(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Septembre - Nuclear: Antinuclear redoubled energy (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 18 Sep 2016 19:08:12 +0300


The nuclear industry is struggling globally since Fukushima. In France, the mining of uranium at its disposal through plant construction, updating and control, everything is open to criticism. And the challenge is building momentum. ---- The different actors in the French nuclear industry through a bad period. Areva is indeed at the heart of the storm with his trial on the incomprehensible awarding of a depleted uranium deposit, but more recently with revelations about the defects in the construction and validation of 128 pieces of business in reactors La France. ---- The Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN), to monitor the die, is compromised by asking relationships based on trust with key players, Areva and EDF, which had rigged the old reports.

A project to 100 billion to sustain plants

EDF floundering on its side with its new EPR reactors in Finland and France (Flamanville), and is on the verge of bankruptcy. Despite these failures, the company continues its mad race by announcing the production of two new EPR England project that cost him the resignation of two company directors. In the interest of sustainability of its forty park sixty years, EDF has launched the "refit". A project of 100 billion euros very dangerous in its implementation, as evidenced by the accident at the plant Paluel where a steam generator fell during replacement. The piece weighing some 450 tons fell a few meters of the fuel storage pool, and cracked the slab. And finally, landfill Bure is the culmination of the failure of the industry, a project to distract waste, hide them, all in the greatest illegality.

Finally, the headlong rush nuclear continues only by reasons of state. In the draft green growth, nuclear power emits little carbon and thus become clean energy! Militarily, deterrence is still an ever-present concept of homeland defense. Economically, the country is a leader in this industry and can not afford to give up despite the failure of the model.

For example of the bad faith of the State, the Fessenheim plant, to be closed during the tenure of Holland, will be that from the time the EPR open. So no intention of reducing the share of nuclear in the energy, especially as the old plant has a defective parts of Areva, a steam generator. During this time EDF pushes for to upgrade and extend its life for sixty years. Project expected to cost billions, not including the threat of major refit. In light of this information the collective Stop Fessenheim pushing for reactor No. 2, which is currently closed for refueling, never reopened.

The dispute also affects the construction of the EPR. The endless construction site is dotted with defects such as concrete cast of evil containments or the reactor lid that is substandard. Add to this the illegal working conditions that were revealed for 450 workers who live in unsanitary camp, and timetables which exceed the statutory working time. In all, the site will cost four times more than originally planned, and its completion is uncertain. The PRT also the problem of being a very powerful reactor, its production will be directed towards international sales.

As a sign of surrender to the enormity of waste, the state is trying to build the well Bure to bury all this at 500 meters deep, beautiful funeral for pollution that will last tens of thousands of years. ANDRA (National Agency for Radioactive Waste Management), which manages the project has almost unlimited means to corrupt politicians and the public, after twenty years the project is now entering its final phase. Relying on a low capacity for mobilization at the local level (seven inhabitants per km2), Andra was imposed without taking basic precautions such as building permits. No more than it is moved by the challenge against the chosen site. As the rebellion shows even more scathing she became national.

Occupation and zadification

The fight is also rooted in the territory, the wood Lejuc site is to host the well is now considered a "common" for the benefit of people who share the farmers, residents, naturalists joined the resistance antinuclear. The occupation of wood by activists followed by deportation, then an attempted reoccupation against militias Andra lays the foundation for a very hard conflict. At the time this article is written, the local high court to suspended further work on site. The 6 hectares of forest that have been cleared and the kilometer concrete wall that was built should become legal in six months. Despite the court decision, Andra continues work.

The galaxy of associations that mobilize against nuclear basically through a technical argument on the technological risk, or a local populations refusal affected by the projects. The state's argument holds water through the use of financial resources and strength. From a global perspective, the prospect of a better future is largely undermined by the promise of the state of green growth that would allow the capital to continue its course by recycling his speech.

It is therefore necessary that a libertarian discourse and action developed through these struggles. The use of alternative energy or lack of use can be achieved through control of the affected populations who produce in accordance with their needs, and not in a logic of accumulation and consumption. Thus, unions are beginning to doubt the feasibility of an EPR or security might be willing to say that nuclear power is not a solution. In another approach, where unions are absent, it is the local struggle that prevail, as in Bure. Zadification the site must be aided by all available forces, it will be settlement activity will determine the currents of the struggle and the nature of the dispute.

Come to the Flamanville 1 and 2 October as Bure during the coming years, the nuclear industry is fragile and strong action will be decisive!
