Kick Nuclear (London)

Kick Nuclear is a London-based grassroots group campaigning against the UK's addiction to nuclear power - and supporting sustainable alternatives.

We hold regular meetings and actions in the London area, including a weekly Fukushima solidarity picket every Friday morning at the Japanese embassy and London headquarters of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), in collaboration with Japanese Against Nuclear UK .

If you would like to find out more about what we do, please contact us at the email address below or check out what's going on via the 'Boycott EDF' Facebook page. You might also like to see what's going on around the rest of the UK on the 'Stop New Nuclear' Facebook page.

Alternatively, come along to one of the protests or actions listed in the box on the right hand side.

Help us campaign for safer, fairer energy for everyone.

We want a future, not a disaster!

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.

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

NO to Hinkley C and NO to Nuclear!

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.

Kick Nuclear Statement to the Nuclear energy in the UK: priorities for new build, funding and developing the supply chain conference, which was held on tuesday 3rd March 2015 at the Royal Society.

'Nuclear Energy in the UK' conference, March 2015.

We are here today at your nuclear industry conference to again try to bring a little realism to your deliberations. Wind, wave and solar are cheaper, cleaner, lower carbon and therefore loved more by everyone outside the nuclear power industry, and we are here to urge you to stop flogging your nuke horse, because it is dead.

Coming up to 4 years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima in Japan, where are we? Dr. Quamrul Haider, professor of physics and chair of the dept. of physics at Fordham University, USA, summed it up last week: 'Fukushima will linger on for ages to haunt the future generations. Among the survivors there will be many cases of permanent sterility, increase of genetic mutations in our progenies, and a shortened life-span as a result of cancer and other radiogenic diseases'.

On November 20th KN leafleted the Nuclear New Build Forum.

This is the text which was used.


We're here today to ask you if building any more nuclear power plants is really such a good idea?

Japan has highlighted one of your industry's main problems by building 7 GW of solar in 2013 alone. That’s equivalent to about six nuclear power stations but built in only one year, while nuclear power stations take over 15 years to build!
