(ANC - Anti-Nuclear Front) made an action against the nuclear plans in Anatolia
The next day (Feb. 18)
ANC made an action to declare that we won’t permit the nuclear attempts of the
government and capitalists. Shouting the slogans “No Nuclear”, “Imagination to
Action Against Nuclear”, “Stubbornness Against Nuclear, Long Live Life!”, ANC
activists marched to
ANC activists read a declaration briefly telling: The nuclear power plants are ‘time A-bombs’, and we won’t let you (the power) to put a time A-bomb in the heart of the land we live on. You (the policy makers) are averagely between 50-70 years old, so you won’t be those who will be affected from a potential “accident” in the plants. So the nuclear plants are bombs made to kill the youth and children of today, even the ones who have not been born yet. The nuclear power plants will bring more poverty to the poor, and money to the rich. Nuclear power plants will provide the energy for the global usurpers to attack us and our brothers and sisters in the near geography. We will struggle against the nuclear greed of government and capitalism everywhere and always. We are against nuclear, we are against nuclear weapons and war, against the work and bread coming from the nuclear, even against the “light” coming from it! We prevented it in 1999 and if we want we can stop again. We are the front of the unborn children, we are the front of freedom against the usurpers of life, we are Anti-Nuclear Front. And we declare: we will never ever let you build them!
ANC activists went on shouting slogans “Nuclear Future Will Be Prevented”, “We Can Stop If We Want”, “If Not Now Then When, If Not Us Then Who” and the ones written above.

Justice and Development Party (AKP) government hand-in-hand with mainstream media is trying to manufacture consent, for especially the northern part of Anatolia (Black Sea region) had been deeply effected from Chernobyl in 1986 (cancer incidents rise after 20 years, and there is one cancer incident almost in every home in the region) and people generally is normally afraid of nuclear energy.
In 1998 and 1999, government had made cuts in electricity to convince people that they needed nuclear power plants. Now they are preparing again to use the same methods. Everyday there are articles in the mainstream media about the “energy need” and it’d be better to be provided from nuclear power plants.
Of course, there is
