The event commemorated the dreadful nuclear accident at the Daiichi nuclear reactors in Fukushima exactly three years ago. It was attended by Molly Scott Cato, prospective member of the European parliament for the Green Party, Steven Parry-Hearn, the Labour party’s prospective parliamentary candidate for the Forest of Dean (who speaks out against nuclear despite his Party’s support for nuclear) and James Greenwood, who is the Green Party’s prospective parliamentary candidate for the Forest of Dean but who was speaking as a member of STAND.
This film by Philip Booth captures some of those speakers and the atmosphere of the afternoon. Over a 100 people came to hear the speeches and walk down to the Docks to throw flowers into the River Severn as a mark of respect and remembrance.
