Surround Springfields: April 27th 2019

Why Here? The worlds first nuclear fuel manufacturing plant, based in a small village near Preston, carries out civil and military nuclear contracts for facilities across the UK:

  • Production of nuclear fuel
  • Storage and processing of waste (including Uranium Hexafluoride DUF6)
  • Decommissioning of plant and facilities
Through the gates of the Springfields plant pass a deadly cargo of materials which have fuelled nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors and nuclear accidents for over 70 years. These materials pose a radiological and chemical threat to human health and to the environment.

Why Now? The Government is still pressing forward with its policy of new nuclear power, despite delays, spiralling costs and even bankruptcy of the major players. Springfields would play a pivotal role in supplying these and processing the waste material. The hunt for a Geological Disposal Facility (long term radioactive waste dump) is back on nationwide, with communities in Cumbria being targetted to ‘volunteer’ their back yard for this short sighted ‘solution’ to an intractable problem.

Radioactive material is transported to and from this site nationally and internationally via road and rail. We are inviting you to take this same journey to join us in the dirty core of the UK nuclear industry for a day of protest, information sharing and solidarity. We plan to surround the site with people dressed as nuclear waste barrels – a record breaking attempt!

Fighting new nuclear power stations in the UK

Stop New Nuclear in its tracks

Show the Government and the nuclear industry that we don’t want more waste, more risk and more lies in our communities. We can create all the energy we need from sustainable and safe renewable resources.
It’s not to late to have your say on this – people power can change everything.

No more Fukushimas - 10-11 March 2012: Blockade Hinkley Point

Surround and blockade Hinkley Point, Somerset

Hinkley Point is the first of eight proposed sites for nuclear new build to go ahead. We stopped them here before in 1987, and we can do it again in 2012. If they fail at Hinkley, it is unlikely the “nuclear renaissance” will have the momentum to continue.

On the 10th-11th March 2012, one year since the Fukushima nuclear disaster began, we will return to Hinkley to form a human chain around the station to show our determined opposition to new nuclear.

Date: 
Saturday, 10 March, 2012 - 18:00 to Sunday, 11 March, 2012 - 14:00

FUKUSHIMA:
The biggest industrial disaster in history.

Japan, has been brought to its knees by the ongoing events at Fukushima.
