OREPA to challenge NNSA’s new bomb plant decision

We need your help!

At a special called meeting on Monday, October 5, OREPA’s Board of Directors, after reviewing our options carefully, decided to ask Judge Pamela Reeves to vacate the NNSA’s new, hasty, completely vacuous Amended Record of Decision and require NNSA to complete the environmental analysis ordered by the Judge in late September before continuing with their enriched uranium plan.

We have engaged Eubanks & Associates LLC, the law firm that won our two-year battle against NNSA, to pursue enforcement of the judge’s decision.

While our legal firm has graciously offered us a significant non-profit discount and established a maximum cap on the fees we will be charged, we still need to raise approximately $20,000 for this legal challenge. We are asking people who are able to invest in this effort to put teeth in the judge’s ruling to make a donation today”you can make a secure donation with paypal or a credit card by clicking the Donate button here. Or you can mail a check to OREPA, P O Box 5743, Oak Ridge, TN 37831.

Winning the lawsuit was a great accomplishment, and it was a group effort”hundreds of people contributed to our crowd-funding effort. We believe this next step is necessary to make our victory meaningful. Please join us if you can!



Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at orep@earthlink.net or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
