Duncan Ball – Sentenced to 2 years for protesting against Sellafield. We stand in condemnation of the jail sentences handed out to the anti-fracking activists and believe they should be awarded medals instead of jail sentences. It was widely reported that these were the first jail sentences to be handed out in decades for environmental protest. Really? Does protest against the nuclear industry’s dangerous practices not count now? As recently as 2004 a whistleblower, a former Sellafield worker was handed a 2 year jail sentence. Is this the longest jail sentence handed to any environmental protester in the UK, EVER? Duncan’s sacrifice has been airbrushed from history even though a letter was sent to the Guardian pointing out the nuclear amnesia.
