What's New

The battle is far from over…..time to start collaring your MPs again……

You may have been disappointed to read recently that planning permission has been granted for EDF Energy to start construction work on the Hinkley C nuclear power station in Somerset.

But the battle is far from over.

EDF and the Treasury are still in deadlock over a strike price – the guaranteed price at which the government will buy power from EDF over next 30 to 40 years. EDF has been pushing for a price of around £100 per megawatt hour – twice the going rate for today’s electricity.

Remember Fukushima March 2013

Remember
It has been two years since the tsunami and consequent nuclear disaster in Japan. The effects are still being felt by the local populations who have been unable to leave, and in the wider environment.
Technicians continue to struggle to get the melted down cores under control, and prevent stored waste on site from further contaminating the area.

Getting away with it?

Two protestors from the Stop New Nuclear Mass Trespass at Hinkley Point Somerset who had been bailed to Bridgwater police station were released on Monday without charge, despite the fact that one of them had been arrested in possession of a set of boltcroppers as they made for the fence in order to cut through it. The police could have charged the two with the offence of 'going equipped' but it seems that EDF are so desperate to try and stop the campaign grabbing headlines that they have decided not to press charges.

Post-trespass update

The latest mass protest against EDF Energy’s bid to build a new generation of nuclear power stations was a massive success. A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came to the march and rally in Bridgwater in Saturday October 6th and who stayed on for the camp and mass trespass on Monday October 8th.

We’d like to send an extra special thank you to all those involved in organising the march and rally, setting up and running the camp, its kitchen and its workshops and the six people who were arrested before and at the mass trespass.
