Anyone thinking of pushing this as a Commonwealth issue?

Also pls note trespass at Hinkley Point for Mon 8th October:

In Koodankulam India, a Tsunami and earthquake prone zone, a 
non-violent mass movement is resisting the activation of a nuclear power 
plant which violates the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) 
Safety Guidelines. The Indian state has militarised the entire area and 
charged 55,000 peaceful protestors with criminal offences including 8000 
with sedition.

In Hinkley in Somerset, a concerted peaceful struggle is taking place 
to prevent the setting up of the largest nuclear reactor in Britain – 
the first in 20 years, and the dumping of UK 's stockpile of high level 
nuclear waste at Hinkley Point.

Why, at a time when the rest of Europe is turning away from nuclear 
power, is Britain adding to its 18 nuclear power and nuclear dumping 
sites, with four more nuclear power plants planned by 2019? Why is David 
Cameron actively exporting civil nuclear technology to India, a country 
with an abysmal industrial safety record?

Who benefits? Why is global solidarity between people resisting nuclear 
power plants crucial?

Speakers: Caroline Lucas MP; Kate Hudson  (CND); Amrit Wilson (South
