Upper Austrians to intensify fight against Temelin

02-03-2001

Member of the Green party in Upper Austria say they intend to intensify their fight against the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Although party representatives refused to give specific details of future protest actions, they said their main aim is to prevent the import of nuclear energy into Austria. The Temelin nuclear power plant went back on line earlier this week after a shutdown last month, and opposition to the station in Austria remains strong. The issue of Temelin has severely strained relations between Austria and the Czech Republic in recent months.
