The job of a political activist is to keep raising questions and alerting others to the various dangerous we all face.
After that it is on to the next question, and then the next question, until there are no more questions which need asking.
That’s fine for most issues,
but it only works when the issues are very clear,
or when it is very easy to put together all the information that’s to be found.
Yet what if information is being deliberately held back from us all?
Then much of the campaigning will revolve around finding out just what the facts might be.
This is very much so when it comes to campaigning about nukiller power, and undercover policing.
The lines which keep coming up include:-
– Commercial confidentiality.
– The Official secrets act.
All of which slow one down in terms of active campaigning.
That is why I am one of the 133 individuals who are calling for a list of all the political groups which were infiltrated by the police spies to be made public.
It’s a good just that the Undercover Research Group keeps working away to find out about the activities of former undercover police.
There is a very good network of anti-nukiller activists who share information with each other.
Mapping it out.
One of the most useful tools which I’ve discover in terms of looking at the nukiller issue are OS [ Ordinance survey ] maps, for they clearly show low lying lands near current the nukiller reactors.
After that I cross reference then with the UK flood maps
These maps clearly show what might well take place at these plants within the next 10 to 30 years.
The one for Dungeness is particularly interesting as it shows all the moorland to the north of the reactor site,
Many areas to the north and west are marked as: – Danger Area.
I’ll just keep looking at these maps, and keep asking just how new build can be justified while many of the existing reactors are going to be effected by rising tides.
