Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima

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!

Opposition builds in attempt to stop the 'nuclear juggernaut'

We Brits are like lambs to the slaughter between a desperate Government and foreign multi national power companies who are not being allowed to develop in their domestic markets.

Opposition builds in attempt to stop the 'nuclear juggernaut'

Sunday, 17 January 2010

South Lakeland anti nuclear group Radiation Free Lakeland has been invited to give oral evidence to the Parliamentary Select Committee Inquiry on the Future of the Nuclear Industry.
Marianne Birkby (pictured) founder of the group will be giving evidence on Wednesday, January 27 in Westminster.

She said: “The nuclear juggernaught will only be stopped by people saying no – as people are doing in Germany where 50,000 people of all walks of life , including convoys of farmers on tractors marched in Berlin opposing the proposed extension of the life of existing nuclear plants - no one in Germany is proposing new build and certainly no country in the world is proposing such a blanket nuclear sacrifice zone in such a small area as the UK government".

There are a growing number of voices opposing the new nuclear build proposed for the North West, with three of the sites in west Cumbria.
As well as Radiation Free Lakeland these voices include Cumbria Wildlife Trust and The Nuclear Free Local Authorities Secretariat (based in Manchester).
Cumbria Wildlife Trust have "grave concerns" about the negative wildlife impacts of new nuclear power stations on Cumbrian and North Lancashire's land and marine environments.
The Nuclear Free Local Authorities have written to the Select Committee, and one of their many serious concerns is that the 'expression of interest'in 'geological disposal' of high level nuclear waste by Cumbrian councils is a sham
They say Cumbrians could be forced to accept more than one high level waste dump. They also say nuclear power makes climate change far worse.
Radiation Free Lakeland agree and have been saying this since 2008.

They make the point that for Cumbria to have a viable, diverse and healthy future the county should withdraw from the sham 'volunteer' process now and say a strong NO to 'geological disposal' and new builld
