Demonstration at West Berkshire Council Offices, Newbury, against AWE

* Help stop Berkshire's new nuclear factory!
* Join the demonstration - West Berkshire Council Offices, Newbury.
Wednesday 4th March from 5.30 pm.

West Berkshire Council will decide whether to give planning permission for a new nuclear warhead processing facility at AWE Burghfield at a special meeting this Wednesday. The new facility - essential for the construction of new British nuclear weapons - is to be located in a flood risk area just outside Reading, one of the largest urban areas in the South of England.

Please join us at the West Berkshire Council Offices in Market Road, Newbury, from 5.30 pm next Wednesday (4th March) to demonstrate against the new warhead factory and to attend the Council's Eastern Area Planning Committee meeting. Bring banners, flags, and fancy dress to mark the occasion. BBC South TV have already said they will be attending to film the demo, so we need a good turnout to show the
strength of feeling against the Burghfield development.

Travel from Reading: 17.04 train to Newbury. Meet near the destination screens at 16.45. The Council Offices are a two minutes walk from Newbury station across the car park. If you can't catch the 17.04 train you are welcome to come down later in the evening - the committee meeting is expected to last until around 19.30.

Thanks for your help and look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
