Tervola, Lapland, Finland 20 – 26 of July 2009

Welcome to join our protest camp in finnish Lapland next summer! We won't allow this corner of the world, that the borders of the finnish government surrounds, to become a paradise of the nuclear industry!

Olkiluoto 3, The fifth reactor in the country is now under construction in Western Finland. Over a thousand mistakes have already been documented in the construction work. The cost of the construction is now twice the original budget, and the project is already three years behind schedule.

However, the Finnish government seems so excited about this success, that they are happy to let nuclear industry take care of the economy of the country in the future as well. The recent dramatic decrease in energy consumption has not affected the plans for possibly even three more reactors.

The problem with final storage for nuclear waste is said to be solved here, for the first time in the world. A huge grave has already been dug for high level radioactive waste, despite that the project is seen as absurd in expert circles.

As Finland has a reputation of having an exceptionally positive attitude toward the nuclear industry, it's not surprising that companies interested in uranium mining come here as well. There are almost 20 applications for uranium mining under way at the moment, in various places in Eastern and Northern Finland.

This year we´ll have a protest camp in Tervola, Lapland, near the Simo municipality, where the company Fennovoima (owned by German energy giant Eon) has bought land for building a new nuclear plant, close to one of the last open salmon rivers on the European continent. Small communities with economical problems are easy to buy, when the local politicians are more interested in the money than in the well-being of nature and the community in the long term. We´ll also pay a visit to areas of uranium prospecting.

The aim is to make the camp a space, where local movements against uranium prospecting and nuclear projects, NGOs that fight against the Finnish government's ridiculous energy policy, radical ecological groups, international anti-nuclear activists, and of course anyone else interested in the issues, can gather together, unite, and build a stronger movement. The program will provide information, skill sharing and action. Also, the aim is for the camp to be a space for sharing our visions about a safer and nicer future, and for learning to live respecting both the nature and the people around us!

Fennovoima office in Simo attacked

Fennovoima is a Finnish company of a big number of local electricity companies and with the German EON company as a main stakeholder. They want to establish a third nuclear reactor site in Finland besides Olkiluoto and Lovisa. In Simo the Mayor welcomed Fennovoima and the idea of a NPP at this location.

On July 24, 2009 - at the same time as the camp took place - obviously anti-nuclear activists attacked the Fennovoima office in Simo. The graffitis say "We take the profits, you get the radiation" and "We offer you cancer, radioactive waste, environmental destruction...a warm feeling for future generations".

This was the first action against atomic power in Lapland. Hopefully these won't be the last direct actions against the nuclear industry in the North of Finland...
