2013 Chernobyl Day

The following statement is from www.chernobyl-day.org.

In the world today, thirty-one countries are using nuclear power to produce energy, which represents more than 400 reactors. How many people do know that a chain of dirty, pollutant and uncontrolled fuels hides behind nuclear plants, which is described as “virtuous cycle” by the nuclear industry?

Each step of this chain generates considerable radioactive pollutions, leads to incessant dangerous transports, exposes the population to extreme risks and produces nuclear waste that stays radioactive and dangerous for millions of years.

Together, let’s prevent the nuclear industry from poisoning our lives and break the nuclear chain!

From Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of April 2013
3 days of action
to highlight the uranium road
