Make Wales Nuclear Free campaign

Several campaign groups have formed the Keep Wales Nuclear Free campaign, although they perhaps forgot about Wylfa and the fact you can only keep it nuclear free if it is already!

Never mind.

The groups include Centre for Alternative Technology, Friends of the Earth Cymru and the Green Party

Paul Allen, Development Director of the Centre for Alternative Technology said, "A shift of energy policy ... to energy efficiency and renewable energy sources is not only imperative for preventing runaway climate change, it is also vital to our international security.”

Julian Rosser, Director of Friends of the Earth Cymru commented: “The industry spin machine seems to have transformed nuclear power from dead duck to spring chicken almost overnight. However effective their lobbying has been, the fact remains that nuclear is not safe, secure, financially viable or reliable. There is massive untapped potential in Wales for saving energy and generating clean green renewable electricity. That would help tackle dangerous climate change and create far more jobs than nuclear power.”

At the Keep Wales Nuclear Free campaign website individuals and organisations can endorse a petition and sign up.
