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!

Power to The People Latest

10am-3pm, Cossham Hall, Chapel Street, Thornbury BS35 2BJ
Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy are pleased to invite you to a series of lectures - an ideal opportunity to learn what The Department of Energy and Climate Change and the developer, Horizon Nuclear Power, have planned for The Severn Vale.
Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy (SANE) take to the streets of Thornbury, South Gloucestershire, to protest against the development of new nuclear at Shepperdine and beyond.
Our theme for the day is "Power to the People" and features a new 3 minute youtube film with John Lennon's immortal music!
The people of SANE "will take to the streets" to emphasise the need for "Power, energy/electricity" to be taken away from Global Players and for local communities to create their own "Power".
We will mobilise our members to be present before the official start time of 10am. with signs and banners etc. and there will be a march in a loop around the centre of Thornbury.
  • Reg Illingworth - Opening comments and thanks from our chairman.
  • Professor Steve Thomas, University of Greenwich Business School: “New nuclear: Unfinanceable, unlicensable and unbuildable?”.
  • Dr Ian Fairlie Independent consultant on radioactivity in the environment. Dr Fairlie will talk about the increased incidence of leukemias near nuclear power stations.
  • Professor Andrew Blowers, Research Professor at the OU, author of “The International Politics Of Nuclear Waste”. Professor Blowers will talk about the legacy of nuclear waste on future generations.
  • Professor Gareth Williams, A resident of Rockhampton. “Not just in our backyard”
  • Professor Tom Burke, Environment adviser to Rio Tinto PLC and Visiting Professor at Imperial and University Colleges, London. A Senior Business Advisor to the Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative on Climate change. Professor Burke will cover the energy policy ground – how new nuclear won’t help with energy or climate security and the risk of policy failure.
Contact to reserve a seat: 07796 447 880 or email below.
After the lectures, people will be marching from Cossham Hall around Thornbury to express to DECC SANE's feelings about the Shepperdine Site's suitability for construction.
SANE will hold a Christmas Party in the evening with live music to which any members of the group or media are welcome. The party will be in Shepperdine, very close to the proposed site.
