Atomic Threats In The Baltic Sea Region/Call out
From Nuclear HeritageJump to navigationJump to search
Call out for a network strengthening anti-nuclear activities in the Baltic Sea region In the Baltic Sea region the atomic lobby is pushing for a number of nuclear projects increasing the threats facing people and environment in the area. New reactors, upgrading of nuclear power plants, repositories for hazardous atomic waste, new uranium mines... As if the existing legacy of atomic stations facilities and mines wouldn't be enough! Groups and citizens are struggling against these projects in many places, often faced to a strong alliance of nuclear companies, authorities and politicians benefiting from these developments. On the other hand the networks and cooperations of anti-nuclear groups and NGOs in the region mostly appear isolated and on low level. We see much potential to strengthen the anti-nuclear struggles of the groups, NGOs and individuals opposing the atomic technology, lobby and ideology. Making an effort we can learn about each other's topics and struggles, connect with each other, and support in campaigning, spreading the word, organizing information events or actions... All it needs is awareness of the interrelations and some time to be provided for this supraregional and international networking. With the "Atomic Threats In The Baltic Sea Region" project we are attempting to establish a framework and network to strengthen anti- nuclear struggles around the Baltic Sea. We want to connect activists with each other, help to spread the word on atomic threats and to increase the impact of anti-nuclear campaigns. A very first meeting to discuss and form this network/project will take place on September 20-23 in Döbeln/Germany. You are cordially invited to join us in this event. If you need support for your travel expenses, please contact us! We will try to make it possible for everyone to participate in this planning meeting. Please write to atomicbaltic AT nuclear-heritage.net to announce your participation in the meeting, to get more information or to ask for travel costs support! With the "Atomic Threats In The Baltic Sea Region" project we want to organize information events, campaign against nuclear power, investigate on atomic facilities and produce flyers and other materials to spread the word. Some first thoughts and information on this network/project is provided on our webpage: http://www.nuclear-heritage.net/index.php/Atomic_Threats_In_The_Baltic_Sea_Region So far, activists and groups from Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland are already active in this project. Two NGOs in Austria and the Netherlands are supporting us with their experiences and knowledge. We want to involve groups and individuals also from all other countries in the watershed of the Baltic Sea: Belarus, Denmark, Estonia, Russia, Sweden and Norway. And of course, we also aim on reaching more people and groups also in the countries involved to the project already. We are looking forward to your response! Talk soon!
