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!

Nuclear Industry is now Sponsoring "Made in Cumbria"

Jobs are more important than nature....the crazy human being will destroy the earth!

Made in Cumbria - now funded by the nuclear and arms industry

Made in Cumbria members learnt on Monday by email that they will be funded

wholly by the nuclear and the arms trade industry. Made in Cumbria was

established in 1989 as an economic development initiative by Cumbria

County Council to promote the sales of crafts, gifts and local foods.

The nuclear industry's tentacles are securing an ever tighter grip on

Lakeland -

now Made in Cumbria has succumbed and has been handed over from County

Council ownership to the tender care of Sellafield Ltd and BAE Systems

who wholly fund the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce. While Sellafield Ltd

and the nuclear industry has the funds to buy passive acceptance - it does

not have the wherewithal to cover its own public liability insurance

regarding the High Level Waste tanks. The hazard is so great that no

insurance company would be able to provide cover. Nuclear insurance

subsidy is a bigger scandal than MPs expenses and Radiation Free Lakeland

have written to Tim Farron asking him to support a Parliamentary Motion

calling for an end to nuclear subsidies.

The motion EDM 866 from Paul Flynn, the MP for Newport West, states that the

nuclear industry insists it is looking for "no subsidies for any new

nuclear plants they may build in Britain; believes that comments by such

chief executives are disingenuous and misleading because many nuclear

subsidies paid for by British taxpayers are already in place, including

the multi-billion pound underwriting of insurance liabilities.."

As a working wildlife artist Marianne Birkby has been a long time member

of Made in Cumbria who have provided a good service to members.

" I am appalled to be an involuntary part of an organisation funded by

the nuclear and arms industry. Made in Cumbria funding should come

directly from central/local government not taxpayers money filtered

through the nuclear industry in a bid to buy passive acceptance. I won't be renewing my

membership when it runs out".
