Beyond Nuclear is a partner in and a speaker at the forthcoming conference to oppose nuclear power in Wales to be held July 23 in the historic castle town of Caernarfon.

The conference has been convened to coordinate opposition to recent British and Welsh Government pronouncements supporting new nuclear power stations at Wylfa in Anglesey and Trawsfynydd in Gwynedd.

The conference, titled ‘A United Welsh Front against Nuclear Power’, has been convened by a coalition of Welsh campaign groups, CADNO (Cymdeithas Atal Dinistr Niwclear Oesol), CND Cymru (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament Wales), Cymdeithas Yr Iaith (the Welsh Language Society), PAWB (People against Wylfa-B), and WANA (the Welsh Anti-Nuclear Alliance), in partnership with British and international partners, the Nuclear Free Local Authorities and Beyond Nuclear.

A range of speakers will outline the case against nuclear at Wylfa and Trawsfynydd, highlight the financial and operational risks associated with the respective reactor designs, and talk up the prospects for a renewable energy future for Wales.

The conference will end with a symbolic signing of the Caernarfon Declaration outlining the strength of feeling against nuclear and the aspiration for a renewable future for Wales. A recording of the event will be available. Those who wish to join remotely, can do so via Zoom at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87091145751
