TASC has launched a petition strongly opposing the construction of Sizewell C. It has been taken to  Greenpeace events and shops and the response has been very positive. We hope it will run until the next consultation is announced, and then if we have over 1200 signature the Full Council are obliged to debate it. The petition will be available for people to sign in the local area over the next few months. The wording is as follows:

"We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the plan by EDFE to construct 2 new Nuclear reactors at Sizewell in Suffolk. The destruction of AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), SSSI sites (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and the proximity to Minsmere bird reserve, all on our crumbling Suffolk coastline, is totally unacceptable. A government-backed programme of energy saving and clean renewable energy would combat climate change and avoid the risks of a catastrophic accident, dangers to health and the storage of highly radioactive waste at Sizewell for many years to come. SAY NO TO SIZEWELL C"
