Shoot: Nuclear Action Activist Chained on Railway of Nuclear Power Plant in Gösgen Switzerland

GP01UHX
At 7 clock this morning a dozen Greenpeace activists placed a box of iron with a weight of one and a half ton on the rails of the Nuclear Power Plant Gösgen, four activists then chained themselves to the box. With this action Greenpeace calls on the authorities and nuclear power station management to stop the nuclear waste transports to the French and British reprocessing plants immediately.
The nuclear power station operators and authorities have failed to act despite the clear law: because of the processing of Swiss nuclear waste, the sea is being polluted, and this is a crime in Switzerland. In addition, the amount of nuclear waste that has to be transported back to Switzerland and stored there will be multiplied. In recent months and years Greenpeace has virtually exhausted all legal means to stop the nuclear transports. But Greenpeace has not received a response to any of their complaints. Also residents from the reprocessing plants at Sellafield and La Hague have filed complaints at the Federal attorney, because their health is at risk because of the Swiss nuclear waste. At La Hague, every year 230 million litres of radioactive waste water is dumped into the sea at Sellafield. These incredible amounts of radioactivity that are released into the environment day after day have serious consequences for the people: children suffer significantly more from leukemia and thyroid problems. Even in house dust around Sellafield plutonium is present, the locally produced spinach is contaminated with 8000 becquerel / kg, the fish are contaminated, and last year even 1500 doves had to be killed, cast in concrete and disposed of as nuclear waste is. The Swiss authorities, however, held it unnecessary to prohibit the criminal release of radioactivity of the Swiss nuclear waste.
