1980’s Campaign against Hinkley C

In 1981, the Central Electricity Generating board (CEGB) announced a possible extension of Hinkley Point, the following year plans were firmly set in place. One immediate response was the formation of the ‘Alliance against Hinkley C’. This was initially formed from an active anti-nuclear waste dumping campaign in Somerset from the 70’s and members of Friends of the Earth from Bristol.

Western Daily Press: Nuclear plants get the go-ahead on the day the West changed forever

The landscape of the West changed irrevocably yesterday as the Government made it the hub of the UK’s nuclear future.

The region is the only part of the country that will host two new nuclear power plants, ratcheting up to boiling point the already high tension between the opposing camps.

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne gave the green light to eight new reactors, including ones at both Hinkley Point in Somerset and Oldbury in South Gloucestershire.

This is the West Country: Protesters plan Hinkley Point blockade

By Matthew Colledge

ANTI-NUCLEAR campaigners are planning a massive blockade of Hinkley Point this autumn in protest at plans for C station.

Several anti-nuclear groups are uniting to blockade the nuclear power plant site on October 3.

Hinkley Point has been chosen for the gathering, described as a ‘Gandhi-style civil disobedience’, because it is the first of eight proposed UK sites for new nuclear builds.

The blockade is the first action of Stop New Nuclear – an alliance of local and national groups opposed to new nuclear stations.
