Paul Gunter, former member of the Clamshell Alliance and current Director of theReactor Oversight Project for "Beyond Nuclear", shares his thoughts about the  Paul Gunter, director of Reactor Oversight Project with Beyond Nuclear: We were involved in an Nuclear Regulatory Commission [NRC] hearing on July 28 of this year where the NRC basically admitted that fuel fragments found over one and a half miles away from the facility did not come from explosions from the spent fuel pools, according to the NRC those fuel fragments were ejected from the reactor cores in those explosions.

Initiated by Renny Cushing, a founding member of the Clamshell Alliance, the original New England-based anti-nuclear movement created in the 1970s, eight individuals, some members of Cushing’s original affinity group, traveled to New Orleans to mount a surprise occupation inside the Entergy offices. Hanging banners and applying yellow police crime scene tape to the glass entrance, the eight refused to leave when ordered by police and were arrested. But who are the real criminals here? ....

As Paul Gunter of Takoma Park, who was arrested alongside Cushing in New Orleans and was also a Clamshell Alliance founder, observed: “It’s got to the point where if we really want to change anything, we’ve got to stand up and be counted. The Occupy movement has shown us that.
