Huge protest against nuclear waste dumps in Australia

Image ABC News - N. Cage

About 3.000 protestors rallied at Parliament House in Adelaide on October 15th against proposed nuclear waste dumps, with Aboriginal families affected by nuclear testing at Maralinga among the crowd.

The Aboriginal Traditional Owners are facing a push for an international high-level nuclear waste dump on their homelands.

Anti-nuclear demonstration in Lingen, Germany

Around 700 people demonstrated on October 29th in Lingen, sending a clear mesage of the necessity of immediately phasing out nuclear energy.
In Lingen fuel rods are made for nuclear power plants. Also for the Belgium nuclear power plants, which the German goverment wants to see shut down. But they still make the fuel rods... see the irony here?

Read more about the demo on the BI-Luechow Dannenberg website.
