STOP STOLEN URANIUM POWERING THE BRITISH GRID!
In the 1970s and 1980s Britain imported uranium from Rio Tinto Zinc's Rossing mine in Namibia in contravention of UN resolutions that said the country's natural resources should only be sold with the consent of the UN Council for Namibia. The uranium was imported under contracts signed in the late 1960s by the UK Atomic Energy Authority and Rio Tinto Zinc (RTZ). The Campaign Against the Namibian Uranium Contract (CANUC) was set up in 1977 by the Anti-Apartheid Movement, the Haslemere Group and the Namibia Support Committee.
