The 14 citizens arrested on May 20 for protesting the ongoing operation and destruction caused by the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station will appear in Plymouth District Court tomorrow for a pre-trial hearing.
The “Pilgrim 14” were arrested May 20 at a rally and demonstration outside the Pilgrim station, which is operated by Entergy Nuclear Generating Corporation of Louisiana. The group was demonstrating in opposition of Entergy-Louisiana’s application for a 20-year operating license, which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved on May 25.
The Pilgrim 14 were arrested and charged with trespassing when they attempted to deliver a letter to Entergy-Louisiana. The arrest was peaceful and those charged cooperated with police.
“There is unity among the defendants and we want to send a very clear message to Entergy-Louisiana: the NRC wrongly issued you a license to operate and it’s time to stop your assault upon Plymouth and Massachusetts,” said David Agnew of Cape Downwinders. “We also want citizens to contact their state officials and let them know the NRC’s relicensing was reckless, irresponsible and unacceptable without resolving all the environmental and public safety contentions.”
The Pilgrim 14 will appear in Plymouth District Court, 52 Obery Street, Plymouth tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.
