Austrian anti-nuclear protesters have demonstrated in Vienna against the recent Czech-Austrian agreement on the Temelin nuclear power plant. Driving a convoy of 40 vehicles through the streets of Vienna on Tuesday, they attempted to drum up more public opposition to the nuclear power plant, situated just 50 kms from the Austrian border. Members of the protest, called "Wake up Vienna", delivered a list of demands to the Czech Embassy and the Austrian Parliament warning of the dangers of nuclear power. The Austrian anti-nuclear lobby rejected an agreement reached last week by Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel and Czech Prime Minister Milos Zeman. Prague agreed to an environmental impact study sponsored by the European Union, and will not put Temelin into full operation until the study is completed. Austria's nuclear opponents, meanwhile, are demanding the plant be closed down for a thorough inspection.
