Mass trespass at EDF’s Hinkley Point nuclear power station: October 5-8 2012
Mass trespass: schedule, travel and legal update
Friday October 5th:
Camp opens from midday. The camp’s location will be provided nearer the time. If you want to register for the camp, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday October 6th:
March and Rally with the theme: No Nuclear Waste Dump At Hinkley C.
(If EDF Energy gets the go-ahead for two new EPR reactors at Hinkley C, highly radioactive spent fuel will be stored on site for over 100 years. Most people in the south-west are unaware that their back yard could be turned into a toxic dumping ground.)
11.30am: Assemble King Square, Bridgwater town centre
12.30pm: March through town centre
1.15 - 3.30pm: Rally at Cornhill with speakers, videos and music
4.30 - 5.30pm approx: Die-in at the entrance to Hinkley Point nuclear power station. Please note that parking is very limited in the area around Hinkley. A shuttle service will be provided to take protesters to the entrance. More details will be given nearer the time. Waterproof clothing/cushion/water advised for weather protection/comfort during the die-in.
Sunday October 7th:
Camp planning day: a briefing on the mass trespass will be followed by the formation of affinity groups/spokescouncil so that everyone has a say in how the trespass will be organized. A full legal briefing will also be provided.
Monday October 8th:
Mass trespass at the proposed site of Hinkley C. Please note that this area is not yet licenced as a nuclear installation and therefore is not patrolled by the Civil Nuclear (armed) Constabulary. However the CNC patrols the site of Hinkley A and Hinkley B and these boundaries should not be breached. Boundary maps will be available at the camp.
There will also be a solidarity picket outside the Department for Energy and Climate Change, 3 Whitehall Place, London, SW1A 2AW from midday to 2pm. Please let us know if you plan to attend the picket and we will put you in touch with the co-ordinator.
Travel from London
A 50-seater coach has been hired to take people from London on Saturday 6th to Bridgwater and then on to Hinkley C for the die-in (a service station stop will be provided en route). It will then return to London that evening.
