Today in Kendal anti-nuclear groups, Cumbria and Lancashire area CND and Radiation Free Lakeland remembered the Chernobyl disaster.

People in Kendal were keen to sign a giant postcard to the Lake District National Park Authority who have given the thumbs up to a giant nuclear dump or two under Cumbria and in just one and half hours 90 people wrote to the National Park saying:

To the Lake District National Park Authority,

Nuclear Wastes Deep Under Lakeland?

‘Belarus’ means ‘Beautiful Land.’ Today is the anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster in that beautiful land. The Lake District is a beautiful land too but that is no protection from radiation. Eminent scientists are warning that in our lifetime:
“Emplacement of hot wastes will force rock to expand, with the strong probability that new fractures will be created. The fractures can allow radioactive gas to rapidly leak to the surface. Land users and housing at the land surface will be uplifted”
Prof Stuart Hazseldine OBE

Please reconsider your support for this plan and instead support all those communities in the Lake District who are calling for the ‘geological disposal’ plan to be scrapped.

MANY THANKS TO RUSKINS CAFE BAR FOR SUPPLYING US WITH HOT DRINKS!
