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!

CAMPAIGNERS against proposals to build a new nuclear power station at Shepperdine are planning a protest march through the streets of Thornbury.

Members of Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy (SANE) will be taking the action next month.

The See the Light protest will coincide with a meeting being held in the town by Horizon, the company behind plans to build a new nuclear power station in the district.

The company is holding the meeting to keep local people up to date with its plans and to provide information about the planning process. Reg Illingworth, chairman of SANE, said: "The people of the villages of the Severn Vale and the town of Thornbury know that what the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is proposing is wrong on so many grounds. It is reassuring to have the support of South Gloucestershire Council and numerous politicians.

"We invite everybody with any concerns to join our protest on the evening. It is still by no means certain that the government will listen to us in their rush to rectify the damage done by doing nothing about filling the energy gap for far too long.

"It will be for a maximum of one hour. It could help save our community. Your support is valued."

SANE is a newly formed group of local residents living close to the nominated site referred to in the DECC draft National Policy Statement for Energy (NPS).

Campaigners plan to meet outside Thornbury Town Hall at 6.15pm on Thursday, March 4.

The protesters, carrying placards, torches, candles and other forms of light, will then walk through Thornbury towards Cossham Hall where Horizon is holding its public meeting.

Messages and images will also be projected onto the sides of buildings in the town in support of the campaign.
