New Video! – No-Nukes No-Nukes!

No-Nukes No-Nukes (to the tune of the first Noel)

No-Nukes, No-nukes, the angel did say,
to cook your dinner on xmas day.
On xmas day, we will cook our food,
with power from the sunshine
to improve our mood
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

When we look up we all see a star,
our glorious sunshine gives power from afar,
and to the earth it gives us great light,
and so it continues all day to shine bright,
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes, No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

And by the light of that same star
are EDFs follies revealed ha ha ha!
To sew a lie was their intent
And to lie to the public wherever they went.
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes, No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

This star drew nigh to the northwest
EDFs chickens have come home to roost
And there it did both Pause and stay
Right o’er the place where the nuclear waste lay.
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes, No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

Then entered in some Wise women three
Introducing New Technology
They said “Shove off and make some room
Solar and wind power and tidal lagoon”
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes, No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

Then let us all with one accord
Bring down EDF and the rest of their board.
Who clear they have made it of the earth they think nought.
And with their blood-stained money our government bought.
No-nukes No-nukes, No-nukes, No-nukes,
Nuclear power gives us all the pukes!

20 millisieverts per year

A great exhibition about what is happening to the people of Japan who are being expected by their government to live in areas where they would receive a higher annual dose than most nuclear workers get in a year. Visit the post for more information.

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!

Day of Action against Nuclear Trains - Temple Meads 027

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..


Energy Minister and delegates challenged at Nuclear New Build Conference in London


Protesters picketed the entrance of the nuclear new build forum at Whitehall in London this morning. An Andrea Leadsom Look-a-like protestor. accosted delegates rebuking them for their £1,000+ attendance at the forum. Other protestors, dressed in day-glow yellow barrels, reminded delegates and passers by of the intractable problem of nuclear waste.

The Minister was challenged on her arrival and deaparture, and was rushed by aides to her car in order that she could avoid hearing the strong feelings of ordinary working people

Shana Deal said “It’ds shocking that a givernment minister is schmoozing with business-people that want profit from the nuclear-new-build programme, whereas it’s the taxpayers who will have to pick up the tab for dealing with the nuclear waste. This is all the more unacceptable at a time of savage cuts when the government claims that there is not enough money for essential services such as the NHS which is under attack by the current government also.”

Dr Rowland Dye (former Nuclear physicist) said “The Government and the nuclear industry like to mislead people by discussing the volumes of nuclear waste, but the volume isn’t the issue, the radioactivity of the waste is. Most of the British public don’t realise that the wastes from these new generation 4 reactors, is even more deadly than the waste currently produced. So deadly in fact that they willl have to leave it on site for 150 yrs before they can even think about moving it. This is all the more alarming as there is no safe way to dispose of the waste.”[1,2,]

this protest was part of a year long series of groundswell actions for climate justice.[3]


Notes to Editors

1- this article is an example of a government energy minister making misleading statements about nuclear waste – i,e that the volume is the issue – nuclear waste isn’t regular waste and therefore it is not the volume that is a concern but the radioactivity.

2- this document is called the poisoned challice and is well researched document by the nuclear consult group explaining the issues around high burn up fuel



Le 15 février 2016

Le 16 février 2016, EDF se réunit à nouveau pour décider de la poursuite du projet de construction de deux réacteurs EPR à la centrale nucléaire d’Hinkley (Somerset, Angleterre).
Un appel à une journée internationale d’action contre EDF le 15 février 2016 est lancé par le groupe antinucléaire local (SWAN – South-West Against Nuclear) afin de faire pression sur EDF pour réclamer l’abandon de ce projet, ainsi que toute ambition nucléaire au Royaume-Uni.
Alors que le fiasco de l’EPR Flamanville se confirme sans que cela n’empêche EDF d’envisager la pose du couvercle non-conforme de la cuve, elle-même non conforme,
Alors qu’aucun des quatre réacteurs EPR en construction n’a été à même (et c’est tant mieux) de fonctionner accumulant tous des retards, que ce soit en Finlande, en France ou en Chine,
Alors qu’EDF entame en France un coûteux et dangereux programme de rafistolage des anciens réacteurs,
Alors que EDF ne pourra finaliser son plan de financement sans une aide supplémentaire de L’État français et donc du contribuable,
Réclamons l’abandon du nucléaire
Affirmons notre solidarité avec celles et ceux qui, outre-Manche, s’opposent au projet insensé d’EDF en occupant agences, bureaux, etc d’EDF


#Occupy EDF15thFeb

The group South-West Against Nuclear (SWAN) are calling for an international day of action and occupation of EDF offices/facilities on Monday15th Febuary to demand that EDF withdraw from the Hinkley C project & give up their nuclear ambitions in the UK. On the following day, February 16th cash-strapped EDF will meet to decide whether to continue with their new nuclear plant at Hinkley C in Somerset or not. It could go either way.

The EDF occupations we are calling for on the 15th of February are part of the Groundswell year of action for climate justice. Justice that we believe is being denied by government collusion with the nuclear industry. Nuclear Power is not needed, clean reliable safe renewable energy is.

The Current Tory Government plans to heavily subsidize new nuclear while slashing support for renewables and denying them grid capacity, which is being reserved for future nuclear plants. The plans for Hinkley C have already skewed energy policy in the UK causing the government to withdraw support for safer cleaner technologies and community-owned energy projects through the electricity reform act.
But EDF still can’t afford to build Hinkley C without more financial support from the French govt, and we know that the EDF board is split over whether to proceed, with EDF unions heavily opposed. A decision by EDF to pull out now would leave a huge hole in the Tory’s energy plan of nuclear and gas. The field would then be wide open again for renewables – the only affordable, safe and democratic energy future we have.

This could be a decisive moment for all of us. By putting visible pressure on French state-owned EDF to drop Hinkley C we can highlight that it is not just people in Britain who are being made to pay, but French tax-payers too. This could tip the balance in France against the Hinkley C white elephant.

Help us by occupying EDF @ their shops, offices or other facilities, on Monday February 15th, Bring slogans in French as well as English, post pictures to social media use the Hashtag #OccupyEDF and spread the word. The red line theme that has been used throughout the COP talks will be a welcome inclusion for anyone that wants to!


EDF workers in France know that this ill-fated project could take EDF down, with the company threatening to raid it’s nuclear decommissioning ‘nest-egg’ in order to finance the Hinkley Deal.
We have a message for the EDF board – Safe Clean Affordable Energy is our number one priority – pull the plug on the doomed HPC project before it bleeds any more billions away, bankrupts EDF, and wrecks the UK’s renewable future.
