This Friday March 11th -Join Us in Opposition to Nuclear Dump Plans for the Coastal Plain of Cumbria

The Nuclear Industry are looking for somewhere to dump their hot wastes in deep and not so deep silo's. The West Cumbrian Coastal Plain is in the Frame Again!

Join us outside the Drigg 'Drop In" at Drigg and Carelton Village Hall on Friday March 11th from 11am to 12pm to show opposition to this plan and hand out information exposing the fact that 16 rock characterisation boreholes have ALREADY been drilled at the Low Level Waste Repository metres from the shifting sands of the environmentally sensitive and supposedly "protected" Drigg Dunes and the Irish Sea Marine Conservation Zone.

March 11th is the Anniversary of the ongoing Fukushima disaster. We will also hold a minute's silence to remember the earthquake and tsunami that occurred on March 11, 2011. It was the most severe nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Following the minutes silence we will go to the Low Level Waste Repository for a site visit and have a walk down to the shore around the perimeter (weather dependent). Drigg railway station is a 10 minute walk from the Village Hall. There is parking along the shore road near the station (over the railway track) There is limited parking at the Village Hall.

Bring banners, bring yourselves and lets show opposition to the nuclear dump plans ( no tribal flags please ). Petititon and more info here
