Nothing to Celebrate.
It is now 50 years since the Treaty of Almalo was signed.
That’s 50 years since URENCO was founded.
That’s 50 years of URENCO enriching Uranium.
That’s 50 years of URENCO taking park of the nukiller fuel cycle,which starts with uranium mining and ends with the creation of vast amounts of radioactive waste.
That’s 50 years of playing a part in the production of extreme energy, causing radioactive pollution, and doing untold damage to the environment.
That is Nothing to celebrate.
We grieve for all those who have been, are currently, and will suffer as a result of the work of URENCO, and at the Capenhurst plant.
We call for the end of uranium mining, uranium enrichment, and the immediate closure of all nukiller powet plants.
We call for URENCO to play a part in cleaning up the radioactive mess which it has caused.
We call for the creation of world in future generations no longer have to suffer the ill effects extreme energy such as nukiller power.
We will Celebrate when the Capenhurst URENCO plant is Closed Down.
