Ditch the Dump Demo- Bowness 19th Jan

Ditch the Nuke Dump! Demo -19th Jan at Bowness Bay

Today despite the freezing cold conditions campaigners from Bowness, Keswick and Silloth in
Cumbria to Bridgwater in Somerset will ramp up opposition to the
government plan for a nuke dump under Cumbria.

In Bowness this morning over 100 people turned up to show their support for Cumbria County Council voting NO on the 30th January. Over 100 letters were signed to put on a giant postcard to the Leader of Cumbria County Council. There was life affirming music provided by Handbrake Shirley and a great atmosphere of camaraderie in our determination to stop the government’s insane plan to turn Cumbria into a nuclear sacrifice zone.

Dear Eddie Martin,
Geological Dumping of Nuclear Waste
On 30th January you are going to take the most important decision of any
Cumbria County Council Leader before you. Your decision will speak for the
whole of Cumbria, which has been misrepresented as a “willing community.”
To say ‘yes’ would mean unquantifiable damage to the ‘brand’ of Cumbria.
The real cost, however, would be psychological and physical trauma through
countless generations, as Cumbria would be increasingly and irreversibly
blighted.
Say NO – end this mad plan now. Then all money and expertise can go into
ensuring the existing wastes are looked after safely on the 6km Sellafield
site rather than expanding and increasing the danger to ever more waste
over a much increased area.
