So do you think Nuclear power has a future? What right have we to make decisions that are detrimental to our children's future?
There are currently proposals for new nuclear power stations at Wylfa on Anglesey & also Hinkley Point in Somerset. If we allow these to be built we risk leaving a legacy of poisoned land for our children to live in or be evicted from. Would you really want that?
We need to open our Eyes & ignore the lies being told by the Government & power companies, being indifferent & allowing new nuclear power stations to be constructed makes us as bad as the people who construct & run them.
They tell us that nuclear power is safe but we've all seen what happened at Chernobyl & Fukushima. They tell us that nuclear is green power but it leaves a legacy of radioactive waste & they tell us it creates jobs & prosperity yet the power companies have no obligation to provide compensation in the event of an accident which leaves people evicted from their lands, homeless & unemployed. Let me repeat that part for you, 'the power companies have no obligation to provide compensation in the event of an accident'. Yes thats right, the Government provides a get out clause & foot the bill themselves, with our own money!
So What Are We Going To Do About It?
Well we need to make our voices heard so I'm proposing a themed protest circumnavigation paddle around the Isle of Anglesey. This is a committing paddle in challenging sea's & will involve camping for several nights along the coast so it is only open to experienced paddles with their own kayaks & camping equipment.
As the paddle is themed I would suggest that we all wear white boiler style suits over our paddling kit & face masks too for protest pictures. Radiation stickers on the kayaks would be a bonus too.
The paddle is set for the Saturday the 15th of June starting out from Cemaes Bay near the sight of the current Wylfa power station at 09:00 & heading clockwise around the island.
The plan is to spend four nights camping to complete the circumnavigation though this may be more or less depending on how people feel.
