Many thanks to the Bristol nuclear waste barrels for their epic journey to West Cumbria.  These are the ONLY nuclear barrels that we want in Cumbria but more of the REAL spent fuel is arriving by the week for insane reprocessing.

The barrels were worn by local West Cumbrians and by Bristolians alike.

The colourful demo made such a huge impact with people coming up to us to say how disgusted they were at the government coming back to Cumbria repeatedly to try to force a deep nuke dump or two or three on us.

The best quote of the night was from Professor Laurence Williams of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management when the microphone conked out : “its always the technology that lets us down”

Quite – thats what we think about the plan to use previously unused and scientifically impossible to predict “engineered barriers” 1000 metres underground with geology as the last line of defence when the barriers inevitably deteriorate.  The government is keen to show that “steady progress is being made in the implementation of geological disposal working within the underpinning principles of voluntarism and partnership with local communities”    WE SAID NO – AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
