No more Fukushimas - 10 March 2012: Surround Hinkley Point

Hinkley Point is the first of eight proposed sites for nuclear new build to go ahead. We stopped them here before in 1987, and we can do it again in 2012. If they fail at Hinkley, it is unlikely the “nuclear renaissance” will have the momentum to continue.

On the 10th -11th March 2012, one year since the Fukushima nuclear disaster began, we will return to Hinkley to form a human chain around the station to show our determined opposition to new nuclear.

Event Date and Time: 
Sat, 10/03/2012 - 12:00pm - 6:00pm

No more Fukushimas - 10-11 March 2012: Surround Hinkley Point

The biggest industrial disaster in history.

Japan, has been brought to its knees by the ongoing events at Fukushima.

The reactors that went into meltdown in March have now melted through the foundations and 40 years of accumulated nuclear waste is emitting vast amounts of radiation, contaminating the land, sea and air. In desperation, the Japanese government is transporting and burning radioactive rubble all over Japan and exporting highly contaminated food as “aid” to developing countries.

Nuclear power station to become target for mass blockade

People from all over the UK are set to descend on Hinkley Point nuclear power station to protest again EDF Energy’s plans to build two new mega-reactors next to the existing site.

Nuclear New Build and Hinkley – Important update from South-West Against Nuclear (SWAN) and Stop Nuclear Power Network (SNPN)

Things are hotting up with the government and nuclear industry’s plans for nu-killer new build in Britain. If we want to put the brakes on their insane plans to build a fleet of new potential Fukushimas at up to eight sites around England and Wales, we need to get active TODAY!


Here are a few ideas for getting involved. We’re sure you’ll have more of your own: feel free to share and discuss!

Get informed

You’ll find a brief summary of where things are at with nuclear new build in Britain after the action suggestions below.

23rd July: Stop nuclear trains through the Olympic site demo

Action will consist of a journey along the route used by nuclear trains* between Highbury & Islington and Stratford station, followed by a rally and symbolic die-in in front of Stratford Station.

Meet noon at Highbury and Islington Station (don’t be late.).

Leafletting at Highbury & Islington, Dalston Kingsland, Hackney Central and Hackney Wick by different groups getting off at intermediate stations and taking later trains, so we are all on same train between Hackney Wick and Stratford. (Train timetables will be available.)

Arrive 1.30pm at Stratford Station. March out together.

Event Date and Time: 
Sat, 23/07/2011 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm

Nuclear white elephant blown up outside Parliament

Friends of the Earth action earlier today:

No, not a terrorist incident this time, but inflation of another nuclear white elephant. Olkiluoto and Flamanville anyone?

UK anti-nuclear campaigners set for weekend of seaside action

Campaigners from the national Stop Nuclear Power Network are planning a packed programme of activities at Sizewell over the Easter weekend (22-25 April). (1).

The annual beach camp beside the nuclear power station in Suffolk, England, now into its third year, will have added significance this year due to the unfolding disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Japan, and because it marks 25 years since the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe in the Ukraine.
