Austrian anti-nuclear activists begin new border blockade

28-05-2001

Some 200 Austrian anti-nuclear activists begun a blockade of the biggest Czech-Austrian border crossing, Wullowitz-Dolni Dvoriste, on Sunday afternoon. The blockade was in protest at a Czech government report submitted to Austria on safety at the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Environmentalists say the report is useless, claiming that the material used to compile it is outdated.
