HANT Activity since AGM

  • On 17 March Chairperson Tor Justad provided a HANT input to a CND Conference in Helensburgh called "Unsafe Scotland"
  • The Conference included several; presentation about the dangers involved in any movement of nuclear materials - both those related to nuclear weapons being transported to Faslane and the weapons store at Coulport. These materials go by road from Burghfield in the south of England and pose a danger to all populations along the road routes used
  • The HANT presentation related to the latest position on the transport of nuclear materials from Dounreay by air, rail and sea to Dounreay and the US
  • HANT continues to campaign against these transports which pose unacceptable risks to populations, the environment and industries which rely on clean seas and land
  • On 9 April 2 HANT Committee Members met with Simon Evans of the Cromarty Peace Group to plan the proposed joint event at Inverness Airport in July to highlight the transport of nuclear waste through Inverness by rail
  • In May HANT was quoted in a headline article in the Caithness Courier related to another US Air Force
  • from  Wick Airport to the US via RAF Lossiemouth. HANT had been informed by a supporter that the boundary fence at RAF Lossiemouth could be entered easily by terrorists or others trying to cause a nuclear incident which could be catastrophic. Yet another example of the unacceptable risks posed by these transports
  • HANT also had a letter published in the Press & Journal calling the exchange of nuclear materials between Dounreay and the US a "sham deal" as the UK is due to receive radioactive isotopes from the US for medical use at a time when there is no shortage of these isotopes in the UK
