Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Greenpeace Project KAPOW on to Oldbury Power Station!!!!

Can anybody remember this incident of a few years ago? In fact in March 2006!

If plans go ahead for the new breed of Nuclear Power Megaliths then ,according to DECC , high grade nuclear waste will be stored above ground for up to 150 years.

This will give the opportunity for extreme terrorists to either steal the waste or fire a missile into the store and release radiation into the atmosphere for many eons to come.

Would the additional security required be supplied by Horizon? or would they have to pay for the additional nuclear civil police required?

People of the South West, in fact all of humanity, need to know:-

Greenpeace Anti-Nuclear Action Hits Oldbury

Greenpeace projected a huge 'Kapow' onto the Oldbury nuclear site to highlight the risk of a terrorist attack on Britain's nuclear power stations
An enormous 'KAPOW!' was projected onto Oldbury nuclear site earlier this morning by Greenpeace volunteers - to highlight the risk of a terrorist attack on Britain's nuclear power stations.
The Greenpeace projection comes at a time when the Government is conducting an Energy Review to decide whether or not a new generation of nuclear reactors should be built in the UK. Yet just last month Greenpeace released a dossier of expert evidence which outlined the vulnerability of the UK's current nuclear sites to terrorist attack. It details:
- How UK nuclear power stations are not built to withstand a deliberate crash by a jumbo jet full of highly explosive aviation fuel.
- How terrorist groups are known to be targeting nuclear sites. For instance detailed plans of UK nuclear sites were found in a car linked to the July 2005 London bombings.
- How the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission sent a confidential memo to all US nuclear power plants warning of plans for a terrorist attack in which hijackers 'fly a commercial aircraft into a nuclear power plant'.
Greenpeace has also recently released a film via the internet highlighting the risks of nuclear power. The short film shows a family enjoying a day on a beach, filmed for posterity by the father. An ever-louder roar breaks the tranquility, and the hand-held camera pans to the sky to track a jumbo jet heading directly towards a nuclear facility just a few hundred metres away.
Sarah North, head of Greenpeace's nuclear campaign, said: "Millions of people could die as a result of a terrorist attack on a nuclear plant. Yet Tony Blair has put the prospect of building these extremely dangerous facilities back on the agenda, seemingly without a thought for the safety of the public. Nuclear power is simply the wrong answer to climate change."
The image was projected in the early morning from outside the fences surrounding the site.
