----------------------------------------------------------------------
1.  Ecodefense: new court hearings
----------------------------------------------------------------------
On December 5, 2014 another court hearing will take place in
Ecodefense's complaint against a 6,000 EUR fine based on the „foreign
agent“ law. Ecodefense argues the fine is illegal as the organization
is no foreign agent. However, obviously the government has another
opinion, and there is hardly a chance for Ecodefense to change that.
Thus, Ecodefense assumes the fine to come into force. For this case
the organization announced to refuse to pay the money. Representatives
of the environmental group emanates the Ministry of Justice to make
this the reason for closing the organization down.

Additionally, the Ministry of Justice already on November 19, 2014
started another case against Ecodefense as they refused to report
their activities under the „foreign agent“ law. Probably Ecodefense
will be faced to an additional fine of 7,000-8,000 EUR. The dates of
the trial haven‘t been released yet, but it could happen at any point
in December. It is important to remind that Ecodefense has been
particularly prosecuted because of their successful campaign against
the proposed Baltic NPP near Kaliningrad. For many years Ecodefense
has been an important cooperation partner of the German anti-nuclear
movement in Russia – together for instance the transports of uranium
waste from the Gronau uranium enrichment facility to Russia had been
stopped.

2.  Czech government wants to mine uranium in Brzkov from 2022
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Since June 2014, the association "Our Future Without Uranium" (NBBU)
of Brzkov is trying to make the Regional Authority of the Vysočina
Region and ministerial officials understand the absurdity of opening
uranium mine in Brzkov and to persuade them to take appropriate
measures to prevent mining. According to the latest information, the
Czech government still wants to mine and the Regional Authority
continues to support this intention, too. On the other hand, the
opposition councillors support dialogue with NBBU and local
municipalities.

Members of NBBU have had a busy spring, summer and autumn. At first -
they founded their association at the beginning of June. By this they
have taken a responsible role of defender of their rights and their
home. Subsequently they held a first debate (co-organized by Calla),
where they introduced their petition "NO URANIUM MINING IN THE
VYSOČINA REGION" which was addressed to the Prime Minister Sobotka
(1,700 signatories by mid-October), they signed the "Memorandum for a
Future Without Uranium" together with four local authorities,
organized the "March Against Uranium" in September and the photo
exhibition "Faces of Uranium" (in cooperation with Calla) ongoing
till the end of October. During the October excursion in the chemical
treatment plant in Dolní Rožínka they established a direct contact
with the leadership of the division GEAM of DIAMO, state enterprise,
which was authorized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MPO) to
produce study on the feasibility of opening uranium deposit in
Brzkov-Horní Věžnice.
