1981-The Michigan Daily
Anti-nuke protestors
gather to blockade plant

, .,,
a UZ <

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP)-
The ranks of anti-nuclear activists
reached an estimated 1,400 yesterday,
with more trickling in every hour, but
the timetable for blockading the
seaside Diablo Canyon nuclear power
plant was not revealed.
"The stream of protesters is really
coming in strong," said Mark Evanoff,
25, of the Abalone Alliance, which is
coordinating the long-awaited confron-
tation.
SAN LUIS OBISPO County Under-
sheriff Arnie Goble estimated 1,400 ac-
tivists had checked in with the Alliance
by late afternoon.
"The numbers are growing slowly
but surely," Goble said. "So far, things
are quiet."
The Alliance, which has required
demonstrators to undergo training in
non-violent protest, insists the confron-
tation will be peaceful but potent. The

group has declined to say publicly how
many people would constitute the
"strategic number" needed to begin the
protest.
PROTESTERS assembled at a can-
vas village in the Los Osos Valley near
here after a U.S. Nuclear Regulatory
Commission appeal board approved
Pacific Gas & Electric Co.'s security
plan for the $2.3 billion plant. That
cleared the way for an interim low-
power test license, which the full com-
mission will now consider.
As a solar-powered public address
system played music Saturday,
monitors were screening those who
tried to enter the tent city by asking for
their red' "Blockade Diablo" buttons
and blue camp passes.
Evanoff said only graduates of an
eight-hour nonviolence training
program would be allowed to join the
blockage.

THE SAN LUIS Obispo County
Telegram-Tribune reported Saturday
that Steve MacElvaine, chairman of
the county supervisors, will ask the
board to discuss the camp Monday.
"I'm getting a lot of phone calls about
it from people.. . concerned that we're
giving special privileges to the
blockaders," MacElvaine said.
County planning director Paul
Crawford said the 30-acre campsite, on
land loaned by a farmer, is zoned for
agricultural use. Camping is permitted
for 12 days-a period that would end
Sept. 21, when the NRC has scheduled
its vote on the interim license.
THE COMMISSION, which is expec-
ted to approve the permit, will decide
later on a full-power operating license
for the twin-reactor plant, located 12
miles from this city of 35,000 people.
Sheriff's deputies were prepared for
the protest, said Capt. Arnie Goble.
Local officers were reinforced by 58
Highway Patrol officers and 500
National Guardsmen were assembled
at CampSan Luis Obispo.
Evanoff, 25, of San Francisco, said
protesters planned to use their bodies to
block access to the reactor complex, a
tightly guarded compound on the rocky
coastline. The plant-is surrounded by
fences and patroled by. armed guards
with dogs and will not be approached,
protestors said.
But, Evanoff said, "There will be
people outside the gates and just inside
the gates and some people will be
hiking in by various routes. Some will
be landing by sea."~
He said the blockade would go on'"as
long as we can ... that's going to be up
to the sheriff's department." He said
people were scheduled to arrive later to
replace those arrested.

Police said 43 people were injured 'Aid
148 protestors arrested in the worst
violence related to a sporting event in
New Zealand's history.
DESPITE ALL the pandemonium,

The South African team, the
Springboks, leaves today for a tour of
the United States, where more demon-
strations are expected to protest the
appearance of - a team from racit,'
white minority-ruled South Africa.
"We may have lost the battle, but we
have won the- war," said protest'
organizer John Minto. "No government
in its right mind will allow a Springbok
team to tour New Zealand again."
ALTHOUGH THEY failed to stop the
game, the protestors did manage to
black out television coverage of the
match to South Africa and much of New
Zealand by slashing TV cables.,
Scores of nations have threatened to
boycott the 1984 Olympics in Los
Angeles if the South African team is
allowed to play exhibition matches in
the United States.
Ac'kland police said some 2,000 people
protesting South Africa's officially
racist apartheid system massedioutside
the Eden Park stadium for the match,
which marked the end of the
Springboks'.seven-week tour.
THEY CHARGED police lines with:
rocks, bricks, bats, and gasoline bom
bs. Twenty-six protestors and 17
policemen were taken to hospitals for
treatment of injuries including broken
bones.
Two protestors dropped flares,
leaflets, and smoke and flour bombs on
the playing field from a single-engine
Cessna. Angered by the disruption of
the game, the 49,000 spectators in the'
stadium tried to hurl bottles and other
objects at the plane.
ONE FLOUR bomb hit New Zealand
player Gary Knight on the head and
knocked him down; but he quickly got
up, shook his head and continued
playing.
Police said they arrested a man and a
woman who got out of the plane when it
landed at a city flying club.
Protestors severed a cable leading to
a satellite earth station near Auckland,:
disrupting television transmission ofN
(he match to South Africa. In Christ
church, television cables were slashed;'
cutting off transmission of the game to,
most of New Zealand's south island. .
