 More than 200 actvitists squatted a field next to Hinkley Point nuclear power station for three days of protests. On Monday 8th October, 50 people stormed the site earmarked for two new mega nuclear reactors. The protest aimed to highlight the huge environmental and financial costs of the government's bid to build 8 new nuclear power stations in the UK.

No New Nuclear - International call out

Join us in an act of mass civil disobedience as we trespass on the proposed site of Hinkley C nuclear power station in Somerset.

EDF Energy is already trashing fragile Somerset countryside in preparation for the Hinkley C nuclear power station – even though it hasn’t got planning permission to start building.


This mass action is for anyone who feels able to publicly trespass - or bear witness to the mass trespass by joining us around the perimeter fence. We need people who are prepared to be arrested.

Take the Flour Back! Mass action against GM wheat

Sunday 27th May 2012
Public day of action against the Rothamsted genetically modified wheat trial.

We need local, community-based solutions to the climate crisis. Despite being much trumpeted for some years now as an answer to climate change, no GM drought tolerant or ‘climate ready’ crops have made it to the table anywhere in the world. Nor do we think, even if ever possible, these would be a solution.

Activists are occupying a farmhouse close to Hinkley Point nuclear power station, to stop EDF Energy trashing land for a planned new nuclear power station; and are calling for more people to join them. Anti-nuclear campaigners have been joined by members of Seize the Day as the first residents of Edf-Off Cottage which is on the 400-acre site earmarked for two new mega-reactors. Following an occupation of trees last week, the campaign against Hinkley C power station being built on fragile coastal land has now moved to a nearby farmhouse.

This film gives an account of the first few days of the occupation. The activists took occupancy in the early hours of Sunday the 12th of February and are settling in to their new home and community.
