German activists protest against Temelin

08-04-2001

Several hundred German anti-nuclear activists staged a protest demonstration against the Czech nuclear power station Temelin at a Czech-German border crossing at Bayerische Eisenstein on Saturday. They want to continue their protest actions until the controversial power station is closed down. They consider the plant, which combines Soviet-designed reactors with western control technology, as dangerous and see evidence of this in the series of technical problems that have troubled Temelin since going on-line last autumn.
