Seminar 7pm on 7th October 2021. This event is organised by Greater Manchester & District CND, Nuclear Free Local Authorities, Beyond Nuclear, and Chernobyl Children’s Project UK. New nuclear plants in the UK will cause irreparable loss to biodiversity and wild places and harm and destroy the species who depend on these habitats for their survival. The Hinkley C reactors, already under construction on the Somerset coast, are projected to kill billions of fish. A similar fate awaits ocean life should Sizewell C, a two-reactor project on the Suffolk Coast, move forward. Situated in the most richly biodiverse region of the British Isles, Sizewell C would tear up land adjacent to one of the most precious nature preserves — RSPB Minsmere — home to once rare bird species including the avocet and the bittern. The proposed new Chinese reactor, at Bradwell in Essex, threatens to damage a fragile estuarine environment that is similarly rich in multiple species, especially bird life.
