anti nuke bloc NATO SUMMIT 30Aug -5th Sept

STOP NATO WEEK OF ACTION 30 AUG -5TH SEpt

On the 4th and 5th of September, thousands of politicians and business men, including 60
world “leaders”responsible for countless deaths in wars of aggression, will descend on Newport , South Wales, for a summit of NATO, with a media circus and police operation to match….

A variety of groups are calling for action against the summit , which is taking place at the Celtic Manor Hotel.

NATO has more than 5000 nuclear weapons.
This figure includes Britain’s Trident system which alone could incinerate some 45 million people. The planned replacement program will cost the tax payer some £100 billion!

NATO’s conventional weapons increasingly use radioactive materials , manipulated in nuclear power stations… these weapons leave a toxic legacy which will affect the environment for generations and have already caused serious birth defects in Iraq, Former Yugoslavia , Afghanistan.

Join us on the
ANTI NUCLEAR BLOC…NO TO TRIDENT ….
NO TO NUCLEAR POWER…NO TO WAR…..

peace camp to be announced keep informed

No more EDF Bulls**t!

For immediate release:

EDF “nuclear bullshit” protest

People protesting about public subsidies for a new Hinkley Point nuclear power station today dumped a pile of animal manure at an EDF shop in Bridgwater in Somerset. A banner was hung above the shop which read “No More Bullsxxt – EDF take our £££ and dump waste on us!”

The protest action, by South West Against Nuclear (SWAN), came on the day that David Cameron and Ed Davey announced a deal with EDF and Chinese Nuclear which would fix the price paid by UK consumers for new nuclear electricity – at double the current rate.

A man in a cow costume addressed shoppers as passers-by emptied shopping bags of manure onto a plastic sheet, blocking the entrance. A placard written in Chinese was stuck into the pile. Protestors cleaned the floor around the pile and then removed the manure pile for organic recycling.

Police later confiscated the manure and placed it in their van, saying that they believed it might be used to commit criminal damage.

Crisis of civilisation Collapse scenarios and radioactive sites and wastes

There are numerous explorations of future scenarios which, whilst obviously no single one is likely to be the exact future we experience, (the variables are just to great and therir interrelatedness to complex for us to really be able to adequately model them), they do at least make for sobering reading given the implications of the various climatic variables explored.

Many of the medium to high emissions scenarios show political, economic and environmental discontiuites happening, see for yourself have a look at ECOLABS for example or an extreme scenario put together by the americans  An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security these are just a couple there are plenty more out there, it is interesting how the threat of nuclear war breaking out seems to be frequently discussed in these scenarios but there is complete silence when it comes to the issue of what will happen to the sites that are currently home to high and intermediate level waste, over 700 sites globally, including the dirty disgusting Sellafield. Cultural blindspot or what?  I mean, we know that it’s hard to think about, Fukushima has proven that with the complete global media blackout on the on-going crisis there, and that is just one of the 700 sites containing dangerously radioactive material.

Right now the only dialogue worth having about nuclear is what we’re going to do with the waste? How many Joules of energy of the remaining fossil fuels will it take to package in Dry casks all of the high level and intermediate level waste already generated by humans? How long will that packaging last? What will happen if it is all just abanadoned in situ? (this is currently the most likely scenario given the refusal to talk adequately about the very soon to happen  expiry of fossil fuels due to exponential global population growth).

If you think this scenario is a bit out there in terms of possibility of happening think again, the late Dr David Fleming raised questions on this issue some years ago, still nothing is being done to adress them…

solidarity with PAWB (People against Wylfa b)

Hundreds support Caerdegog protest

No to Wylfa B , No to Hinkley C. We traveled to Anglesy through the most beautiful scenery (Snowdonia National Park) and arrived at Llangefni to to join hundreds   protesting against Wylfa B. It was heart warming and inspiring to see such a strong local presence against the proposed new nuclear build. The atmosphere was  peaceful, determined and crossed the generations. A red dragon and a marching band  the Cambrian Band/Celtic League. meandered us through the streets. Speeches were made in Welsh and English. Nikki Clark of SWAN and Stop Hinkley spoke of solidarity with  communities affected  by Uranium mining, Uranium weapons and Uranium power making connections on the local global level. She encouraged people to object to Hinkley C new nuclear build and invited people to join us at Hinkley Point on the 10-11 March 2012 http://stopnewnuclear.org.uk http://stop-wylfa.org/wp/?p=362
