Proposal to revive RP's nuclear plant opposed

BATAAN, Philippines – Residents in Bataan province in Luzon opposed to the revival of the country’s nuclear plant held a protest outside the Saint Joseph Parish in the capital town of Balanga.

Members of the Network Opposed "NO" to Bataan Nuclear Power Plant Revival and the Ecowaste Coalition asked members of the House of Representatives not to support House Bill 4631 which calls for the revival of the mothballed nuclear plant.

Environmental and Civil society groups question the safety of nuclear power plants and instead call for the full implementation of the recently passed Renewable Energy Bill. (AKP Photo / Gigie Cruz)
