AREVA filed a complaint against the South-East Antinuclear Coordination.
We will not allow ourselves to be gagged !
The South-East Antinuclear Coordination has just been informed last Tuesday January 6, 2015 that a defamation suit has been filed by Areva against them for a report that they published on their website, denouncing the nuclear lobby’s penetration to the elected officials.
This attack on freedom of speech is taking place while the nuclear health crime continues here in the Rhône Valley of France, and in Fukushima, Japan.
By such attempt to gag opposition, the nuclear giant intends to silence dissent at a time when the Areva group is in financial and industrial decay (having lost 52% of its stock market value, failure of its EPR in Finland, risky investments, its Mox sales declining, especially in Japan, in question regarding its foreign budget financing etc), at a time when incidents are increasing at its ageing nuclear facilities in France and that thousands of Japanese children and adults will die slowly in Fukushima, Japan, and elsewhere as in Niger.
The South-East Antinuclear Coordination, apart from any political party, bringing together concerned citizens acting for the immediate and unconditional cessation of the nuclear crime for public health reasons, denounces :
The fanatical ideological war that proponents of atomic destruction are waging against free thought and against the people, the arrogance and the imperialism of the nuclear lobby and of its ruling caste,
The populations health and life damages and the contamination of areas by radioactive releases in the air and in the water from each of the 125 civil nuclear facilities plus the military nuclear facilities on secret military bases located throughout the french territory. Damages deliberatedly done, and repeated daily, such as the manufacturing of the radioactive «depleted uranium» by Areva, used in weapons of war,
Neo-colonialist exploitation of Niger’s workers and resources, as well as the radioactive contamination of the territories and of the Tuareg people and other people life in this country,
The infiltation of the State institutions, and of the elected assemblies by a private interests group and their ideological relay to impose a dominant order and a state of nuclear terror on the country and the plane.
The South-East Antinuclear Coordination calls to mind that there is no harmless dose of artificial radiation.
The South-East Antinuclear Coordination calls for solidarity :
