HANT Launches Crowdfunder Appeal - Bulletin to Members & Supporters
1st March 2017
As indicated at the recent AGM in Inverness HANT has now launched a Crowdfunder Campaign Appeal.
HANT (Highlands Against Nuclear Transport) is active in raising awareness in the Highlands and beyond of the nuclear waste being transported by rail, sea and air from the Dounreay nuclear site in the far north of Scotland to Sellafield in Cumbria and to the US.

HANT’s campaign informs the general public along these routes of the dangers posed by these transports - we lobby the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, UK and Scottish Governments; and we work to gain political support to halt these movements and to store the materials at Dounreay under security and constant monitoring.
We achieve this by holding regular public meetings and events in the Highlands with expert speakers related to the environment, health & safety, emergency planning and nuclear transports.
We promote our campaign through social media, media coverage in local and national papers & TV, attending meetings and conferences related to nuclear issues and working in partnership with organisations sharing HANT's aims, including NFLA (Nuclear Free Local Authorities) and FOES (Friends of the Earth Scotland).
The target is £1000 which will cover one year’s campaigning costs which include publicity materials, hire of meeting rooms, IT supplies and out of pocket expenses for travel and accommodation for Committee Members and Supporters attending relevant meetings, demonstrations and awareness raising events.
The campaign will run until 26 April 2017 and we would encourage Member Supporters to donate to the Campaign and to encourage others also to donate – any amount will be welcomed.
