Polish Community Gives Up NPP Plans
The Polish border town Gryfino has given up its plans to build a nuclear power plant. "In view of the vehement protests in Germany it makes no sense to think about it anymore", mayor Henryk Pilat told the "Märkische Oderzeitung".
Especially the big demonstration of anti-nuclear activists in Berlin last weekend impressed him, Pilat continued. The local politician made clear that the town is most interested in the modernization of the old coal fired station "Dolna Odra". Some 2,200 employers are currently working for the power station.
