Multinational nuclear corporations - among them France’s EDF and Areva, and Germany’s E.ON and RWE npower - in collaboration with their Westminster cronies, are seeking to capitalise on increasing public concern about climate change with attempts to rebrand nuclear power as a “green” source of electricity. They know that the general public will not accept new nuclear reactors if they learn the truth about this secretive and dirty industry.
The long history of cover-ups, deceit and shoddy and dangerous practices stretches back over fifty years, when nuclear power was first developed as a means of producing plutonium for the atomic bomb. The industry wants us to believe that a leopard can change its spots, but the only thing that really seems to change is the PR tactics.
Nuclear power is a dirty, dangerous and expensive distraction from the major investment needed for a radical transition to a safe and sustainable low-carbon future and green industry, based on more modest consumption, energy efficiency and conservation, and renewable and decentralised energy; a future in which we no longer have to rely on non-renewable and unsustainable uranium, plutonium and fossil fuels, and which will not lead to global nuclear weapons proliferation, more and deadlier radioactive emissions, a legacy of even more deadly radioactive waste that we can’t safely deal with and the ever-present risk of a Chernobyl-style nuclear catastrophe or terrorist attack
Join us as we demonstrate outside the Nuclear New Build Conference in central London to send a clear message to the industry and the Government that we don’t buy the greenwash and we reject false solutions like nuclear power.
Initiated by Nuclear People Power / No New Nuclear – a non-hierarchical loose network of individuals and groups fighting for a nuclear-free, sustainable energy future for the UK and the world.
Please let us know if you are coming, so we can update you of any changes.
