ETC:
In 1973 Harvey helped coin the phrase “No Nukes” and helped found the global grassroots movement against atomic energy, for which he has spoken and organized throughout the US, Asia and Europe ever since.
In 1976-8 he helped coordinate mass non-violent demonstrations against reactors being built in Seabrook, New Hampshire. In 1979 he was part of the legendary Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) No Nukes Concerts in Madison Square Garden and sister rally at Battery Park City. He edited the informational booklet that accompanied the gold triple NO NUKES album.
In 1982 Harvey co-wrote (with Norman Solomon, Bob Alvarez & Eleanor Walters) KILLING OUR OWN: THE DISASTER OF AMERICA’S EXPERIENCE WITH ATOMIC ENERGY, documenting that people died at Three Mile Island.
In 1990 he became Senior Advisor to Greenpeace USA, for whom he spoke to 350,000 semi-conscious rock fans at Woodstock 2 in 1994. In Kiev in 1996 he spoke at the tenth anniversary commemoration of the Chernobyl disaster, and then in Kaliningrad, in the former Soviet Union, where he met with “liquidators” whose lives and health had been sacrificed in the Chernobyl clean-up. He’s still a Greenpeace Voting Member.
In central Ohio, Harvey co-founded the Great Blue Heron Alliance, which saved 240 acres of land for a wildlife refuge and other grassroots organizations which forced shut a trash-burning power plant, stopped a regional radioactive waste dump, shut a McDonald’s and saved the city of Bexley’s Jeffrey Park.
With Dan Juhl, Harvey co-wrote “Harvesting Wind Energy as a Cash Crop,” a guide for farmer/community-owned renewables.  Harvey worked with the Prairie Island Coalition in Minnesota to help spawn more than $400 million in wind power investments.
In 2004 Harvey and Bob Fitrakis broke many of the major stories on the theft of the 2004 presidential election in Ohio. Called “the Woodward and Bernstein” of election protection by Rev. Jackson Jackson, Bob and Harvey have published numerous books and articles on the American art of vote counting and curtailment.
In 2007 Harvey joined with Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Graham Nash to form NukeFree.org as part of a successful national grassroots campaign to stop $50 billion in loan guarantees to build new reactors. Harvey now edits the www.nukefree.org website which posts a constant stream of articles on nuclear power and green energy. He continues to campaign for a green-powered Earth, against federal atomic funding and all other new nuke boondoggles, against the drug war, and for a system of automatic voter registration and universal hand counted paper ballots—key elements on the road to Solartopia.
On the morning of March 11, 2011, Harvey was among the first to go viral with news of the Fukushima disaster, about which he continues to speak and write regularly.  In 1976-7 Harvey marched in Japan against the Fukushima reactors, and wrote about them in the Progressive Magazine in 1977.

    Hi Harvey,
    If you have someway of helping my continuing free speech efforts, it would be wonderful. There are excellent reasons of course, and I am an interesting story. Some of it is here:
    Free Speech Drama!
    They threw my ‘free speech’ display into the Bay! My world’s largest free speech display, which began and finished in Venice Beach from 1993-2006, and then taken to Port Townsend, Wa. in 2007, after several years of displaying, was ‘censored’ by local politicians (city council), announced in the March 2014 edition of the local paper followed days later by ‘someone’ throwing all 42 dry erase boards, 9 tables, 2 hauling carts, artist easels, etc. into Admirality Bay which is between the Pacific Ocean and Puget Sound of Seattle.
    14 times I’ve been to court including once in the Washington State Appeal court only to be left with an April 13, 2016 verdict in the District Court of a fine, and one year probation to keep my display confined to a 4′ x 6′ (5′ height limit) or face 90 days in jail! I continue downsized in compliance several times per week knowing that the censorship could be about ‘anything’ in reality.
    Free speech in America continues being like the frog in the water that keeps slowly getting hotter until the frog is dead.
    My main goal is to expose this First Amendment travesty in perhaps America’s most open (?) small town (popular tourist town of 9,200) and influence the growth of free speech to make America greater and a symbol of free expression for the world.
    We are undergoing what looks to be a political revolution. Will you investigate and do a story?!
    Thank you,
    Arhata~
    PS: I have done my display ongoing and over 230 times so far this year
    Information:
