STOP Hinkley Point C: campaign against EU decision

All citizens of the EU have the right to appeal the recent decision to approve massive public subsidies that will enable one of the largest nuclear power stations in the world to be built at Hinkley Point in Somerset.

EWS (Elektrizitätswerk Schönau), a clean energy cooperative based in Germany, has filed an appeal against the decision and more than 40,000 people have already joined the campaign.

British residents will be the first to pay for this decision (both as tax payers and as the potential victims of a nuclear accident).  EWS has translated their letter of complaint into English. You can add your name (or submit your own text) at: https://www.ews-schoenau.de/campaign.html

All of the campaign files and background information are available in German, French and English. Please help the spread the word and get more signatures.
