Greenpeace activists demonstrate against SA’s plan on nuclear energy

Environmental organisation, Greenpeace, has demanded that the government halts all discussions aimed at expanding nuclear power production in South Africa.

The organisation states that its activists blockaded the premises of the Industrial Development Corporation where the conference on 'Nuclear Power's Future for Africa' was underway.

The organisation’s anti-nuclear campaigner, Ferrial Adam, has been quoted as saying that, "If you have a combination and a proper mix of energy with solar and wind, you don't have to get stuck on having a large base load."
