Baltic Sea Info Tour/Malmö
Tour Stop in Malmö
Malmö is situated in the South of Sweden, only one hour by coach or train away from Copenhagen. In Sweden, there was a referendum in 1980 for a very long-term end of nuclear power. Since then, this was delayed further and recently the parliament has okayed the replacement of old reactors, therefore both old and new reactors will keep running. Formerly Sweden had some uranium activities which had been finished some time ago. Since the new run on uranium, several hundred new sites are explored for their suitability for uranium mining. North-east of Malmö, some 350 kilometers away, the Oskarshamn NPP is situated and some 200 kilometers north-west of Malmö the NPP Ringhals is located by Varberg. The closed NPP Barsebäck is situated only about 20 kilometers north of Malmö.
The Baltic Sea Info Tour stopped from August 3-5 in Malmö. After these three days of activities the participants of the infotour had two resting days in the region for recreation or joint the Climate Camp in Uppsala. Anyway, we provided a public information event, a public street action and a regional network gathering here.
