Get ready for Hinkley blockade - 5th Stop New Nuclear newsletter

Welcome to our fifth Stop New Nuclear newsletter. With little more than two weeks to go, we need to make a last effort to mobilise even more people to the blockade of Hinkley Point on 3 October.

ASS needs you!

The Advisory Service for Squatters releases its first newsletter... and wants your help!

The hardworking bunch at the Advisory Service for Squatters have just released their annual report in the form of a newsletter.

Its full of as much information, juicy gossip and as many requests for help that you can fit on two sides of A4!

Stop New Nuclear. Blockade of Hinkley Point on 3 October 2011

WHY HINKLEY?

Hinkley Point, near Bridgwater in Somerset, is the first of eight proposed sites for nuclear new build to go ahead. We stopped them here before, and we can do it again. If they fail at Hinkley, it is unlikely the “nuclear renaissance” will have the momentum to continue.

The swoop cometh! Glos eco-village:meeting list.

Greetings all,

The beginning is nigh...

Hopefully this will be the last meeting list, so the next thing you'll hear from us will be the swoop info.. anyone wanting to help out with the swoop, on the day- please get in contact now... Otherwise you'll only be given short notice as to the date/location etc...

Stokes Croft Freeshop Eviction

The popular squatted Freeshop and attached Emporium Gallery on Stokes Croft were evicted this morning. Bailiffs entered the building with sledgehammers at around 6am, surprising the occupants, and had managed to secure the building before support arrived.

Stop New Nuclear newsletter no 1, July 2011

Welcome to Stop New Nuclear's first newsletter. You receive this newsletter because you have signed one of the pledges, or you signed up to the newsletter. Thank you for this.

We plan to send a newsletter to all pledgers and newsletter subscribers about once a month, and possibly more frequently in the weeks before the blockade. Feel free to share and distribute this newsletter.

The Spuds don't work. *Norwich, noon, 23rd July 2011.*

British trials of genetically modified blight resistant spuds have been failing for the last ten years. But a conventionally bred variety of blight resistant potatoes has been available for 3 years. So why are we still paying for their dangerous experiment?
