The Weekend so far…..

Well its sunday and the barn in a bog camp is going well, this might be the only post we get to put up as not sure how much battery left! The camp set up was a bit mad b ut Saturday went very smoothly, it was very weird without Crispin there and we havent had a moment to really register the loss that his passing is we’re all stll in shock…But the protest on Saturday was amazing roman centurions barrowing barrells of radioactive waste ready to guard it into eternity….the speeches were all amazing, moving, inspiring as well as informative and educational.

The die-in at Hinkley was great fun too with a excorsim of EDF from the land.

The camp infrastructure is all up and trainings are going on now as we type. People have been arriving steadily at the camp and more coming tomorrow so things are gearing up. For today at least we can operate a shuttle service to the camp so if you’re thinking of coming then please do. Make sure you bring warm dry clothes wellies are very desirable (some would say essential) but if you dont have any then good stout boots and maybe carrier bags. The weather has been fine yesterday and today but not sure what it will do tonight and in the morning..

We’re looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow for the trespass. let’s show these people that we the people will not have this stuff imposed on us any more..

The new Green party leader Natalie bennett will be joining us tomorrow for the tresspass see you there…

update about Stop New Nuclear Camp

Hi folks just a quick note, from a very soggy field at Hinkley!

Anti nuclear flag hoisted with Jolly Roger (Bristol)

Activists hoisted the anti nuclear flag today (sat 29 Sept) next to the Jolly Roger on the Matthew.

Bristolians are waking up, Hinkley Point is only 30 miles from Bristol, no less than one hour downwind. On a sunny day, a baloon released at Hinkley Point arrives at the shores of our city within an hour.

But exactly what are the evacuation plans for this city ? None, let me repeat it, NONE.

Like the people of Fukushima, we will not be evacuated, we will not be told the truth and we will not be compensated by the nuclear industry. We will be forgotten and silenced like the people of Fukushima .

Yet the government’s new build nuclear plan calls for Hinkley Point to house a third nuclear plant containing 2 reactors (Hinkley C) The waste from Hinkley Point is to be stored on site for over a hundred years, too hot to move.

The consultation process is a scam , the planning process has been curtailed to suit the nuclear industry and setting a president for future land grabbing exercises.

To defeat Hinkley C is to assert our solidarity with native people, whose lands and bodies have been poisoned to extract uranium.

To defeat Hinkley C is to expose the genocidal crime of depleted uranium and uranium weapons

To defeat Hinkley C is our chance to expose the nuclear industry as an industry of war masquerading as a civilian industry.

The latest Stop New Nuclear Newsletter can be viewed here, everybody here in the South West (and other parts of the UK) are work furiously getting prepared for next weekend.

Our movement has suffered a great loss in the last week with the sudden death of Crispin amidst all of the preparations for the coming protest. (See our latest news page for the full article)

Our thoughts are with his family and close friends as they come to terms with his loss. Lets do him proud and give him a great send off this weekend at Hinkley.
