New Nuclear group plans protests against Hinkley expansion
opposed to the UK's government's nuclear expansion programme are
planning a series of events at Hinkley Point power station near
From September 11th, the Stop New Nuclear group will be holding
a series of events to highlight what they claim are the dangers
of nuclear power and to demand safer alternatives.
This will culminate in a mass blockade of Hinkley Point power
station on October 3rd.
"The media spotlight may have moved away from Fukushima
but radiation continues to pour out of the power plant, contaminating
the air, soil and sea," claimed Nikki Clark, spokesperson
for the Stop New Nuclear alliance, on Friday.
"If Germany can commit itself to a nuclear-free future using
bridging technologies like combined heat and power (CHP), why
cant we? We urge people in the UK to join us to protest
against EDF Energys preparations to build two mega-reactors
at Hinkley Point."
