Meeting organised by Kick Nuclear, Japanese Against Nuclear UK and CND.

EDF are holding a Sizewell C Community Forum at 18:30 on Thursday 26 July 2018. Please arrive in time for a 19:00 start so we can conclude the meeting at 21:00.

This is a meeting in public rather than a public meeting, so whilst the public are welcome to attend, only community forum members can speak or ask questions. It is important to maintain this procedural discipline because we have limited time and all Forum members need to have their opportunity.  Membership of the Forum depends upon the position held in an organisation or a nomination from a parish council.

The Waveney and suffolk Coastal Momentum group are holding a meet and greet. According to their facebook page it is

 "An informal chance to meet up with, and get to know, Momentum members and supporters in Waveney and Suffolk Coastal. Come along for a cuppa, a biscuit, and a chat. If you are interested there will be opportunities to get active in campaigning for Labour in the New Year."

TASC is not affiliated with any particular political party or faction. We are, however, interested in talking to politicians and people who are politically engaged at a national, regional or local level in order to disseminate information and get across our point of view about Sizewell C. At present, both the labour and the conservative party are in favour of new nuclear build, so it is important to try and persuade them to think again.
