A report after 2 months of exhibitions for a nuclear free world, starting in Bruxelles, January 11. by Ann Vikkelso
The first 6 weeks in France and England were hard - but also had their good moments. Our last days in Belgium were sunny and very successful. The exhibition has already visited more than 20 towns. And the Walk Across Europe for a Nuclear-Free World has stepped through the first 1500 km on the way to Moscow. We will continue through Germany, the Czech Rep., Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, and Byelorussia, ending in Russia in October.
France - A Nuclear State
In France, we had a lot of success with school classes visiting the exhibition, and often for the first time realising that there are other possibilities than nuclear power - EdF (Electricity de France) has huge information (promotion) activities, also in the schools. At market places, it was hard to catch people's attention. The Walk had success with their activities against nuclear weapons in France.
England and Belgium - Waking Up In England and Belgium, we have had a more positive response from the general public. Many people were interested. Solar energy is especially popular. Several city councils also are starting to move. For example, in Reading, the city council has made a local Agenda 21 plan, and runs an information campaign on energy saving. In Belgium, we participated in national demonstrations around nuclear power plants. Many new people are getting involved in the anti-nuclear struggle at the moment, because new waste sites are being planned.
