On 27th January at The Beacon, Radiation Free Lakeland will be holding a demonstration opposing the dumping of radioactive debris from 27 nuclear submarines at Sellafield.
We will meet at 11am – 2pm outside The Beacon in Whitehaven…
with our alternative exhibition and information. There may be singing!…but its not compulsory – just bring yourselves and say NO to Nuclear Submarine Dumping at Sellafield!
Any old subs, any old subs, any any old subs?
They look naff – talk about a threat,
You’ll look ill from your head until your feet,
Dressed in shrouds, more by the hour,
And a funny old shade of grey too,
Oh we don’t want your old rad subs here,
Old Subs, old subs?

Martyn will be joining us on the day.
The Ministry of Defence’s exhibition and workshop starts at 12 noon. We urge people to join us in demonstrating and opposing the dumping of nuclear submarines at Sellafield. This is the most dangerous nuclear site in Europe, and as we are told a “prime terrorist target.” Making Sellafield the MOD’s ongoing Nuclear Submarine Graveyard would link the site even more closely with the MOD and put Cumbria at even greater risk. Not to mention the fact that Sellafield cannot cope with the accumulating radioactive waste already at the site.
There is an excellent analysis of the situation here from the
