NuGen plan to “enhance the environment.” Like they did with Fukushima?

Not in Our Name
Not in Our Name

Today outside Whitehaven Civic Hall we sang our songs, spoke to lots of people and handed out leaflets countering the propaganda from the nuclear industry.  Lots of people stopped to tell us that they are opposed to new build “but what can we do – they’re gonna go ahead anyway”    Well certainly that is what the criminal companies hiding behind the bland NuGen brand want the public to think and that is how the CONsultation is designed.  Sandy Rupprecht, NuGen’s Chief Executive answered ITV’s Samantha Parkers question thus:

ITV – Q:   What would you say to these demonstrators.
NuGen – A:   One of the aspects we really like about West Cumbria, it’s not just the nuclear heritage, but it’s also the passion that’s here for the environment. We need that passion to come out to educate us and give us information so that we can build that into our plans and make sure that we disturb the environment as little as possible if not actually enhance it.

…….like they did at Fukushima?

  1. Does anyone know who holds the 1/3rd or more UK debt which is foreign owned? Is a large part Japan-Japanese banks? This link tells the percentage. Someone mentioned in a comment in related pages the difficulty finding out, even with FOI requests. http://www.economicshelp.org/blog/627/economics/who-lends-the-government-money/ In the US it is Japan and China. As the Japanese portion has increased and China decreased, so too has the US pretending that China is an enemy. At some points France has owned a surprising amount of US debt – I think short-term. There is short and long term. What I’m getting at is that these reactors could be in exchange for not pulling out of the debt. The large short-term debt holder would seem to have the most power. The same Japanese companies are now trying to build nuclear reactors in Poland.
