What the Fukushima?

Over a thousand people gathered at the potential site of the new power station in Hinkley, Somerset last weekend. The demo, entitled STOP HINKLEY succeeded in blocking the main road into the site on Saturday.

A mini tent city then emerged as over 100 people remained outside the main gate at Hinkley overnight - camping on the tarmac in makeshift tents. The blockade formally ended at 2pm on Sunday when Japanese buddhist monks performed a prayer for the victims of the Tsunami that precipitated the Fukushima disaster and to urge the UK government to take a more enlightened view on energy provision.
