Aberthaw power station is killing us. Air pollution from the plant is responsible for an estimated 400 deaths per year.  At the same time, the power station is is fed by opencast coal mines in South Wales such as Ffos-y-Fran which impacts on local communities living next door.  At a global level, carbon emissions from the coal burned at Aberthaw power station are pushing us towards climate catastrophe.

Join Reclaim the Power, United Valleys Action Group, Bristol Rising Tide and the Coal Action Network for a public demonstration demanding the prompt closure of Aberthaw Coal power station and in support of renewable energy in South Wales.

  1. WE HAVE LIVED IN RHOOSE FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS, COMPLAINED MANY TIMES TO THE EPA/NRW OF WHAT WE CONSIDERED TO BE UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS OF POLUTION. WE HAVE NEVER BEEN INFORMED THAT THIS POLLUTION WAS DANGEROUS. ESPECIALLY, THE FACT THAT WE HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THE FALL OUT HAS BEEN ABOVE, AROUND AND INSIDE OUR PROPERTY WHEN THE WIND BLOWS FROM THE POWER STATION IN OUR DIRECTION. CLEARLY, THERE HAS BEEN A FAILURE TO INFORM US OF THE KNOWN DANGERS AND A DISREGARD TO OUR HEALTH AND WELLBEING. CLEARLY, THOSE RESPONSIBLE SHOULD NOW BE MADE ACCOUNTABLE.
