Why keep exploring dangerous Gorleben?

Bild Geologists will explain the condition of the Gorleben salt deposit being explored as a nuclear waste dump at a media conference and podium discussion next Tuesday 6 September. The civic action group Bürgerinitiative Umweltschutz Lüchow Dannenberg (BI) is hosting the event at the Dannenberg pub “Alte Post”. There will be a media conference with podium members at 7.15 p.m. and discussion is set to start at 8 p.m..

Speakers will include the geologists Detlef Appel and Jürgen Kreusch, members of a working group appointed by the government to look for a final waste dump. They will summarise the science around the exploratory mine that has been driven into a salt deposit at Gorleben.

“Especially now, shortly before the federal election, it is important to spread information against the regression of the CDU [Conservatives] and FDP [Liberals] into a nuclear policy of the 70’s,” says the group spokesman, Francis Althoff.

The CDU and FDP have been saying in their campaigning that the exploration of the Gorleben mine, stopped years ago over safety concerns, should be resumed with view to making it a final waste dump.

“The scientific criteria warning against this for more than two decades can be heard on Tuesday, 6 September at 8 p.m. in the hall of the Alte Post in Dannenberg,” says Althoff’s release.
