Public Statement to be read outside of the Gates of the Springfield Plant on the 62nd anniversary of the Windscale Fire.
October 10th 2019
We are gathered here today to lament the Windscale fire which occurred exactly 62 years ago,
The fire was one of the greatest nukiller disasters on British soil.
We remember that the uranium fuel rods which burnt in the fire were manufactured within the Springfield plant.
We remember how the use of Uranium at Windscale and its highly radioactive waste products will continue to be highly dangerous to all life for many centuries to come.
We remember all those people who have suffered ill health as the result of Uranium mining, and its use over the years.
We remember all those are suffering now and in to the future, as the result of the activities which go on in the Springfield plant.
We demand the immediate halt to the production of Uranium fuel and closure of all atomic power plants.
