Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant Protest Planned

Posted: Updated:

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — A new license term for Entergy Corp.'s Vermont Yankee nuclear plant is expected to be greeted this week with big protests.

Anti-nuclear activists say hundreds are expected for an event at midday Thursday in which protesters will march from the town common in Brattleboro to the local corporate offices of Entergy.

Organizers say they're planning for some of the participants to be arrested.

Brattleboro Police Chief Eugene Wrinn says his force is coordinating with the Vermont State Police and Windham County sheriff's office in preparing for the event.

The chief says his goal is for protesters to be able to exercise their First Amendment rights without anyone getting hurt.
