In Yesterdays New York Times….

“LONDON — There are few places in the West where companies that build nuclear plants are welcome to construct new ones. That lack of choice probably accounts for a lot of the appeal of a nearly 500-acre stretch of scrubland called Moorside near the Irish Sea in northwest England”.

Scrubland?    Ancient hedgerows, coppice, fertile fields and bounded by the River Ehen.  A huge area of land bigger than the already sprawling Sellafield site is being groomed as another nuclear sacrifice zone.  No More!  As Hadrian once said  “This far and NO further!”

Hadrian- This Far and No Further
Hadrian- This Far and No Further

WHAT YOU CAN DO…..RESIST!!  In any way possible without breaking the law

 

Put up banners NO TO MOORCIDE!

Put up the Moorcide Map in shops and Post Offices to show the extent of the madness.

Lobby Greenpeace UK and Friends of the Earth UK asking why their nuclear campaign policy is on a SOFT PEDAL here while in the rest of Europe they are PUSHING HARD TO STOP NUCLEAR

Lobby Cumbria Wildlife Trust to Oppose Moorcide

Lobby Friends of the Lake District to Oppose Moorcide

Lobby Cumbria Trust to Oppose Moorcide

 

Lobby all of these and more.  Keep Lobbying – they will say they have no resources for lobbying against the “lost cause” of nuclear – This is rubbish, no resources are needed to make strong statements opposing!   And the ONLY causes worth fighting for are those cunningly described  as “lost causes.”

The ancient hedgerows, fields, coppice, deer, badgers, wildlife, the river Ehen, the Irish Sea – our health and our children’s health,  none of these are a lost cause.  RESIST!

    This does not describe the agricultural land of the West Coast adjacent to Sellafield, There are lush fields (tainted by Sellafield but lush nevertheless) hedgerows coppice and diverse wildlife.
