Bure Stop

“This project of gigantic ATOMIC UNDERGROUND POUBELLE at least 500m underground has been underway since 1994, as a result of the 1991 law on the management of nuclear waste. The second law of June 2006 focused on BURE, a clay site in the Meuse , near the Haute-Marne, via a pseudo “laboratory” of geological research. The third law of 2016 activates the beginning of Cigeo , via a so-called “pilot phase”, which has nothing to do with research. This is the first industrial phase of the project (about 25% of the estimated total cost!). In 2019, Andra must file its application for authorization to create (DAC) and the worksite would then start, if granted. However, many preparatory works, very controversial on the ground, were launched at the end of 2015. 15 km2 are annexed between 4 Meuse villages : Bure, Ribeaucourt, Bonnet and Mandres to build huge infrastructure and 300 km of galleries. A future no man’s land? Who can want to live near such a site? This landfill project, refocused today at BURE, concerned 25 sites in France and is the object of very strong mobilizations and oppositions … which are not ready to finish.”

The Alliance helped to build the successful campaign to stop the Jabiluka uranium mine in the Northern Territory, and more recently, proposed national nuclear waste dumps in South Australia and Muckaty in the NT. Currently, Aboriginal communities face a wave of uranium exploration, several proposed new uranium mines, and a proposed national nuclear waste dump.”

Wind-Works

“Following a trip to Denmark in 1980, I’ve stressed the theme that wind energy does indeed work, makes economic and environmental sense, and is here to stay. Even then Denmark was a model of how successful wind energy could become–when given the opportunity. In North America at the time, there were few wind turbines and only a few of those operated well. Most simply didn’t work. My slogan was as much a statement of what could be as it was a statement of fact. Today, wind turbines are commonplace throughout the world and “wind works”, once a bold statement, now elicits a “What? Of course it does. Everyone knows that.” And that’s the way it should be.”

Uranium: Wealth or Woe?

“Debates rage over whether energy generated by uranium induced nuclear fission is beneficial or harmful. The debate often settles into familiar bipartite arguments of nuclear power plants versus nuclear bombs. However, this article demonstrates that this approach is too narrow; the threats to land and livelihoods generated purely from the extraction process are substantial but unknown or ignored, as the Topnaar Nama people in Namibia are discovering.”

Three Mile Island Revisited

“This powerful documentary challenges the claims of the nuclear industry and government that no one died as a result of the core meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility in Pennsylvania. It utilizes the testimony of area residents and scientific findings to reveal that deaths, especially from cancer and birth defects in children, have been widespread since the 1979 accident. Indeed, it notes that Three Mile Island’s owner has been quietly settling numerous damage cases brought by persons seriously impacted by the accident. Winner of the Worldfest Silver Award, Houston International Film Festival. Winner of the Director’s Citation, Black Maria Video and Film Festival. Chosen for screening at the 1993 Earth Peace International Film Festival.

The future is renewable

“Switzerland has everything it takes to secure its long-term supply on the basis of predominantly domestic and renewable energy sources and energy efficiency: natural, economic and financial resources as well as technological know-how. In order for the energy transition to succeed, it needs a clear framework, including as far as the nuclear phase-out is concerned. Nuclear power plants pose an unnecessary and unacceptable threat. They pollute the environment at all pre and post stages and leave nuclear waste behind. In addition, the construction of new nuclear power plants will hinder the development of a secure power supply with renewable energies and prevent incentives for (electricity) energy efficiency. The members of the Alliance nuclear phase-out commit themselves to the common goal of stopping the production of atomic energy. They are making political efforts to avert the construction of new nuclear power plants in Switzerland. “

The Atom: A Love Affair

“Nearly everyone has an opinion about nuclear power but far fewer know its history and the complex social and political forces that have shaped it. Unlike so many other documentaries about nuclear power, ‘The Atom: A Love Affair’ does not try to argue one side of the debate or the other. Instead, the film takes viewers behind the sensational news headlines to tell the inside story of how we got here, over seven eventful decades in the United States, Britain, France & Germany. A tale of scientific passion and political intrigue all wrapped up in the packaging of a sentimental screen melodrama, it takes us on a tragicomic journey through the turbulent and often-forgotten history of nuclear energy, brought vividly to life by those who were actually there. Capturing both the tantalising promise and the repeated disappointments of this singular technology, the film reveals how the post-war, romantic fantasy of an atom-powered future developed into the stormy, on-off relationship still playing out today. Now, as a new 21st century landscape of smart, flexible and decentralised energy rapidly evolves around it, could it really be the end of the affair for the once mighty atom?”

Site of the collective “Areva will not make the law in Niger”

“For 40 years, the French company AREVA, the world leader in civilian nuclear power, derives nearly 40% of its uranium production from North Niger, a country still ranked today as one of the 3 poorest in the world. In 2007, Areva loses its monopoly and the Nigerian state receives license applications from North American, Australian, Asian and South African companies. Although Azelik, future large-scale exploitation, was granted to the Chinese via the Sino-U (CNUC) company, Areva has nevertheless recently obtained the authorization to exploit the huge Imouraren site with which Niger should become the 2nd largest producer worldwide…We call on the French government, the European Union and international bodies : -to put pressure on the Nigerian authorities to respect human rights standards, in particular non-derogable human rights. We urgently call on the French government, the Nigerian government, the European Union and international bodies : -to recognize the urgency of the humanitarian crisis related to mining operations. -to make every effort to help the victims of the conflict (displaced, refugees, detainees). -immediate action for a quick and equitable return to peace.”
