National Day of Action against Nuclear Trains

Day of Action against Nuclear Trains - Temple Meads 019

‘Mobile Chernobyl’

 

In soldarity with events at train stations around the country,  Southwest Against Nuclear held an awareness raising event at Bristol Temple Meads Train Station. Leaflets were given out about the problems of nuclear waste transport and maps of Britains Nuclear Train routes showing people that this deadly silent cargo isn’t just a problem for communities living near nuclear power stations but for communities everywhere, the highly radiaoctive spent fuel is far more vulnerable during transport than it is inside the containment of the reactors it came from!

Talking to the public about Nuclear waste transport

Interesting conversations were had and many leaflets were given, over-all the response was positive, people had questions about what we think should be done about it, our answer has to begin with the obvious and that is to curtail production of more nuclear material, acknlowedging that we cannot ensure it’s isolation from the environment for the timescales invovled. The best that we can do is to contine to manage, monitor and repackage the so-called ‘legacy’ waste, and pass it forward to the next generation letting them know that we’ve failed to protect them and that this is the best we can do..
