* Surround Hinkley Point: Saturday 10th March 2012
Join this unified show of opposition to new nuclear build and storing radioactive waste at Hinkley, Somerset, marking the first anniversary (on 11th March) of the ongoing disaster at Fukushima that shows us that the unexpected and “impossible” CAN happen at any time.
* A weekend protest camp was held on the beach in front of the Sizewell plant from 22nd-25th April, organised by members of the Stop Nuclear Power Network, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
UK activists are seizing the moment of nuclear’s international notoriety to hammer home the point, with group ‘Kick Nuclear’ saying, “Over the last 60 years, the nuclear industry has proved time and again that it is incapable of controlling such a dangerous – and expensive – form of energy”
* Kick Nuclear is reinforcing its campaign for a national boycott of EDF Energy. The French state-owned energy giant is spearheading the push for new nuclear build in the UK, and elsewhere. See http://boycottedf.org.uk
Nuclear Power – No Thanks
- Government proposals do not address the carbon debt involved with building nuclear power stations. The construction industry and in particular the production of concrete has a major impact on carbon emissions.
- There can be no ‘energy security’ from power stations that depend on fuel source, uranium, that is not produced in the UK and which, from all sources, is likely to run out in the forseeable future.
- When taking into account the legacy that nuclear power leaves for future generations it cannot be economic. What would be the cost over the millenia if the Romans had had nuclear power?The huge cost of building, running and cleaning up after nuclear power stations should more economically, safely and democratically be invested in local micro-generation, ruducing the losses of power transmission, and in promoting the benefits of a less consumer orientated life style and society.
- When the uranium runs out, or the power stations reach the end of their productive life, when oil has peaked and is in decline, where will the energy be found to keep safe and secure the ever growing legecy of nuclear waste?
- We are facing possible runaway climate change because of the expansionist policies and practical unsustanabilities of economic growth. We have only one Earth. We have already outgrown it. We cannot endlessly grow our economies, and those of ‘emerging’ countries. We must set an example by promoting the satisfaction on living within our means, whilst devoloping policies to reverse economic growth.
- Nuclear fuel is a limited resource. We do not control it’s supply. As it, and other fuels, run out we cannot guarantee that those countries that have uranium will be forever willing to share it, at any cost. With which countries will be be willing to go to war over nuclear fuel, as we have, and continue to do, for the declining supply of oil?
- There are more simple and more preductive ways of reducing our impact on the climate. For example the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation report that the livestock sector has a major impact, 18%, on emmisions leading to climate change. Reliance on livestock is neither neccessary nor beneficial to human health or that of the environment. It’s demands for land, water and basic food inputs prevents the use of agricultural skills and resources for horticultural techniques, including woodland management, for food and resources, that could reverse climate change.

The Smiling Sun Logo was designed in 1975 in Denmark.The logo soon was adopted by the anti- nuclear power movement in dozens of countries. In 1977 the Smiling Sun was trademarked. It became the world wide strongest brand against nuclear power. And still is.
All rights to the Smiling Sun logo belong to OOA Fonden, whose task it is to make the logo available for use by the anti nuclear movement world wide and to protect the integrity of the logo by stopping commercial and pro-nuclear infringement.
Funds from international sales of Smiling Sun badges and stickers assisted in 1978, and following years, in setting up and operating WISE, the World Information Service on Energy.
At Veggies we have received supplies from Keep Wales Nuclear Free (aka Big Green Gathering &/or the Green Party &/or the Environment Centre in Swansea). Any profit from selling the Smiling Sun stickers support our own work, campaigning on many environmental and social justice issue, inc Climate Change).
