Strong community protest against planned Sizewell C nuclear plant for Suffolk

Sizewell C: Hundreds march against nuclear power plant after Government
decision delay. About 200 people turned up to protest against plans for a
£20bn nuclear plant on the east coast of England. A final decision on
Sizewell C in Suffolk has been delayed until July after the government said
it needed more time to look at new information.

Protesters marched to Sizewell beach, saying the delay was a “recognition of the project’s
problems”. A Sizewell C spokeswoman said the delay was “understandable
given the breadth of information after consultation”. Protesters from Stop
Sizewell C and Together Against Sizewell C, carried banners reading “chaos
coast coming soon”, “EDF-off” and “we don’t want to be beside the C”.
Alison Downes of Stop Sizewell C, said: “A decision to go ahead with
Sizewell C would be a wrong decision. “

EDF has clearly not taken this
community with them, and the government has totally betrayed the faith of
local people in due process by repeated commitments to Sizewell C when it
doesn’t have planning consent, let alone a final investment decision.”
Green Party co-leader Adrian Ramsay, who was at the rally, said:
“Renewably-generated electricity is now far, far cheaper and will deliver
far more sustainable jobs for Suffolk people and its independent businesses
than this expensive white elephant.”
