1.  Join the campaign Bure365!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The campaign Bure365 was launched in June 2014 in order to oppose
"Cigéo", this highly radioactive waste deposit project supposed to be
built in the small village of Bure (East of France). Antinuclear
groups from France and all over Europe are invited to join this
campaign over and to organize as many actions as possible. All kinds
of solidarity actions are welcome: civil disobedience, actions in
public, direct actions, legal actions...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.  Ukraine: Updates on Khmelnitsky NPP new reactor construction plans
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Good news: Officials say that the Ukraine is no longer going to
cooperate with Russia in construction of new units at Khmelnitskiy
NPP.

Bad news: They are still considering options for construction of new
reactors, but with involvement of another partner. Moreover, in early
September a Ukrainian PM said the government should decide about the
possible site and partner till the end of the year. There are also
talks about partial (up to 40%) privatization of Energoatom, which is
completely new, because previously they were talking mostly about
corporation (first step to privatization). They think privatization
will help to involve private investments in projects. Another way of
fund involvement, they say, is an agreement of electricity export to
EU. Among possible technical partners so far they mentioned Czech
companies. But here are still big uncertainty and a lack of
information. Anyway, they say that the existing infrastructure at
Khmelnitskiy NPP site is not possible to be used.

3.  Photo Exhibition "Faces of Uranium" in Polná
----------------------------------------------------------------------
From 24 September to 31 October 2014 there is going to be installed a
photo exhibition "Faces of Uranium" of photographs by Václav Vašků in
the passageway of a bookstore "Kuba and Pařízek" in Husovo náměstí 44,
Polná. The photo exhibition runs concurrently with the processing of a
feasibility study for opening Brzkov and Horní Věžnice uranium
deposits (the government commissioned the state enterprise DIAMO to
finish this study by 30 September 2014). The opening of the photo
exhibition will take place on Wednesday 24 September at 3pm and Václav
Vašků is going to be present, too.

YY. About NukeNews
----------------------------------------------------------------------
NukeNews is a multilingual newsletter of the Nuclear Heritage Network
to reflect the activities, topics and struggles of anti-nuclear
activists. The articles are written and translated by activists,
additionally to their usual anti-nuclear activities. No- one is paid
for that work, as we want to provide resources like this information
system to the anti-nuclear struggle as independent as possible.

Your contributions to the next issue of the NukeNews are welcome.
Send them via email to "news AT NukeNews.nuclear-heritage.net". It
should be brief information in English of not more than one paragraph,
including a concise headline and an optional link to a webpage
providing more information. Deadline for the 15th issue of the
NukeNews will be 14th of September, 2014.
