Radiation Free Lakeland have just sent off this 'submission' (how we hate that word) to the Welsh Affairs Committee. We urge others to write opposing plans for new nuclear in Wales (or anywhere!). The "high burn" waste from new build would be many times hotter than from existing nuclear plants. Please feel free to …
Temple of Doom: How do we warn the future about nuclear waste?, Triple J Hack, by James Purtill, 19 Feb 16 “…….This week the South Australian Royal Commission released “tentative findings” recommending the state take more than 100 tonnes of high-level radioactive waste and store it in the desert for hundreds of thousands of years…….

Where in the world would a school be run by an arms manufacturer? China? Russia? Syria? Or…
Barrow in in Furness, Cumbria?
BAE builds nuclear submarines in Barrow, where, we are told reassuringly, radioactive emissions from the dockyard are masked by
the greater emissions from Sellafield, just across the Duddon Estuary.
Not content with poisoning us, the nuclear weapons industry wants to poison children’s minds too.
Because the Government is putting our money into Trident and New Nuclear Build, Councils and Education Authorities are cash-strapped and abdicating responsibility to BAE. There is something nasty happening here in ‘Trident Town’ but no one is shouting about it.
Fukushima deaths covered up while here in Cumbria the industry blames “population mixing” for “excess” leukemias. If the industry has its way there will be :
A. population mixing with the influx of thousands of temporary workers and B. accumulating routine and accidental emissions from Moorside ….
Take your pick!!

Having heard on the news how much Merkel has always loved ball – we suggest that she keep her millions of high level nuclear waste balls, in their pristine golden storage containers, to go with the World Cup Golden Ball, instead of dumping on the USA (or other countries).
Germany can’t keep the good ball and dump their commercial radioactive waste balls from their failed Pebble Bed Nuclear Technology on others! It’s so wrong!

Cumbria plays a Nasty part in the Nuclear Trail of Tears…shame on those promoting the industry as “safe and green” and shame on those whose silence makes them complicit.

When will Europe and the rest of world stop seeing the US as its dumping ground – first of unwanted people and now of its unwanted radioactive waste? What sense does it have to steal a land from the Natives only to destroy it, especially…

Theresa May has pulled her weight and been excluding as many people as she can (including the WHOLE of Scotland) to undermine the forthcoming Pitchford Inquiry into extremely dodgy undercover surveillance and undermining of genuine campaigns and campaigners.
Kate Wilson is an environmental and social justice activist who was deceived into a long-term relationship by undercover police officer Mark Kennedy. This, her first UK public talk on the subject, came five days after she won a gruelling four year legal battle to have the Metropolitan Police held accountable for Kennedy’s abuse.

Janet Alder has been a tireless campaigner for justice for her brother Christopher who was killed by Humberside police in 1998. Police admit repeatedly putting her under surveillance, yet she has been denied ‘core participant’ status at the Pitchford inquiry into undercover policing.
Stafford Scott has been a key figure in numerous black community…

“I toured the situation yesterday and my hair nearly fell out,” Dr. Helen Caldicott said. “I’ve never seen anything so goddamn dangerous.”
The internationally renowned authority on the medical dangers of nuclear waste did not sugarcoat her thoughts after visiting several contamination points, like Westlake Landfill and Coldwater Creek in North St. Louis County.

In July 2015, the Fukushima prefectural government announced its plan to terminate housing assistance for nuclear evacuees who fled areas outside of the restricted zone at the end of March 2017. It has absolutely no intention to change this policy as of this moment in February 2016.
