  • 30-sec TV Spot Catch it on MSNBC. Thank you Friends of the Earth!
  • On Wednesday, Southern California Edison (SEC) admitted that Unit 2 had the same unusual wear as Unit 3 (the one the blew a tube) meaning it will be very difficult to turn on Unit 3 before understanding the problem, as had been suggested as one option by NRC Secretary Gregory Jaczko at the press conference.
  • Regarding the press conference -- 20/20 hindsight says our action would have been better not at the San Onofre plant, but in the street outside the Doubletree Hotel where Chairman Jaczko already had all the media, and people could easily see, park, etc.
  • Next anti-nuke rally slated for April 29 (Sun) A29 San Onofre Protest and Rally to commemorate Chernobyl disaster of 1986-04-26. Can you help us make this event even larger than the ]]M11SanOnofreProtestAndRally\][last one]]?

Media

2012 Apr 17

Media: Occupy San Diego

Media: Occupy National and Global

  • If 25,000 people rally in midtown, is that a story? vThe Occupy movement, active all winter, has been mostly ignored by the press. Now, along with other groups, it is stepping up its rallies and protests against corporate influence and militarism in America. Will there be any press coverage to speak of?

  • 9 Strategies to End Corporate Rule Corporate power is behind the politics of climate denial, Wall Street bailouts, union busting, and media consolidation, to name just a few. And policies advocated by the 1 percent are bankrupting the middle class. But real people have power, too. Here are some of their most successful strategies.

  • Exposing ALEC: How Conservative-Backed State Laws Are All Connected To itself, ALEC is an organization dedicated to the advancement of free market and limited government principles through a unique "public-private partnership" between state legislators and the corporate sector. To its critics, it's a shadowy back-room arrangement where corporations pay good money to get friendly legislators to introduce pre-packaged bills in state houses across the country. Started in the mid-1970s, ALEC's existence has been long known but its practices, largely, have not; the group hasn't been eager to tie its bills in Wisconsin to those in Ohio to those in North Carolina.

  • Why a Fair Economy is Not Incompatible with Growth but Essential to It One of the most pernicious falsehoods you'll hear during the next seven months of political campaigning is there's a necessary tradeoff between fairness and economic growth. By this view, if we raise taxes on the wealthy the economy can't grow as fast. Wrong. Taxes were far higher on top incomes in the three decades after World War II than they've been since. And the distribution of income was far more equal. Yet the American economy grew faster in those years than it's grown since tax rates on the top were slashed in 1981.

  • Revolution In Europe “This spontaneous and popular movement is not swayed by any political organization, but is propelled by and is a response to the national and collective urge from our hearts. We can produce democratic, fair laws to end extreme poverty…” These sentiments can be heard at any given Occupy rally, but they were spoken in Spain. They could have also come from Greece, or Ireland, or Italy, or any of the European countries where social services and fair wages have been strangled by extreme austerity measures. The renaissance of activism that’s swept this country was sparked far from our shores.

  • Occupy the movie OCCUPY THE MOVIE will document the Occupy movement’s first year with gritty detail, while exploring its origins, purpose, and future. It will be like no other film you’ve seen, intercutting the dramatic handheld footage of protestors with candid interviews of the movement’s leaders and enemies.
