Ac­tivists to ap­peal nu­clear plant

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - BUSINESS -

Green­peace Africa and other NGOs in­tend to ap­peal against SA’s de­ci­sion to grant an en­vi­ron­men­tal per­mit for a new 4 000 megawatt nu­clear plant.

Last month the de­part­ment of en­vi­ron­men­tal af­fairs granted Eskom au­tho­ri­sa­tion to build the plant at Duyne­fontein, close to Koe­berg.

“It will in­fringe the en­vi­ron­men­tal rights of both present and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions,” Penny-Jane Cooke of Green­peace Africa stated.
