Our new petition to Bristol City Council is now online on the Council website. We need 3500 signatures from people living, working or studying in Bristol by the end of October to have the topic discussed by Council.
“We the undersigned petition Bristol City Council to rejoin the Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) organisation.”
(for background go to the petition site)
Visit http://epetitions.bristol.gov.uk/epetition_core/view/nuclearfreebristol to add your signature.
We will also be seeking Councillors to propose a motion to get the Council to rejoin NFLA. Once today’s election results are in we will be writing to all councillors to ask for their support. There will also be a letter for you to send (by email) to your local ward councillors.
Campaigners challenge Nuke-Research in Bristol
Bristol University got £1.3 million (2010-2012) and funding for a Chair in Material Science for Nuclear Weapons Research from tax-payers money http://www.medact.org/resources/atoms-peace-atomic-weapons-establishment-uk-universities-2/
“Britain’s existing Trident nuclear weapons system could incinerate 45 million people at the press of a button. Yet the Government is planning to develop it further! Shouldn’t this money and expertise be better spent on essentials of life, not planning death and destruction on an unbelievable scale?”
Join local anti-nuclear power & weapons campaigners
