International Nuclear Free Future Award (NFFA) goes to Cumbrian group monitoring Sellafield

CORE 7th July 2017 CORE’s Janine Allis-Smith and Martin Forwood who have campaigned on  Sellafield commercial operations since the 1980’s have been notified that they have won the international Nuclear Free Future Award (NFFA) for 2017
under the Education category.

Cited for their three decades of work ‘unmasking ‘ and disseminating information on operations at the West
Cumbrian site to a world-wide audience – and with CORE described as ‘an indispensable pillar of the British anti-nuclear movement’ – the award which carries a cash endowment of $10,000 will be made in Basel, Switzerland in September.

Commenting on the unexpected award the campaigners said today: ‘We are honoured to have received NFFA’s Education Award for 2017 and humbled to be joining the list of diverse and distinguished winners of the past. Since the 1980’s when Sellafield was preparing to double its commercial reprocessing activities, we have focused not only on acting locally but also being the ‘eyes and ears’ for the many interested parties world-wide on Sellafield and its many detrimentswhich include site accidents, environmental contamination, health risks, plutonium stockpiles and nuclear transports.
