EDF finally managed to find their paperwork first thing this morning and the eviction began at 6:45 am. Theo Simon one of the barnstormers is refusing to leave the site and has climbed into the barn structure in a last ditch attempt to save the bat roost and surrounding 400 acre site that EDF are waiting to trash, Said Mr Simon “We are all that is left between this beautiful habitat and corporate bullies EDF. The reason it has come to this is because all democratic ways to challenge what is happening here have been exhausted EDF hasve ridden roughshod over local communities many of whom are unhappy with EDF. This preliminary work must be stopped,and there must be a full investigation into how these corrupt policies and planning decisions have made and implemented, at both the national and local levels”
On 27th February at the Royal Courts of Justice, London, EDF won a possesion order against anti-nuclear activists who are occupying a barn on the proposed new site for a nuclear reactor at Hinkley Point.
The barn has been successfully occupied for over two weeks now but the eviction could come at any time in the next few days.
The occupiers are welcoming any one who wants to come and help dismantle the camp. There is lots of food available and a cosy and convivial atmosphere to be enjoyed ! Please come !
PHONE : 0793 392 0425 or 0753 094 7554
The activists will be celebrating what the camp had achieved in terms of raising awareness of Hinkley to the national level , as many people do not know that the government is planning to build new nuclear reactors, they want to slip these plans in" under the radar" to avoid a proper public debate taking place, like there has been in Italy and Germany, in the wake of Fukushima.
The workers, mostly Goan, have held 6 days of strike action over the last 2 weeks with more planned in the coming weeks. Since the campaign started, workers have picketed the hospital, held mass rallies, blockaded Carillion HQ and various other demos and pickets. The strike, which started solidly is only growing stronger by the day.
The dispute centres around the culture of racist and demeaning treatment that the Goan workers are routinley subjected to - particularly from one manager, who has since been forced to resign. Another key part of the dispute is the fact that the workers have been told that they are allowed NO holiday time between the 10th of December and the 7th of January, removing any chance of them visiting relatives and friends in Goa over the christmas period.
Carillion have done their best to ignore the issues at the heart of this dispute and have mounted a campaign of strike-breaking against the cleaning staff, putting pressure on Carillion employees in companies such as Zurich and Nationwide to scab at the hospital on strike days.
Swindon Anarchists, in what we expect to be the first of many escalating actions, decided to show solidarity with the hospital workers by holding a demo against Carillion strikebreaking at the Swindon Zurich offices on Friday 24th of Feb
Roger, now 84, is a life-long peace campaigner from Stroud. He refused to fill in his UK Census last year because Lockheed Martin, the firm administering the Census, is the world’s 2nd-biggest arms manufacturer. contributed to the weaponry that rained death on Gaza in 2008-9. And their American subsidiaries trained the interrogators at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
Earlier this month Bristol Magistrates’ fined Roger £460, which he refuses to pay. It would be a demonstration of solidarity if each of us paid a TINY AMOUNT of the fine for him. Public exposure for LM, and they won’t be invited to run a census again. Can you pay just two pound?
Write a cheque for £2 HMCTS (HM Courts & Tribunals Service), and post ASAP to Monica Jones, ‘Wisma Mulia’, Bridge Rd, Frampton on Severn GL2 7HE for bulk mailing to the court. You can also send a statement of support which can be used for the media. Another Census-Refusenik, John Marjoram, goes on trial in May
