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!

Silent Protest Planned For DECC Meeting at Thornbury on the 6th February

We are planning a silent protest for the 6th February at the Leisure Centre in Thornbury 30 minutes before the meeting with DECC to emphasise the point that we need to be listened to and not just heard.

The format will be very similar to Hinkley--- You are welcome to attend.

We are hoping that press and media will be attending the Protest.

Silent Protest over Hinkley illustrates fear of Being Stifled

With mouths symbolically gagged with tape, demonstrators opposing a new fast track planning process for the proposed new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point showed how they believe that public involvement will be stifled.. . .

Stop Hinkley spokesman Jim Duffy said "The final decision about this major project - the largest nuclear power plant ever proposed in the UK - will be made by a government quango, the Infrastucture Planning Commission. the IPC is an unelected body whose members have been appointed by the government to implement its energy policy. This policy is in favour of new nuclear build.

When the last Hinkley C proposal was made in the late 1980s there was a public enquiry which lasted for many months and allowed local people a proper voice. Somerset County, West Somerset and Sedgmoor Councils were all involved.

But this time there will be no local hearings and no guarantees that local people will have a voice in the IPC proceedings, which will be held in London."
