A few people from our group were there a day before the concert to arrange for our booth and also meet a few of the stars in person at a special press conference. We had about ten volunteers to take turns at the booth during the concert, so everyone had a good chance to enjoy the show. Got a lot of traffic and interest in our activities all day long. I’d have to say that I enjoyed being around 17,000 other people who feel the same way I do about nuclear power as much as I enjoyed the great music.
The next day can be summed up in this press release…
For immediate release:
The day after the MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) anti-nuclear concert, more than 60 California groups met in San Mateo for the first statewide Anti- Nuclear post-Fukushima Summit. Participants committed to continuing work towards the shut-down of the Diablo Canyon and San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, both of which are immediately adjacent to major earthquake faults. In addition, summit members focused on energy conservation and clean, safe, renewable solutions to establish a nuclear-free California.
