Happy New Year!

Even on the day that the new President of the United States, Trump, takes office we enter the new year fulll of hope and ambition. Together we will keep working to create a reliable, affordable and sustainable energy-future without nuclear power. In this newsletter we will keep you updated on all the brave people that organise events and actions to work towards a sustainable future. We strongly believe in citizen's actions and hope to inspire you all to engage in activities organised by grassroot groups and NGO's all over the globe.

Feel free to share this newsletter. For more background information, in-depth content and longer stories on the struggle against nuclear power, one should read the Nuclear Monitor, published as a magzine, 20 issues per year. We wish you a fruit- and peacefull strong 2017! 

Portugese protest against Spanish radwaste

About 250 people demonstrated in front of the Spanish consulate in Lisbon against the Almaraz nuclear power plant and its planned nuclear waste dump, 100 kilometers from Portugal. The Portugese Government has filed a compliant with Brussel, as the design of the waste dump has not incorporated a study on cross-border impacts and so is against European rules. 

Demonstration in Antwerp, March 11

Very close to one of the biggest harbours (Antwerp) of Europe, in Doel, Belgium, 4 old nuclear reactors are slowly falling apart, technical and political.

But it takes too long and its too dangerous to wait for more incidents to happen. Doel 4 was hit by an act of sabotage (August 2014). Untill today no-one knows who did it. Doel 3 is 'famous' for its cracks in its reactorvessel. All 4 reactors have suffered many incidents and accidents in the past years. The Belgium Government has decided to postpone closure with ten years. On March 11, 6 years after Fukushima, Belgium and Dutch groups take to the streets in Antwerp. WISE supports the demonstration and organises a bus with Dutch participants. More information (in Dutch) on this site.
