Shut It Down Affinity Group actions in the week of April 15-22.
Shut It Down Affinity Group held actions daily at Vermont Yankee in the week of April 15-22. In small groups of 2, 3 or 4 women, they walked onto Yankee property and read statements at the inside gate before being arrested by Vernon police. Organizers chose this week in order to honor the 50th aniversary of Martin Luther King., Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” on the necessity of repeated resistance to evil.
