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.
