Once again we will be back to the DRS [ Direct Rail Service ] open day at their Gresty Bridge depot in Crewe.
DRS are the railway company which transport highly radioactice nukiller waste to Sellafield.
This will be our 5th demonstration and leafleting session at a DRS open day event.
This is what is stated about the event on the DRS website: –
‘Bring the family along for a fun day out as we invite you to have a look behind the scenes’.
We will be telling a very different story.
The leafleting session will last from 10.30 to 15.30.
The Depot is a 10 minute walk from Crewe station.
Please email us to know if you can attend either of these events.
24th June 1978
As an alliance of groups and individuals, we declare our total and uncompromising opposition to URENCO and in particular to the supply of enriched uranium by URENCO to the military dictatorship in Brazil.
No safeguards are adequate to prevent the diversion of nuclear material for the production of nuclear weapons.
Brazil has refused to sign even the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and has made no secret of its intention to manufacture “Peaceful” nuclear bombs.
The supply of enriched uranium is a particularly clear example of the way nuclear power threatens all living creatures and their natural environment, concentrates power in the hands of a
few, necessitates a military style secrecy and undermines the principles of human liberty. This deal would be another irrevocable step towards a future of which we want no part.
Our stand is in defence of the health and safety of ourselves, future generations, and all living things on this planet.
We therefore demand an immediate halt to –
1. The plans to supply enriched uranium to Brazil.
2. The marketing of nuclear technology by URENCO.
We declare our determination to –
1. Provoke public discussion about the operation of URENCO and all its contracts.
2. Prevent the importing of uranium mined in violation of the land rights of people anywhere in the world: e.g. Australia, Namibia and Brazil.
And Announce that we are prepared to take all non-violent steps necessary to achieve these ends.
