The persistent non-violent determination of No Nukes activists in Vermont and New Hampshire won a victory in August when Entergy Corp. announced that the Vermont Yankee reactor will be shut down by the end of 2014. Activists had garnered the overwhelming support of the people of Vermont and the state legislature. A key vote in the Vermont Senate in favor of shut-down was 26-4! This is the fifth U.S. reactor shut-down announced this year.
