Meet the Nuclear Fockers, Lillyhall

MEET THE NUCLEAR FOCKERS, private companies taking government contracts to dump radioactive waste – LILLYHALL, CUMBRIA
25th August 2013 ​

Radiation Free Lakeland held a DEMO outside Lillyhall Industrial Estate, Jubilee Rd entrance from 11am till 12noon to protest the dangerous and immoral nuclearisation of a previously nuclear free area of Cumbria. At Lillyhall, there is now a laundry taking in Sellafield’s dirty washing, a radioactive scrap metal yard and a landfill that the EU describe as a nuclear waste ‘repository’ i.e. dump.

None of these things were approved by people or businesses living in the area, all of them were sanctioned by the regulatory bodies supposed to be acting as watchdogs.

RaFL then went to Workington Town Centre where around 100 people signed a letter to Cumbrian MP and member of Parliament Tim Farron asking him to protect our freshwater fromthe inhumane release of radiation to groundwater. “Exempt” nuclear waste means an uncontrolled and uncontrollable avalanche of radioactive waste from smashed up ‘decommissioned’ nuclear plants to be dumped in our landfill.
