Today the cull starts… or did it start already?

Please contact the RSPB …to oppose this cull of red deer which have been here since the ice age… Nuclear waste goes through here, from Heysham to Sellafield, near the newly erected shooting towers, is it a good idea to be shooting deer near these train tracks???

Save Leighton Moss Red Deer - Stop the Cull

Deer Cull Today! No!

We thought maybe the deer had a reprieve at least until we could make a case to stop the cull – and then we thought what if Leighton Moss want to get on and do the deed before any articles appear in the press.

So a couple of us went to Leighton Moss before dawn this morning planning to sit in the Grisdale and Jackson hide and watch out for the deer and any possible Deer Initiative people (the same who shot the Sellafield Deer ) who have been employed to do the shooting.   We got met by Robin Horner the centre manager just as we were going into the reserve – he said the way was blocked to the public because of “management activity”  …he was joined by another colleague who was repeating the line  that “its for the good of the whole reserve”   shortly after there was…

No Money for Nuclear Power – Stop Brussels Campaign

Mining Awareness +


Electricité de France (EdF), the French energy group, intends to build one of the largest nuclear power stations in the world at Hinkley Point, United Kingdom. However, this project would be commercially viable only on the basis of massive subsidies granted by the British government, which would clearly violate EU competition law.” The (previous) EU Commission approved these nuclear subsidies.

This scandalous decision has the potential to trigger an avalanche of new nuclear power projects across Europe. The Austrian government is determined to take this case to the European Court of Justice, and EWS has lodged a formal complaint directly with the EU Commission.

Yet only if the pressure of European civil society surpasses the clout of nuclear lobbyists will we be able to prompt the newly appointed EU Commission to reverse this misguided decision. Any EU citizen is entitled to submit a complaint free of charge…

Nuclear: There will soon come a time when it is too late
World Telegram & Sun photo by Phil Stanziola, 1964 , ML King, cropped
In Dr. Martin Luther King’s Nobel Prize Lecture, October of 1964, he raises the alarm over nuclear weapons and the constant threat of annihilation by nuclear weapons, as an “imminent cosmic elegy“. Ignoring the nuclear threat “does not alter the nature and risks of such war“, he warns. [1] In his speech at the Riverside Church, one year before his death, he further warns that there is such a thing as “too late“. [2]

Today we stand on the threshold of too late, with regard to nuclear reactors, even more than nuclear weapons.
70 yrs is enough Campaign;  modified from USG
Nuclear reactors and the related mining, processing and waste legally leak lethal radionuclides into the environment, all of the time, even without a major accident. Many of the most dangerous, like plutonium and americium, continue to build up in…

Government Corruption and Collusion led to the NMP Contract for the Obscene and Dangerous Gravy Train called Sellafield

In all the handwringing in the last few days on the termination of the Nuclear Management Partners lucrative Sellafield contract, perhaps the most nauseating and hypocritical is that by Jamie Reed MP.  He tweeted "Sellafield NMP contract terminated. Inevitable, necessary and overdue". In 2008 when MP Paul Flynn quite rightly questioned the huge sums of money …
