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!

Antipodeans show the world lead in nuclear!

Following Bovis Lend Lease and their annoucement about withdrawing from the unethical nuclear industry we can see that our Antipodean friends again are showing the lead.

This is significant as Australia is a country that is full of mines and quarries but understand the full horror of nuclear!


There is plenty of uranium in Australia. Problem is the Australians see it as the "new asbestos". So much so that Aussie unions have banned their members on ethical and safety grounds from working in all aspects of the nuclear industry, from mining to power plants. The Electrical Trade Union is equivalent to our Unite (representing members in the electrical, communications, power, manufacturing, education, hospitality, aerospace and food industries). The unprecedented stand taken this summer by the ETU has been shied away from by the British press despite the ethical and practical implications for the future of the nuclear industry. There are plenty of ways to produce sustainable electricity and energy efficiency while leaving the uranium in the ground. The line drawn in the sand by the E! TU is of great significance to all our futures.

  1. Maybe we better all emigrate to Australia. At least they have the sense to abandon this dirty unhealthy form of energy. Despite the fact that they could have resourced it themselves they choose to protect their county for future generations... well done to the Aussies
