Nuclear power debate, London, Monday 11 January

The government has committed itself to the development of nuclear power stations across the UK arguing that nuclear power is the answer to the current problems of climate change and unemployment.

But is it really the case that nuclear power is the best solution to these problems for both workers and environmentalists?

Battersea and Wandsworth TUC’s Red/Green Alliance will be hosting the Great Nuclear Power Debate in an attempt to find the answer to this question.

Chris Baugh, assistant general secretary for the PCS union and Ben Ayliffe, senior energy and climate campaigner for Greenpeace will be arguing the case against nuclear power.

Peter Kane, the GMB convenor for Selafiled nuclear power plant and Tristan Denton from the Nuclear Industry Association will be arguing the case for nuclear power.

Monday 11th January at the Public and Commercial Services Union HQ, 160 Falcon Road, Clapham junction, from 7:30pm
