2013 Call

Chernobyl-Day: from uranium mine to nuclear waste, we are all concerned by nuclear power!

From Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of April 2013

3 days of action
to highlight the uranium road

On March 9th, 2013, while the catastrophes of Chernobyl and Fukushima are still ongoing, hundred of thousand people all around the world protested to demand nuclear phase-out.

The consequences of these nuclear accidents will remain for a long time. To prevent other catastrophes from happening and not to be the next victims, we have to stay mobilized.

In the world today, thirty-one countries are using nuclear power to produce energy, which represents more than 400 reactors. France is the country that relies the most on nuclear energy; it could be the next name on the list of contaminated areas. Beside, how many people do even know that a chain of dirty, pollutant and uncontrolled fuels hides behind nuclear plants, which is described as “virtuous cycle” by the nuclear industry?

Virtuous? However… extraction, transformation, enrichment, reactor use, reprocessing, military use; each of these steps 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.

Beyond the myth of fuel recycling and controlled management, the nuclear industry is actually unable to manage its facilities and continuously puts us in danger of accidents. From uranium mines in Niger and Australia to the La Hague reprocessing plants, from French MOX-fuel factories to Fukushima reactors, and not forgetting nuclear dump projects all over the world, the nuclear chain is everywhere and we are all affected by its pollutions.

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

From April 26th to the 28th, we will take actions everywhere in France against nuclear power and to highlight the secret road of uranium. If you are also organizing actions, we invite you to register them on this website, in order to show that the nuclear chain spreads everywhere in the world… just like our resistance!
