Another Nukiller CONsultation: WALES

  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 …

Nuclear wastes will outlast the repositories by thousands of years!

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…….

The report notes that the used fuel of nuclear power plants requires isolation from the environment “for many hundreds of thousands of years” and that many countries, including Finland, France, Hungary and South Africa, have developed purpose-built waste repositories.This is true, but it’s worth pointing out none of these already built repositories are for the final disposal of nuclear fuel. They are either for low to intermediate level waste, which needs to be isolated for several hundred years, or they are temporary, interim solutions to the problem of finding a final resting place that will…

‘Trident Town’ Letter in today’s Daily Mail

Letter in the Daily Mail last May…

'Trident Town' - Daily Mail Letter 1st May 2015

Trident Town

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.

Cover-up of missing, presumed dead, Fukuhsima nuclear plant workers

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!!

4,000 Missing TEPCO Nuclear Plant Workers – Presumed To Be Dead, Fukushima Radiation Caused Death Toll Is Rising Fast  http://agreenroad.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/200-or-more-missing-tepco-nuclear-plant.html

PRO NUCLEAR PROMOTERS AND THEIR MASS MEDIA SHILLS KEEP ON REPEATING THE PR PROPAGANDA THAT NO ONE DIED DUE TO FUKUSHIMA AND NOTHING BAD HAPPENED

The standard and official declaration one hears constantly from the mass media and the pro nuclear apologists, is that no one died due to Fukushima radiation, and no one will ever die from it. But how much reality is there to this statement, as opposed to a fairy tale wish?

Let Germany Keep Its High Level Nuclear Balls, Along with its WC Golden Ball!

Mining Awareness +

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!

Cover up! Voices of the Spied On, UK – Pitchford Spy Inquiry

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.

Activist news source

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.

On 21 January we held a Voices of the Spied On public meeting, and videos of the four panellists’ speeches are now on our Youtube channel.

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…
