Nuclear power – the counterculture is growing again Posted by jan on Mar 13, 2011 in Culture, Current Events, History, People
Since a couple of months, in Stuttgart a demonstration against nuclear power has been planned for 12th March 2011. Due to the actual events in Japan the demonstration became even more important by coincodence. A chain of people was build from the nuclear power plant in Neckarwestheim to Stuttgart. 60.000 people were engaged and the chain was about 45 km long.
Finally in Stuttgart there were some performances and manifestations against nuclear power.
Some years ago, the government of Germany decided to exit from nuclear power as soon as possible. But then the government changed again and they decided to run the power plants for another couple of years.
I guess after the situation in Japan, nuclear power will not only be discussed in Germany…
What are your opinions about nuclear power and the situation we´re faced with?
Here is a little video about the demonstration in Stuttgart (including a part of a speech of Brigitte Dahlbender):
