The issues

Reactor No 4 at Chernobyl in Ukraine blasted on April 26th 1986, 22 years prior. That day, one of the greatest innovative and mechanical fiascos the world has ever known started. Chernobyl continues asserting casualties these days : its irreversible and disastrous effect on wellbeing (tumors, various organ disappointments, mutations...) will influence eras to come.

These days, atomic organizations, upheld by organizations and government officials, say that atomic force is crucial for battling environmental change and guaranteeing monetary development. They likewise assert that every one of the issues connected with atomic force have been settled. Be that as it may, the fact of the matter is that atomic force is unsafe, costly, filthy and not accommodating, and connected with various issues, for example,

  • the impossibilities of changeless stockpiling of atomic waste (DANGEROUS),
  • the money related and specialized issues of building atomic influence plants EXPENSIVE),
  • the effects of uranium mining (POLLUTING),
  • the various and genuine atomic mishaps have occurred as of late (NOT SAFE - ESPECIALLY IN TURKEY WHICH IS AN EARTHQUAKE-PRONE REGION),
  • the commitment to, as opposed to alleviation of, environmental change (NOT HELPFUL),
  • the risks of multiplication (ALSO RELATED TO PRODUCTION [AND USE] OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS).


Ecotopia is occurring near the city of Sinop, one of the three arranged areas for the development of atomic force plants in Turkey. The aims of the Turkish government to build the dependence on atomic force is an impression of the worldwide pattern – expanding the quantity of atomic force plants in Europe and around the globe. For instance, the EU continues putting resources into atomic force (despite the fact that 634.686 Europeans and more than 780 NGOs have marked an appeal against improvements of atomic force in Europe). Truth be told, from the EU spending plans for the following five years – more cash will be spent on atomic force than on renewable vitality and vitality effectiveness (HOW STUPID IS THAT??).

Beside the counter warmonger development looking for neutralization of the Turkish society, the grass-roots hostile to atomic development is a standout amongst the most vital and most fascinating in Turkey. The two developments have much in like manner. The problematics of Turkish atomic arrangements goes past the squeezing vitality issues and natural concerns. The danger of atomic calamity is enlarged in the setting of political shakiness and clashes in Turkey and the entire of Middle East.

Amid Ecotopia we might want to bolster nearby activists in Sinop who, for a considerable length of time, have been contradicting the arrangement to build an atomic force plant simply outside the city. Right now, the resistance is diminishing because of the absence of advancement options for the territory, and the development of the atomic force plant is liable to begin one year from now. We are supporting the nearby hostile to nuke activists in light of the fact that we trust that atomic force is not an answer for the vitality emergency. The vitality inadequacy ought to be explained by diminishing vitality utilization, enhancing vitality productivity and advancing low-affect vitality creation. We likewise trust that the development of atomic force plant won't produce monetary development or thriving in the zone as it is exceptionally unsafe, hazardous and costly. The encompassing region of Sinop, is not just lovely, it has an awesome potential for option advancement, for example, natural agribusiness, manageable vitality creation, low-affect tourism, and so forth.

The development of the atomic force plant has not began yet - and gigantic activities are expected to guarantee that the arrangement is Cancel
