electing John Hall as their Congressman. That the people of Peekskill want Entergy out of its chamber of commerce, as well as out of the Paramount Center.

Green Nuclear Butterfly will be handing out literature about the real dangers of Indian Point and the risk of aging nuclear reactors at the 2007 Business Expo, as well as educating the community about alternative sources of investment, business opportunities and capital available to the region which GNB and Rock The Reactors are developing with executives from HSBC's sustainable investment division.
The best and easiest way to close down Indian Point, is to quietly, gently, kindly escort Entergy outside the Peekskill city limits, bid them fairwell, and a good day.
