Nuclear no more!

Around 1,000 people demonstrated against the revival of nuclear power at Hinkley Point nuclear power station on 10-11 March, in the largest such protest for 30 years. There was a ‘surround the power station’ action and a 24-hour blockade by about 100 people.

The protest, on the anniversary of the Fukushima crisis in Japan, was attended by two Fukushima evacuees. There was only one arrest, a man allegedly stole a sign.

The next protest will be the annual Sizewell camp, 20-22 April.
