Berkeley’s City Council (BCC) has rescheduled a vote on the anti-nuclear resolution before it for June 19th. Rather than the short notice we had prior to 5/29 there is now more time to get people out for this important vote. Please email Berkeley City Council members — even if you don’t live in Berkeley. Call them too if you are in Berkeley. It takes less than a minute to send a message directly from this page. (See below.) Though Berkeley is a Nuclear Free Zone, this is a surprisingly controversial vote for the Council because one of its Members, a scientist who has been affiliated with Lawrence Labs and known to sign his correspondence, “Radioactive and Proud,” has been speaking out in the press against Berkeley’s Nuclear Free Zone provisions. Please help spread the word. The Action Alert is here: http://www.nuclearfreecal.org/nfcnet/2012/05/alertberkeley/
