NukeNews is a multilingual system of newsletters made by anti-nuclear activists from several countries to inform other activists and the interested public about atomic policies and developments in their regions, about anti-nuclear campaigns and actions, and to spread the word about topics they are working on. Started in June 2011, the email newsletters are released every three months. The NukeNews are a join in project - there is no professional staff of editors, but engaged anti-nuclear people running it. The basic idea is to inform people in other countries about the developments and activities in your country or region. Thus, it is a tool for networking and for information exchange.
As long emails don't draw reader's attention, we try to keep the individual messages very short. If possible we add links to websites providing more information on the topic of the news. The Nuclear Heritage Network is an informal network of activists - due to their commitment to the cause, most of them are lacking time for more tasks. As well the NukeNews are created by volunteers informing about their activities, but actually focussing on directly fighting the atomic threat. Thus, the concept of this newsletter system suits well as short messages make it also easier to be written even by activists with lack of time due to their projects, and it will be easier for people to translate them into several languages.
The contents of the NukeNews include projects, campaigns, actions and other activities of people involved to the Nuclear Heritage Network, as well as other anti-nuclear news people feel to be important to be released to the interested audience of the NukeNews. Basically, the NukeNews are supposed to be released every three months. This is a good time frame to keep people up to date about anti-nuclear developments in other countries, and to be practicable to be provided even by very occupied activists. The NukeNews are a good chance for anti-nuclear activists to spread the word about your activities, projects and events. A number of people is already subscribed to the different language versions of the newsletter.
The sixteenth issue of the NukeNews has been released on December 22, 2014 - you find the different language versions on our website: Croatian | Czech | English | Finnish | French | German | Polish | Russian | Slovenian.
The next issue (no. 17) will be released on March 9, 2015. Articles to be distributed by the newsletters are required by March 1, 2015. If you want to contribute messages to the NukeNews, please contact us at newsletter AT nuclear-heritage DOT net to join the newsletter working group.
With NukeNews #13 we have frozen the Lithuanian edition of the email newsletter. This is due to the lack of Lithuanian translation support for the NukeNews. The last times not any of the messages could be translated into Lithuanian, and it doesn't make sense to send out the Lithuanian edition of the newsletter only in English. For now, Lithuanian translations - if we receive those - will be published only on this webpage until we find some Lithuanian volunteers to care for the translations continuously. In the meantime the Lithuanian newsletter won't be sent out any more. If you can help, please contact us

Support the NukeNews
Although the NukeNews already supply you with helpful information, we still lack volunteers for this anti-nuclear information service. Please support the project by helping gathering news for the NukeNews, translating or compiling the messages for the newsletter. If you could help, it would be wonderful!
- Even if a digital newsletter is not as expensive as any other printed material, it produces some costs. Your donations are welcome! We can issue you a confirmation of your charitable donation for your tax declaration, if you send us your postal address with the transfer in the "purpose" field.
- The NukeNews represent topics and activities of activists with the Nuclear Heritage Network. Thus, you are invited to provide brief information on atomic struggles in your region. These pieces of text need to be prepared in English and should not exceed one paragraph - a short summary of the issue in a brief form. Contact us if you want to contribute articles to the NukeNews.
- And we are also looking for translation support - from English into Croatian, Czech, French, Finnish, German, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian and Slovenian. There are also other interpeters working with the NukeNews, thus it shouldn't be a too big task, and it should not be your responsibility alone to translate all the messages for the newsletter. If you want to join us, send an email.
- We need people willing to take over responsibility for a language version of the NukeNews (Czech, English, Finnish, French, German, Polish, Russian, Slovenian as of today). Meaning to compile the messages in the relevant language and to release the newsletter to the subscribers. Please volunteer by email, if you can help!
- New language versions of the NukeNews would be great! To establish additional NukeNews newsletter versions, it is necessary to have a robust staff of people ensuring that the translations will be made on time, and that the final version of the newsletter will be finished before the date of the release. Only one person is probably not enough to create a new language version of the NukeNews, but if you know some friends or colleagues to help with this issue, it could succeed. However, contact us if you are interested in establishing an additional version of the NukeNews.
Technical information - how it works
We are collecting short (!) messages in English that people think should be published in the NukeNews using a special mailing list (translation-nukenews). Those persons who want to help to translate the news into one of the languages mentioned above have to be subscribed to the translation mailing list. They send their translations back to the listserve.
Also the coordinators of the specific language versions of the NukeNews have to be subscribed to the translation-nukenews mailing list to receive the messages in the language version they are responsible for. Those messages that have been translated by the deadline for releasing the NukeNews will be collected by the coordinators forming the newsletter. The finished language version of the newsletter will be sent by them via the specific NukeNews (ces-nukenews, eng-nukenews, fin-nukenews, fra-nukenews, ger-nukenews, ltu-nukenews, rus-nukenews, slo-nukenews) to the subscribers of the newsletters.
