Global anti-nuclear protests mark six month anniversary of Fukushima on 9/11

Campaigners opposed to the UK’s government’s ‘nuclear renaissance’ will be taking part in a global wave of action in support of communities in Japan who are calling for an end to nuclear power.

This year, September 11th marks two disasters. Not only will the spotlight turn to the US and the tenth anniversary of 9/11 but also to the hundreds of thousands who have been affected by the nuclear catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant since it began exactly six months ago.

Nuclear power plant decision branded a travesty by campaigners

Anti-nuclear campaigners have slammed a council’s decision to allow EDF Energy to begin clearing land earmarked for a nuclear reactor. And they pledged to step-up their campaign of direct action against the energy giant.

Activists from the Stop New Nuclear network branded West Somerset Council’s decision yesterday to allow EDF to start bulldozing 400 acres next to Somerset’s Hinkley Point nuclear power station as a ‘circus and a travesty’. The planning committee’s decision paves the way for preparatory work to begin on the Hinkley C mega-reactor.

Activists slam government decision on 'new nuclear' power

An anti-nuclear alliance has branded the government’s decision to give the green light to a new generation of nuclear power stations as, ‘grossly irresponsible’. And the campaigners have vowed to step up plans for a mass blockade of Hinkley Point nuclear power station this autumn.

Speaking as the House of Commons today debates the government’s National Policy Statement on the construction of ten new nuclear power reactors, Nikki Clark, a spokesperson for Stop New Nuclear said:

Mass blockade of Hinkley nuclear power station announced

With Italy being the latest European country to reject nuclear power, a coalition of anti-nuclear groups in Britain has announced plans to hold a mass non-violent blockade of Hinkley Point nuclear power station on 3rd October. The plant, near Bridgwater in Somerset, is expected to be the site of the first new nuclear power station, if current plans go ahead.
