Wales youth march against nukes

Members of the youth cohort of CND Cymru will be embarking on a 7-day march from Trawsfynydd Nuclear Power Station in Gwynedd to Wylfa Nuclear Power Station on Ynys Môn in September, in protest against the Westminster government’s decision to locate Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) on the decommissioned sites.

 

WHY WE ARE WALKING FROM TRAWSFYNYDD TO WYLFA

Sunday 4 – Saturday 10 September 2022

This decision came hand in hand with the growing frustration felt by
young people following the government’s ‘greenwashing’ of nuclear
energy; selling it as a form of clean, safe and homegrown energy in
the backdrop of the climate crisis. We are equally concerned about the
disastrous effects of uranium mining on the lands of indigenous people
in Australia as well as in areas of the Global South – not to mention
the links between nuclear power, the military and nuclear weapons.

The young people who have decided to march against the construction of
SMRs in Trawsfynydd and Wylfa want their voices heard in the debates
that will depict the future landscape in which they will have to live
in. They demand to see preparations for a genuinely green future and
the creation of jobs that will not come at the expense of the health
of workers and their communities, or the environment. Climate justice
cannot be achieved by nuclear energy.

Although the march will be youth-led, anyone wishing to join will be
most welcome. To support or register for the march, please contact
