Description:  “NGOs, CBOs and individuals throughout South Africans have formed a broadbased national coalition to oppose the expansion of the nuclear industry and to demand a commitment to public participation in energy planning. “Not just Cabinet alone, but all sectors together should decide on energy policy in South Africa,” said the statement of the newly-formed Coalition Against Nuclear Energy (CANE) a week after the South African Government released its draft Nuclear Energy Strategy Policy. CANE has been formed as an umbrella group comprising community organisations, residents’ associations, NGOs, academics, professionals, unionists, environmentalists and ordinary citizens now grappling with the spectre of nuclear developments in their back yards. They represent a groundswell of ordinary people who want government to act democratically in seeking alternative energy crisis and climate change solutions.”
