Message to the Treasury

Last week it was reported in the Guardian and elsewhere that the Treasury was less than enthusiastic about the terms of the deal the British Government had entered into with EDF over the building of Hinkley C nuclear power station.

Because of this Kick Nuclear have decided to hold two leafletting sessions outside the Treasury underlining just how terrible a deal it is and congratulating them on their stand.

[ See Events for the times & place ]

This is the text of the leaflet which will be distributed: -

NO to Hinkley C and NO to Nuclear!

Nuclear Industry Forum 2015.

Nuclear Industry Forum 2015.

We are here this morning to again advise you of the error of your ways. Civilian nuclear power was only ever a fig leaf for nuclear bomb making, and civilian nuclear power is no longer either cheap, needed or acceptable.

Message to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Why nuclear is finished.

Today Kick Nuclear leafleted a pro nuclear meeting at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

This is the message which they gave: ----

Why nuclear is finished.

We are here today at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers to remind them of
their own motto: 'Improving the World Through Engineering'. Which should not involve giving succour, support or a platform to an industry that has averaged a meltdown every 12 years,
and is currently pouring uncontrolled quantities of

Kick Nuclear Activists Return to Leaflet DECC and The Treasury.

On morning of May 14th Kick Nuclear activists leafleted the
civil servants and government advisers who work at DECC [the
Department of Energy & Climate Change] about the high cost
of new build.

On the morning of May 15th leaflets were handed out to the civil

Both the Secretary of State at DECC ( Ed Davey ),
and the Chief Secretary to the Treasury ( Danny Alexander )

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.

Stop New Nuclear. Stop the next generation of nuclear power stations with a blockade at Hinkley Point Join us at Hinkley on 3 October 2011

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

The action:
A non-violent blockade of Hinkley Point nuclear power station in Somerset

On 3 October 2011 we will – with hundreds of people – non-violently blockade the access to Hinkley Point nuclear power station for one day.

Nuclear Emergency - a call for action

Nuclear power is dangerous, dirty and expensive. The government is currently putting a framework in place to kick-start a new generation of nuclear power stations. Now is the time to create a massive public outcry and stop this plan in its tracks. Please join us and use this leaflet to counter the nuclear myths.
