Demands made in Austria for a nuclear free Europe.

13-06-2003

A petition for a nuclear-free Europe is currently underway in Austria. It's been organised by Greenpeace. The environmental group wants to do away with the Eurotom treaty which regulates nuclear power in Europe. The agreement dates back to the 1950s and may remain unchanged as part of the EU constitution. Greenpeace is also asking Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schüssel to form an alliance of anti nuclear states.
