Sisters, aged 9 and 11, plead to UK PM to save environment from Sixewell C nuclear project

East Anglian Daily Times 31st Dec 2020,’I will never see the stars again’ – Sizewell sisters ask PM to stop
construction of power station. Two young girls have written to the Prime
Minister with their concerns about the creation of a new nuclear power
station in Suffolk. Eleven-year-old Evelyn Fairhurst and her nine-year-old
sister Merran wrote letters to Boris Johnson about the proposed £20billion
project. The sisters live in Sizewell hamlet and are concerned about the
impact that Sizewell C could have on their surroundings, including RSPB
Minsmere, where their mum Katie works. The girls were asked by local
campaigners if they would like to voice their concerns by writing a letter
to Mr Johnson. “The kids were really keen to do it,” said Mrs Fairhurst.

Non violent anti-nuclear action – the Clamshell Alliance model for success

Know Your Nonviolent History: In 1976 Clamshell Alliance Launches Mass Demonstrations https://www.riverasun.com/know-your-nonviolent-history-in-1976-clamshell-alliance-launches-mass-demonstrations/August 18, 2016, by Rivera Sun  On August 1st, 1976, the first nonviolent mass demonstration of the Clamshell Alliance took place at the proposed site of the Seabrook Nuclear Energy Facility in New Hampshire. The Clamshell Alliance was a group of anti-nuclear activists who worked to stop nuclear power plant construction at a time when President Nixon’s “Project Independence” had proposed the construction of over 1,000 nuclear power plants throughout the nation. Although the Clamshell Alliance was only partially successful in halting the Seabrook facility, their mass mobilizations deterred the plans for other plants and changed the landscape of nuclear energy forever. If not for the Clamshell Alliance, it is possible that we would be living in the nuclear nightmare of President Nixon’s vision of a thousand plants by the year 2000.
