Theresa May unexpectedly put the brakes on a decision on Hinkley Point nuclear power plant last week. A decision will now be taken in the Autumn, so we have a vital window to persuade her and Philip Hammond to cancel the project once and for all, and to invest in cheaper and cleaner renewables instead.
We have donated to quite a few campaign groups who're trying to stop new nuclear power. Could we urgently get some articles / interviews / films from these groups up on our website in the next few weeks, as momentum builds for the Hinkley decision in the Autumn?
The groups we have supported (in no particular order) are:
South West Against Nuclear - https://southwestagainstnuclear.wordpress.com/
Stop New Nuclear - http://stopnewnuclear.org.uk/
No 2 Nuclear Power - http://www.no2nuclearpower.org.uk/
Kick Nuclear London - https://kicknuclear.com/
Greater Manchester & District Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament - http://www.gmdcnd.org.uk/
There is also a Stop Hinkley campaign, but we haven't funded them (they've never applied) - http://www.stophinkley.org/
Camilla Berens from Kick Nuclear is a great speaker if you would like to interview her. The charity team can get you contacts for all these campaign groups.
