Wasserman protests nuclear plant

(Conuied Irom Page 1)
which includes a rally at the
Fermi II site on Saturday.
The purpose of the Monroe
rally, Wasserman said, is to
raise the awareness of area
residents about nuclear power.
"It's important that people see
the site, the place is a wreck,
the natural environment has

prevented, "it would go along
way to stopping the nuclear
plant."
The developing movement
against nuclear power will
"shake the U. S. government
like it hasn't been shaken since
Vietnam," he said in a speech
at the Union last night.

power for its feature of private

utilities are terrified of them."
HE ADDED THAT nuclear
power plants do not create as
many jobs as other types of
energy producing methods, par-
ticularly solar energy which
can be installed by semi-skilled
laborers rather than requiring
large amounts of technological
knowledge for installation and
maintenance.
Wasserman also attacked
President Carter's - energy poli-
cy and his failure to live up to
a campaign promise of no fur-
ther construction of nuclear
power.

During his speech before
more than 200 persons at the
Union last night, Wasserman
touched briefly on the events
before and during the Seabrook
occupation. Although most of
those who occupied the con-
struction site were not part of
the Seabrook community, the
protesters received support
from the town of 5800.
"LOCAL PEOPLE IN New
Hampshire were happy to have

they were greeted by a col-
lector from the city water de-
partment who told Allen the
water in the building would be
turned off unless the landlord
paid the overdue water bill. The
water department employe
complained about the landlord,
Edith Epstein.
"It does not seem right that
I should turn the water off
here. I should go to the land-
lord's place and turn the water
off for her. She's been shut off
more than once for not paying
her bill."
Bullard wryly commented on
the house's condition: "Maybe
a tent would be just as good
during the summer."

THE SECOND house on the
tour was a building on S. Divi-
sion. Paul Teich, lawyer for the
Housing Law Reform Project,
said the facility was included on
the tour because "it is an ex-
ample of what a-rent strike can
gain for the students."
The tenants staged such a
strike for nearly two years in
an effort to obtain needed re-
pairs on the premises. Some
repairs were eventually made.
The third stop on the tour
was a large house on E. Kings-
ley. Bullard seemed genuinely
surprised at the rent and the
condition of the house,

Carter asks lower

said federal drug agents do not
actively pursue investigations
for simple possession of small
amounts of marijuana.
"When we go in thinking
there might be heroin or co-
caine and find small amounts
of marijuana, we normally re-
fer that to the state or local
authorities," the spokesperson
said.
Carter's proposal would sub-
stitute a 'civil fine, much like
a traffic ticket, foruexisting
criminal sanctions.
