The South Durban community Environmental Alliance (SDCEA) would like to invite you to a nuclear meeting on the 29th September 2017 at the TLC Community Hall at 2pm. The purpose of this meeting is to educate, empower and mobilise community members on the proposed nuclear energy build as contemplated by the government and Eskom. Citizens need to understand that they have the power to refuse the nuclear energy fleet proposed to be built in South Africa. Sustainable energy should be the main focus in this country not unsustainable and dangerous energy.
SDCEA together with other organisations has been hosting meeting and bringing international anti-nuclear speakers as far back as 2015. SDCEA recently hosted two anti-nuclear activists from Russia and the U.S. They shared their experience fighting nuclear power and talk about the situation in their countries and across the world. Various countries have been phasing out nuclear energy. These activists shared why people are resisting nuclear power and how they manage to successfully stop the construction of nuclear reactors. This too is possible for South Africa. We have the power to say No to nuclear energy.
Recently Earthlife Africa Johannesburg and SAFCEI challenged the government’s nuclear deals with Russia, the U.S. and South Korea. In April 2017 judgement was delivered in the High Court and these deals were set aside and declared unlawful and unconstitutional. This was a major victory for the anti-nuclear campaign in South Africa.
We kindly ask you to join us as we discuss the energy future of South Africa.
