Over 1,000 protestors blockade the entrance to Hinkley Point power station in response to a proposed new nuclear reactor.
The demonstration is against plans to build new nuclear reactors at the Hinkley station. Many of the protesters stayed overnight, blocking traffic going in, and coming out.
A spokesperson for the ‘Stop New Nuclear Alliance’ stated that:
“We’ve successfully concluded the first ever 24-hour blockade of a UK nuclear power station. This is a major victory for the anti-nuclear movement and a sign that the tide is turning against the government’s nuclear renaissance.”
