People in All Selected Sites Will Protest Against the Geological Disposal Facility Again

On Saturday 23rd April 2016, there will be held marches, marathon, concerts and other events to mark the joint protest in all seven sites in the Czech Republic which were chosen by the Radioactive Waste Repository Authority (RAWRA/SÚRAO) because of the siting process for a geological disposal facility. Mayors and inhabitants of the affected villages wish to draw attention to their fundamental disagreement with the possibility that highly dangerous radioactive waste lasting thousands of generations will end up under their homes.

In each of the seven sites, municipalities and associations adapted form of their protest events to the local conditions. However, they have got one thing in common - they want to alert to the unacceptable way in which the Czech Republic is solving the problem of spent nuclear fuel. There is a lack of the necessary legislation ensuring a better position of municipalities, no clear criteria are still not set up based on which the sites could be selected and it is not well justified whether the rush towards a single variant - the final geological disposal of radioctive waste - is the safest option.

The events are as follows:
