You may have read in the press that Austria is making a principled stand against new nuclear build in the UK. We have written to the Austrian Ambassador to thank him. It would encourage the Austrians in their courageous stance if more people were to write. Please feel free to use the letter below as a template to tell the Austrian government how we feel.
fao Martin Eichtinger the Ambassador: THANK YOU FOR YOUR GOVERNMENT’s PRINCIPLED OPPOSITION TO UK NUCLEAR SUBSIDIES
Dear Ambassador Eichtinger,
Thank You for your principled stand against UK nuclear subsidies.
Many British people reject the UK Government’s proposed nuclear plants at Hinkley Point C in Somerset, Moorside in Cumbria and elsewhere. Many are angry at the proposed massive State subsidies for this mature technology when the alternatives including energy efficiency and renewables are cheaper, cleaner, low carbon and provide more jobs.
We are also concerned about the risks of an untried reactor technology and about the new authoritative evidence of increased child leukemias and other radiation linked diseases near all nuclear power stations and Sellafield reprocessing plant. We therefore appreciate your Government’s work to oppose unwarranted State subsidies for this unsustainable, dangerous, unethical and undemocratic technology and would ask that you convey to your Government that many UK citizens strongly oppose the UK Government’s obscene nuclear plans. We expect that your Government will be watching the outcome of the UK elections in May!
on behalf of Radiation Free Lakeland
