1 Feedback on Anti Wylfa stall held last Saturday. Leaflets distributed with key arguments against Wylfa and information about the anti-nuclear conference in Aberytswyth on Saturday 11 March commemorating the disaster at Fukushima. Interesting discussions held with passers-by, very little opposition. PAWB are very grateful to members of the Green Party who supported the stall, including the Deputy Leader of the Greens Amelia Womack. Further cooperation between the organisations is planned. We also thanked the Greens for organising and paying for a bus down to Aberystwyth (donations on bus). To register and join bus see link on Dates section below.

The group discussed a very informative article Reading the Future of the West Bank in its Contours by Sarah Helm, Guardian Monday 13 February https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/feb/13/west-bank-east-jerusalem-israel .The political situation on the West Bank is interpreted through the eyes of a Palestinian cartographer. He states that it is too late now for a two-state solution. (Perhaps Donald Trump has read this article - joke).
Linda suggested that we invite Alice Grey, Ben Alofs, John Butler and other interested parties to a discussion with the group about best tactics given the present circumstances.
