The protesters say the current emergency plan is unacceptable because it doesn’t include a viable evacuation route in the event of an accident. 

The protest comes just two months after Gov. Deval Patrick wrote to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. He said the Plymouth plant should be decommissioned if it can’t follow safety regulations.

Pilgrim has been relicensed through 2032 and its operators say it is safe.
