Transport to Mass Action at Hinkley Point Nuclear Power

Submitted by rt1 on Sun, 09/30/2012 - 14:00

Just to let you know that transport from London has been arranged for a Weekend of Mass Action at Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Station 5-8th October.

The Stop New Nuclear Alliance is organising a weekend protest camp and mass action from October 5th to 8th. The Alliance says the government is
about to commit the UK to a new generation of nuclear power stations while at the same time killing off investment in renewable energy. Spokesperson
Nancy Birch says: "We are calling for International solidarity to stop to UK being used as a shop window for companies like EDF Energy to promote
nuclear power as a solution to climate change - while support for renewables sector dwindles. The forthcoming Energy Bill is set to give the
green light to massive backdoor subsidies to nuclear - so the public will end up paying for it twice - through taxes and higher energy bills.  We
want a future not a disaster.

Please join our protest camp and Mass Actions to say NO to nuclear power before it's too late.'.
