Residents rally to close Indian Point at annual safety meeting

Residents called for the closure of the Indian Point plant today during a meeting in Cortlandt Manor to allow the Nuclear Regulatory Commission the chance to update the public about whether safety procedures are being followed at the plant.

The meeting was part of the government's annual review of the power plant. People from more than 10 organizations arrived wearing costumes and holding signs with the hope of convincing officials to shut down Indian Point.

Officials said the plant is safe but most protesters say they are wary after watching the nuclear meltdown take place in Fukishima, Japan following the earthquake and tsunami.
