A new “united front” of non-government-organisations will launch at a Green Nuclear Free Wales conference next weekend. It will bring together CND Cymru, the NFLA Welsh forum, CADNO, and PAWB to launch the Welsh Anti-Nuclear Alliance (WANA), which will campaign against the threats to Wales from nuclear power. Supporters said the aim will be to oppose the building of a new Nuclear power stations Wylfa B, on Ynys Mon, and the dumping of possibly radioactive mud from Hinkley Point C in Somerset outside Cardiff Bay. Tim Richards, Secretary of the South Wales Anti-Nuclear Alliance, said the move was essential after the Westminster Government backed the continued development of the nuclear power industry. “We believe that Wales is being treated with contempt as the Westminster Government is determined to press ahead with Nuclear power despite the fact that has largely been abandoned in the rest of the world, because of the risks involved,” he said.
