nam22. ‘Blockade Namibian Uranium’
Supporters of the Campaign Against the Namibian Uranium Contract (CANUC) held regular protests outside the British Nuclear Fuels processing plant at Springfields, near Preston in the north of England. This leaflet publicised a demonstration on 14 November 1986. Between 1977 and 1985 half of Britain’s uranium imports came from the Rossing mine in Namibia. RTZ operated the mine in defiance of UN resolutions. After 1985 Britain continued to re-export Namibian uranium to European and Japanese nuclear power plants.
