Our Keynote speaker Ernest Sternglass, speaks at 1PM and shows graphs on downwind health effects following nuclear testing and reactor operations. Ernest is a brilliant man with both practical and theoretical understanding. He had a 5-hour conversation with Einstein once. He is 82 but looks and acts 62, here from Pittsburg.

Ray Shadis, the Technical Advisor for the New England Coalition will speak about the particular hazards of the proposed power uprate at New England’s oldest reactor. Ray is from Maine and can answer questions about how a thorough safety assessment of the Maine Yankee reactor, proclaimed to be well maintained, was shut down after a thorough safety assessment.

Survive and thrive at panel discussions and workshops on topics such as Evacuation Planning, Radiation Monitoring, and the Powers of Nonviolent Action.

We willingly address realities and what will move us toward solutions as a society.

Treat yourself to the panel discussion on healing and recovery. We are excited that author Alice Epstein, “Mind, Fantasy, and Healing” will join us and bring some of her out-of-print book describing her recovery from cancer. After being given a diagnosis of cancer and as little as a year to survive, X-rays showed that her kidney cancer had already spread to the lungs. Diet, exercise, meditation and therapy were her chosen treatments, about ten years ago.
Claudia Sperber will show us acupressure for health maintenance. Kathleen Becker demonstrates Breema massage, for a little heaven on earth.

Take US91 & 2-West, turn north onto Colrain Rd. and proceed to the beautiful campus of Greenfield Community College. We’d love to hear you’re coming.
