  • Description

    In the United States, the controversial decision to build a nuclear power plant at Seabrook in New Hampshire has led to protest demonstrations for a second time. Braving heat, flies and piles of rubbish, thousands of demonstrators crowded onto an 18 acre former town-dump beside the Seabrook nuclear power plant where construction has already begun. The demonstrators were separated from the construction area by a chain link fence patrolled by about 250 policemen. Last year in a similar demonstration there were many arrests, but an agreement between protesters and authorities promised there would be no mass arrests if demonstrators stayed in the designated area and left by Monday (26 June). A tent city was erected with a stage for a weekend of concerts and speeches against nuclear energy.
