50 YEARS “ENRICHING THE FUTURE”

Cheshire-Live reported on a March 4th demonstration at Capenhurst uranium enrichment plant in Cheshire.  An edited version of the report follows:

“Urenco’s nuclear plant at Capenhurst [jointly owned by the UK and Dutch governments and German energy companies] this week celebrated 50 years since the company was founded.

“But outside Capenhurst protesters lamented the damage to human health and the environment caused by disasters like Chernobyl, Ukraine and Fukushima.

“Close Capenhurst [group organising the demonstration] campaigners argued that [the nuclear energy industry] was unsafe, from uranium mining to nuclear power production and transportation and storage of highly radioactive waste.

“Concerns have been raised about the Urenco plant itself which enriches uranium for use as fuel in nuclear reactors, with depleted uranium – a low level radioactive and toxic by-product of the process – stored on site.

“Marianne Birkby, an anti-nuclear campaigner [with the “Nuclear-Free Lakeland” campaign], speaking at the [eight-strong] demonstration outside the plant, said: ‘The start of the nuclear fuel cycle is here and where it ends up is Sellafield in Cumbria, and every day, virtually, there’s nuclear waste transported on the roads, rail, sea and nobody wants the waste.

“It’s all very well for Urenco to say ‘enriching the future’ [the plant’s Orwellian slogan] … but nobody wants nuclear waste at the end of the day. And nuclear waste is the product of nuclear power.”

“Japanese campaigner Kaori Mikata-Pralat [from Kick Nuclear] read out a statement on behalf of a group pursuing legal action against the Tokyo Electric Power Company over the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

“Explaining that Fukushima had alerted her to the dangers, she told Cheshire Live: ‘I wasn’t quite aware of the scale of the problem of the nuclear industry.’

She has met victims of nuclear accidents, adding: ‘what they want is this tragedy should not be repeated anywhere in the world. Fukushima people suffered a lot.’

“Kaori said the ocean had also been poisoned.  Even nuclear power stations functioning normally affect the eco-system as sea and river water were used to cool the reactors with the hot water put back, harming fish and plant life.

“Pointing at the sun, fellow protester Philip Gilligan said: ‘That nuclear power station up there is supplying the energy.  It’s the only nuclear power station we want.  So the energy coming to earth could easily be used with zero carbon output and zero nuclear.  The problem is we need a bomb.  And it’s hidden in statements like ‘energy as cheap as water’ which was current when Sellafield went critical in the ‘70s’.

“He said in fact nuclear power was ‘hugely expensive’.”

Two officials from the plant came out to talk to the protestors.

Kaori from Japanese Against Nuclear UK has posted a video-diary of the event on twitter.   See https://mariannewildart.wordpress.com/2020/03/05/50-years-of-enriching-the-future

FUKUSHIMA UPDATE 2020

Since August 2011, Kick Nuclear and Japanese Against Nuclear UK have organised a weekly Friday vigil outside the Japanese Embassy to remind visitors to the Embassy and passers-by of the continuing 2011 nuclear disaster at Fukushima and calling for the UK to give up nuclear power.  Rik, a regular on the vigil, has been producing regular updates, published in English with a Japanese translation, on the unfolding of the disaster.

The recently-published 2020 Update starts by warning athletes and spectators, intending to go to the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer, of some of the dangers they will face.  Here is an extract from the Update on this issue:

“Nine years ago, three nuclear reactors melted down in Fukushima.  For nine years Japan has put enormous effort into dealing with – and downplaying – the disaster.  Why the downplaying and denial?  After nine years the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is still dangerous, while further dangers still lurk in the food, water, soil and air.  Could it be to protect the Japanese nuclear industry and its embedded bureaucrats?

This past year more evidence has emerged of the highly-radioactive microparticles to which Japan’s Olympic guests risk being exposed this summer.  These are microparticles of nuclear reactor fuel, 2-3 micrometres in size and rich in caesium.  It is believed that they were formed when reactor 3 exploded, its fuel vapourising at 3,000ºC then rapidly cooling and condensing.

These microparticles have been found as far as 320km away from the nuclear power plant and 200km away in Tokyo, while 80km away, topsoil in some areas has been found to contain as many as 100 particles per gram.  They are glassy, near-insoluble and so tiny that they float like dust and, if breathed-in, they penetrate lung tissue and lodge there, permanently, bombarding the surrounding cells with radiation.  This can cause cancer.  Astonishingly it seems that they have never been part of the public health reaction.

All Olympic visitors are at risk of receiving higher doses of radiation than need be.  They can’t avoid breathing, and hot summer air can be dusty.  While the South Korean athletes will bring their own food, water and radiation-detectors, other visitors may not be aware of the risks and many will be unable to read labelling, ask about where their rice, tea, plums, etc. are from, or read radiation survey results.  It appear that the Japanese government is going out of its way to hide and deny rather than help visitors and residents with this information.

(A copy or copies of the 2020 Update can be obtained from the editor at request – contact details under masthead.)

ENVIRONMENTAL PETITION AGAINST SIZEWELL C

Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) are collecting signatures for a petition.  They write: “EDF, wanting to begin preparation works for Sizewell C [have] submitted a planning application to East Suffolk Council for permission to demolish the 100-year old Coronation Wood and turn a large area of priority habitat acidic grassland (Pillbox Field) into a car park.

“East Suffolk Council granted permission in November 2019 for, in effect, Coronation Wood and other areas of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to be trashed.

“TASC consider this to be unlawful as Sizewell C has not been given the go-ahead and may never be built.”

Fukushima – Invisible Fallout documentary from CRIIRAD March 2020

Screenshot from 2020-03-11 16-41-06

Nuclear disasters like those of Chernobyl and Fukushima cause massive releases of radioactive substances to the environment and lasting contamination of large areas. They are accompanied by lies about the severity of the contamination and the extent of the health risks. The manipulations are all the easier since the radioactivity cannot be seen. Given its aging nuclear fleet, France is particularly affected by nuclear risks.

Written and produced by the association CRIIRAD (Independent Research and Information Commission on RADioactivity) and directed by Cris Ubermann, the film “Invisibles Retombées” is based on the missions carried out by the CRIIRAD laboratory in Japan, to make this invisible radioactivity palpable and the consequences for the populations affected by the fallout. It reports on meetings with residents of contaminated areas and measurements of radiation levels carried out alongside them.

Norways Nuclear Naughtiness – Censored Secrets and Haldens Hurtful History

The Norwegian nuclear reactor that recently shut down is estimated to  cost some 20 billion Kroner. A lack of transparency overshadows the whole project against the recommendations of the IAEA`s report on the Failings of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

On  the January 29, Martiniussen and Peterson sent a complaint to the Civil Ombudsman requesting transparency and good practice be followed by giving details of the plans for a nuclear waste dump.

They were refused access to crucial documentation that should have been released to the public (Tax Paying funders) documenting a meeting between the Norwegian Minister of Industry and the Director-General of the OECD-NEA,

How to blank out history, the present and the future

The only major information to their request for data was the letter “d” on page 4.

The scary issue here is that Many countries including Russia funded aspects of the IFA nuclear experiments at Halden. The site was closed down in a furor of condemnation and suspicion. Was the nuclear industry allied to the Norwegian Salmon industry? Many questions remained to be answered!

antibiotics-norway-630

Totally unrelated Salmon picture that didnt end up in Russia

Norway, having no experience in nuclear waste turned to the French nuclear company Orano and the Swedish company Studsvik,. Not the best idea in the world as these companies eyed an opportunity for profit and maybe, just maybe a few kilos of moldy farm salmon as well. But we will never know because of the Letter D (The only letter to be transparently offered to the FOI request by these 2 brave and intrepid sleuths).

Norway is now left with 17 tonnes of highly active, spent nuclear fuel thanks to those dastardly Russians and their American hug bunnies.

“All technical options are more or less known already, and NND’s general assessments of different directions cannot be kept secret”

But they are actually a secret of great National importance. So are the farmed Salmon deals that are also not to transparent (Possibly against OECD guidelines, but we will never know the truth!)

The Ministry of Trade and Industry claims that information must be kept secret for competition reasons. Luckily for the dodgy companies that will, may (we really dont know) be involved or how they will be involved. Shades of Fukushima radioactive Salmon perhaps?

fukushima-salmon-fish1

Both the Minister of Industry and Employees in the Ministry of Trade and Industry Have decided to take a more top down anti democratic approach to transparency.

That is why it is also crucial for TU’s social mission, to pursue cases where the authorities deny the citizens access. The Public Law is in practice the guarantee of the citizens that it is possible to control those we have given power and authority to carry out important social tasks.”

Must have a public conversation

The waste is dangerous and has a whole series of unknowns attached to it.

“Furthermore, the Norwegian nuclear fuel to be treated is of a metallic type that hardly any other country has. Therefore, there is no market for the treatment methods Studsvik investigates on behalf of NND. The treatment methods are specially designed for the Norwegian nuclear waste. The general methods Studsvik can offer were also publicly known through a report that was published in 2014.”

The request for data (More than the letter D) is nearly two years old.

“The Civil Ombudsman is the only body where it is possible to examine the ministry’s crush in unnecessary secrecy.”

So pre planning before the reactor was quickly ignored amongst the barrage of Russian troll bots and dubious bloggers highlighting the polluting and dangerous ways of the Halden reactor that proved that this should not be a private conversation only between two people.

“There are representatives at the highest level. In that case, the inhabitants must subsequently have the opportunity to gain insight into what is being discussed.”

Nuclear waste dump proposal has many Ontario First Nations worried – Canada

Published: January 24, 2020 By Cory Bilyea

Follow this blog for updates. There will be updates in coming days

Nuclear waste dump proposal has many Ontario First Nations worried

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is running out of time to find a permanent solution for storing radioactive nuclear waste.

Dry storage containers, the current method of storing contaminated items, have a minimum life span of fifty years and is ‘80s technology, according to the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO), a non-profit overseen by the government.

A permanent dumpsite is needed for low and intermediate-level nuclear waste. The secure Bruce nuclear site in Kincardine, Ont., is the proposed location but it’s on the unceded territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON).

The items, including contaminated worker clothing and tools, could be radioactive for 100 years while resins, filters and used reactor components could be toxic for 100,000 years, according to NWMO.

These items need to be buried in something called a deep geologic repository (DGR), which will be buried 680 metres underground, deeper than the CN Tower is tall.

A ratification vote has been called by the SON and will be held collectively on Chippewas of Saugeen First Nations at the James Mason Memorial, Culture & Recreation Centre and on Chippewas of Nawash First Nation at the Cape Croker Community Centre on Jan. 31.

Talks with OPG and several information sessions have been held to date.  A detailed information booklet is available for the nearly 4,000 band members who are eligible to vote.

The voting age has been lowered to 16 and there will be a special information session for young people on Jan. 25-26 at the Outdoor Education Centre, between Sauble Beach and Wiarton.

Two community members said concerns over the proposal have been heightened by the accidental emergency broadcast message that was sent to thousands of people from the Pickering nuclear plant early on Sunday, Jan. 12.

London resident Jane Meathrel said in a Facebook post, the waste site should be located “as far away as possible from the Great Lakes. I do not trust ‘the experts’ that it is not dangerous.”

Concerns about the adverse impacts on water quality are a key reason people around the power plant are saying no to nuclear waste being buried so close to their homes and livelihoods. Many rely on the fish from Lake Huron for food and income.

“We the people who live on this continent are well aware that we have the worlds greatest freshwater resources,” said Sue Boles, who leases land for a cottage in Neyaashiinigaaming. “We have a duty and an obligation to protect it for future generations and the world.”

Boles brings her grandson to the beach near her cottage to swim every year.

President and CEO of Bruce Power, Mike Rencheck, was not available for comment,  but said on their website, “We recognize our role and work to ensure our decision-making process incorporates environmental, social, cultural and economic systems.”

Saugeen resident and band member Kim George is voting no and if she had a voice when the plant was first built, she would have said no then too.

“I think most of us have always had an underlying fear of the nuke plant,” she said. “The planned nuclear DGR is compounding that fear.”

Online voting has begun for off-reserve band members and will be open until Jan. 31.

Even with a yes vote, there will still be many years, possibly decades before the facility is built.

Ontario Power Generation has guaranteed that if the vote is no, they will abide by the decision and begin to look for another location.

A spoon full of sugar helps the radioactive oatmeal go down

When MIT and Quaker Oats paired up to conduct experiments on unsuspecting young boys

smithsonianmag.com

When Fred Boyce and dozens of other boys joined the Science Club at Fernald State School in 1949, it was more about the perks than the science. Club members scored tickets to Boston Red Sox games, trips off the school grounds, gifts like Mickey Mouse watches and lots of free breakfasts. But Fernald wasn’t an ordinary school, and the free breakfasts from the Science Club weren’t your average bowl of cereal: the boys were being fed Quaker oatmeal laced with radioactive tracers.

28417249735_b7754855af_b

The Fernald State School, originally called The Massachusetts School for the Feeble-Minded, housed mentally disabled children along with those who had been abandoned by their parents. Conditions at the school were often brutal; staff deprived boys of meals, forced them to do manual labor and abused them. Boyce, who lived there after being abandoned by his family, was eager to join the Science Club. He hoped the scientists, in their positions of authority, might see the mistreatment and put an end to it

We didn’t know anything at the time,” Boyce said of the experiments. “We just thought we were special.” Learning the truth about the club felt like a deep betrayal.

The boys didn’t find out the whole story about their contaminated cereal for another four decades. During a stretch between the late 1940s and early 1950s, Robert Harris, a professor of nutrition at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, led three different experiments involving 74 Fernald boys, aged 10 to 17. As part of the study, the boys were fed oatmeal and milk laced with radioactive iron and calcium; in another experiment, scientists directly injected the boys with radioactive calcium.

The Fernald students’ experiment was just one among dozens of radiation experiments approved by the Atomic Energy Commission. Between 1945 and 1962, more than 210,000 civilians and GIs were exposed to radiation, often without knowing it. What seems unthinkable in today’s era of ethics review boards and informed consent was standard procedure at the dawning of the Atomic Age.

Shocking update (2013) on the citizens of Pypriat (Chernobyl disaster) repost

On Sunday the 27 April 2013 in a little room somewhere off Grays Inn road London, a meeting took place. In this meeting was Ms Tamara Krasitskava of the Ukrainian NGO “Zemlyaki”.

 

In this meeting she quoted that only 40 percent of the evacuees that moved to Kiev after the disaster are alive today! And lets leave the statistics out of it for a moment and we find out of 44,000 evacuated to Kiev only 19,000 are left alive. None made it much passed 40 years old

…..3.2 million with health effects and this includes 1 million children…

Humanitarian and Activist Adi Roche accepts ‘Best Limited Series’ award on behalf of cast and crew of HBO and Sky’s mini-series ‘Chernobyl’

28 Jan 2020

In an unusual departure at tonight’s UK National Television Awards ceremony in London, one of Ireland’s leading humanitarian aid activists Adi Roche has accepted the award for Best New Drama which was won by the HBO and Sky’s acclaimed mini-series ‘Chernobyl’.

Sister Pictures and Sky invited Adi Roche to accept the award on their behalf in recognition of the inspiring work which she has been doing with the victims of the deadly Chernobyl nuclear accident over the past 3o years. Traditionally, the producers and cast of a film accept such awards.

In accepting the award Adi, Roche Founder and Voluntary CEO of Chernobyl Children International, said;

“This award-winning series revealed to a global TV audience the true heroes of Chernobyl.  It has shone a light on the brave men and women who suffered and sacrificed, saving millions of lives…often at the cost of their own. So tonight I would also like to accept this award on behalf of all of them.  Because, be in no doubt, by giving their very lives they prevented an even greater catastrophe… one that would have lasted thousands of years.”

 

The Liquidators – the men who saved the world

 

Liquidators

 

Adi has been honoured by these ‘Liquidators’ in the past for acknowledging their plight.  Long-time friend and supporter Valeriy Zaytsyev, bestowed his ‘Liquidator medal’ on to Adi, a medal was received for his service in clean-up efforts following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster on April 6, 2016 in Gomel, Belarus.  Zaytsyev was an officer in the Soviet Army and on May 30, 1986, one month after the accident, received orders to head to the 30km Chernobyl exclusion zone, where he participated in decontamination operations.

“While I was there, I came down with a high fever and after four days, blood poured from his mouth, nose and ears. In the years afterwards I lost all my teeth, was operated on for cataracts, a condition common among liquidators, and survived a heart attack.” (Valeriy Zaytsyvey).

 

Who is Adi Roche?

 

Adi

 

Roche was one of the first responders to the Chernobyl Disaster and has worked to protect countless vulnerable people since the immediate aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 by providing support to children living in the affected areas. She formally founded Chernobyl Children International (CCI) a UN non-profit organisation in 1991 to develop programmes that restore hope, alleviate suffering and protect current and future generations in the Chernobyl regions.

“The impact of that shocking nuclear accident can never be undone: so many people across Europe and beyond continue to feel the impact of its deadly legacy to this day. My charity, Chernobyl Children International, works with those children, families and communities still affected, and we applaud this new telling of a story that had all but faded from people’s memories,” said Adi Roche.

 

Chernobyl Children International and the UN

 

 

In its campaign to raise worldwide awareness of the terrifying reality of the Chernobyl explosion, CCI has developed close working relations with the United Nations and is a United Nations Non-Governmental Organisations accredited development organisation, the only charity working in the region to be honoured with such status.

On the 26 of April 2016, Adi gave a landmark address to the UN General Assembly in New York. In an unprecedented move the Belarusian UN delegation provided Adi with their speaking time at the General Assembly discussion on Chernobyl in recognition of the international role Ireland and Chernobyl Children International has played in helping the victims of the Chernobyl catastrophe. It was the first time an ordinary person (non-diplomat/non-political person) has been extended the honour of speaking at the UN General Assembly during a country’s allocated time.  The UN has also designated the 26 April as “International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day.”

Adi Roche’s Work to Date

 

 

A National Television Award being accepted by someone who is a humanitarian and not a performer is a most unusual occurrence and is an amazing recognition of the contribution that CCI and the Irish people have made to support those affected by the nuclear fallout in Ukraine and Belarus. To date 26,500 children have visited Ireland on Rest and Recuperation breaks and €107 million has been given in aid.

New danger of Fukushima radioactive and toxic contamination in small particles found

In a new report using estimated spread of highly toxic and radioactive particles has been reported in a new study. Looking at an area close to the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster zone throws some light on a previously ignored aspect of possible health effects.

Highlights

The distribution of Cs-rich microparticles emitted from the FDNPP is determined.

Cs-rich microparticles account for a significant fraction of FDNPP-deposited Cs.

The timing and source of the Cs-rich microparticle formation has been estimated.

1-s2.0-S0045653519322581-fx1_lrg

Over the past 9 years, the nuclear industry has reported on the dose of radiation (as found in bananas) as the primary danger to the health and well being of the citizens of the Fukushima Prefecture and surrounding prefectures. Using debatable measuring techniques they tell us that there are no major health effects. The dose method of measurement itself has been widely debated among UNSCEAR members and the wider scientific community.

There has also been some debate on the problems with the internal contamination of humans and animals and resultant health effects.

The new study shows us that this debate has now moved further away from the biased claims of the nuclear industry sponsored experts and towards the more balanced risk assessment proponents.

First is the issue of micro (nano) particles that can bypass the Blood Brain Barrier and lodge in the brain and this too, is an issue to wildlife, livestock and fish health also, those consuming such produce. There may also be an issue concerning the consumption of plant matter so contaminated with these micro-particles.

It raises some issues on the decontamination efforts being done by the Japanese Government concerning the movement of contamination from highly polluted forests that will never be cleaned up for hundreds of years (concerning radioactive Cesium 137 particularly) to decontaminated areas as had been reported recently in the Japanese media and elsewhere.

More studies need to be funded by independent scientists to connect the different studies and connect them together to reach a greater understanding of the process`s involved concerning health and environmental impacts from nuclear disasters. These new findings add weight to the United Nations Rapporteurs concerns discussed in his report on Japan.

Link to the end of the Fissionline nuclear info website and nuclear expert Prof Geraldine Thomas`s OBE? #RIP and #RIPA

UPDATE on Prof Thomas here with sources

nuclear-news

Unfortunately the Fissionline journal has ceased its publishing and has deleted its content. I have saved some important journals and have added links below to the 3 surviving files left in my possession for you to download for free (as evidence of a well funded nuclear cover up).

Within that vast repository of knowledge was information about the British Nuclear Test Veterans campaign for justice because of the health effects on the veterans and their children by the nuclear weapons testing carried out by the UK Government. As well as fighting for justice for these victims, Fissionline also challenged the Ministry of Defense (MoD) and UK nuclear industry for their complicity in covering up the health effects from nuclear reactor disasters such as Fukushima, Chernobyl and Semipalantisk (Soviet Kazakhstan) etc.
