It’s no longer in the news but a Japanese government report estimates that radiation released from the Fukushima nuclear power plant is now 168 times as much as that released by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

A school compost heap 125 miles away from Fukushima has radioactive Caesium more than three-times the levels of radioactive waste.

Sheffield is just 75 miles from the nearest nuclear power station at Heysham in Lancashire.

Nuclear power plants and weapons will be discussed at the National Green Party Conference at Hallam University on Sunday September 11, at 6pm.

Prof Masae Yuasa from Hiroshima City University will be on the panel of speakers to discuss the future of nuclear power post Fukushima, along with Kate Hudson, General Secretary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

This meeting will be free and open to the public, as are four discussions in the four-day conference, on tax avoidance, inequality, air pollution and care for the elderly.

It’s Minden Day

Every year, on August 1, the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry celebrates Minden Day because in 1959 six British regiments defeated a larger French force at the Battle of Minden. Ever since the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry has proudly worn a white rose behind their cap badge. August 1 is Minden Day. Yorkshire Day was created in 1975.
