Anti-nuclear activists at a public Nuclear Regulatory Commission Tuesday will be focusing their "core message" on demanding the release of all documents related to the radioactive steam leak and subsequent shutdown of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
San Diego activist Ace Hoffman sent out emails to the media and his fellow activists in the coalition formed against Southern California Edison in the wake of a letter from Sen. Barbara Boxer and a Massachusetts lawmaker accusing SCE and equipment manufacturer Mistsubishi Heavy Industries of knowingly installing steam generators with safety problems.
The NRC is currently in the midst of a process to decide whether to allow Edison to start half the plant at partial power.
The following is a letter from anti-nuclear activist Ron Rodarte included in the package sent by activists.
The game is changed.
This is no longer a choice by the NRC to allow a re-start of SONGS at 70 percent.
It is now the fate of the NRC that hangs in the balance with their next choice to either release the full content of the Mitsubishi Letter, or in redacting and restricting the content and be dragged into the contamination by defending the acts of SCE.
Mockery and ridicule have served the conservative corporatists well in this era of denigration of dissent designed to misinform, misdirect and reap ill-gained profit.
It is known that mockery is the weapon of choice of the idiot, but it is also the theatric tool of a master playwright, as in Shakespeare’s ingenious use of the character.
It plays both ways.
The wind is with us and it blows in all directions; emanating from SCE’s lies and foul reproach of whistleblowers in the containment domes at SONGS.
Edison has contaminated their corporatism-at-any-cost model of profit.
And, it has doomed any body or group assembly that stands up to defend the lies in a public forum with the knowledge of criminal endangerment of 8 million residents, billions of dollars of USA assets, and the entire World Economy that has also been put at risk.
The content of the MHI letter identified by Barbara Boxer and Rep. Markey is the key to the success of this movement.
We must act to force the hand of the NRC to release the letter contents in full.
The next decision of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will either place the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and their mission into the “radioactive pile” of Southern California Edison’s despicable acts, while quite possibly making the SONGS catastrophe a reality by choosing that road, or they will release the non-redacted letter in full to the public for a cleansing by sunshine.
Again, this most important step in this movement is the release of the non-redacted letter that must be in the purview of the public.
If this letter is relegated to the dark rooms of corporatists and government profiteers this movement will have lost this battle.
The proof of a Global Nuclear Village and criminality lie within the letter.
Once the keystone is pulled, the entire structure falls.
That letter is the keystone to ending a global corporate-criminal Nuclear Village that is profiting along with global-corporate unaccountability, a patina of irreproachability that can be checked deftly by using this letter as the example of a true business-as-usual hubristic policy directed at all humanity, life in general and the future of our planet.
We need the full content of that letter.
Please make that our prime objective at the Feb. 12 meeting with the NRC.
The NRC has been put into the corner and it has little room to maneuver.
The choice of the NRC is no longer whether to grant permission to re-start at 70 percent. The wind has shifted.
The NRC either goes down with the mission in their choice to defend the criminal, or it recognizes the public mandate and releases the full content of the Mitsubishi letter.
Demand full documentation of the contents of the letter, non-redacted and in the full public purview.
The NRC meeting Tuesday starts at 6 p.m. at Capo Beach Church.
