27-02-2001

Members of the international environmental organisation Greenpeace occupied the Vienna office of the German power utility E.ON on Monday. They were protesting against the renewal of test operations at the Czech Republic's Temelin nuclear power station. Greenpeace claimed E.ON was the biggest importer of electricity from the Czech Republic, including power produced by Temelin. Greenpeace demanded that E.ON terminates all contracts with the Czech Republic to prevent nuclear electricity from entering the national grid in nuclear-free Austria.
