It is 30 years since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the worst we’ve had on Earth and the land is still affected by radiation. Babies are still being born with serious deformities.

There isn’t any safe Plan B when a nuclear power station goes wrong anywhere in the world and no safe way to get rid of nuclear waste.

The USA in the 1940s and 50s buried their nuclear waste butnow it is rising to the surface and polluting rivers and land. This also goes for incinerators when they burn anything from lead acid batteries. All of our small groups need to come together and tell the world to ban building nuclear power stations and incinerators immediately. If the EU doesn’t listen to us then the UK should vote to leave the EU.
