DISASTER ANNIVERSARY PROTEST.

Byline: KELLY WILLIAMS

ANTI-nuclear campaigners staged a protest on Anglesey on the first anniversary of the Fukushima disaster.

People Against Wylfa B (PAWB) staged an event by the Menai Suspension Bridge yesterday a year after the earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, triggering a battle to prevent a nuclear catastrophe. The group are against a new nuclear power station on Anglesey.

A PAWB spokesman said: "As part of the International Day of Action PAWB held an event with support of Cymdeithas yr Iaith, Greenpeace, CND Cymru and Bangor and Ynys Mn Peace Group to show solidarity with the thousands who have suffered following the disaster."

Dylan Morgan, coordinator for PAWB, challenges public bodies to say how they would cope with a serious accident at Wylfa, and evacuate much of North West Wales. He says: "Whilst earthquakes of the magnitude of the one in Japan are not likely here, human error, mechanical or technological failure or even terrorism could bring a similar crisis on Ynys Mn."
