WildLife and the Atom

New Publication

First published by Greenpeace [London] in 1983,Wildlife and the Atom examines the damage done by Nukiller Radiation to our fellow creates.

That was before the ongoing disasters at both Chernobyl and Fukushima.

Now the Close Capenhurst Campaign has produced a second revised edition of the pamphlet in collaboration with Radiation Free Lakeland, and financial help from the Greenpeace [London] group.

Online for now.

Our intention is and always has been to publish a print edition of the pamphlet.

This will be done just as soon as Lockdown is over, and we are able to distribute it.

We will announce the print edition just as soon as we are able to do so.

New campaign leaflets

C.C.C. has just produced two new campaigning leaflets.
One is about the relationship between Capenhurst and the proposed nearby fracking site at Upton.

The second leaflet is Chester Beware!.
Trains pulling containers of highly-radioactive used fuel rods (“Nuclear Trains”) regularly go through Chester on their way up to Cumbria.

These waste trains are operated by DRS [Direct Rail Services] which transports this highly radioactive waste through some of most highly populated area in the UK.
