People Power against Nuclear Power! antinuclear action camp

Fennovoima nuclear power company plans to start building a new nuclear power plant on the ecologically valuable Hanhikivi Cape in Pyhäjoki, northwest of Finland. Let's stop this irresponsible and dangerous project!

Energy policy in Finland is still stuck on the centralized production of energy. The society is dependent on a few energy provider that collect the profits. Nuclear power is marketed as a solution for the climate crisis but this lie is easily uncovered: More and more fossil fuels are needed for the mining of uranium and for the placement of radioactive waste.

Nuclear power plants are the enemies of the more sustainable and decentralized renewable energy. The decentralized and horizontal production of energy is just one piece of the more equal society that we are headed to. The ecological and social crisis requires us to demolish the current model of economy and to build alternatives, where production provides equally for everyone's needs.

A struggle against one irresponsible project is part of the global struggle for maintaining the conditions for life on Earth. In recent years more and more people have successfully stopped ecologically and socially destructive projects by overturning political decisions. It is time to realize that also in Finland the acts of people are stronger than the words of politicians in changing the course of history.

Join us in stopping the construction of a 100 000-year problem, in its early stages!

People power against nuclear power! Anti-nuclear action camp is organized near Hanhikivi Cape June 8-21 by Hyökyaalto, a grassroots action network (Rising Tide Finland).

Consensus decision making is preferred. Any kind of discrimination based on gender, sexuality, ethnicity etc. is strictly forbidden. Party political or nationalist signs do not belong to the camp.
