The Watchers are inviting you to sign a petition to "STOP Turkey Government's plan to start its first Nuclear Plant".
From the petition article...
Japan s Fukushima Daiichi power plant s radiation is still very alarming not only for the Japanese but for the Entire World. Japanese Prime Minister, Naoto Kan declares that Japan is on High Alert. Germany to China are suspending and rethinking their own nuclear-energy plans but Turkey s officials say their 50-year quest to build the country s first nuclear power plant is still moving full steam ahead.
Prime Turkish Minister told reporters ahead of a trip to Russia that two Russian firms have been chosen by the Turkish government to build a power plant in the Mediterranean town of Akkuyu, in Mersin province. Turkey is also in talks with Japan s Tokyo Electric Power Co and Toshiba, which built several of Fukushima s reactors, about constructing a second plant in the Black Sea town of Sinop.
A major quake in the Marmara region near Istanbul in 1999 killed nearly 17,000 people, and experts say Istanbul and other cities remain woefully unprepared for the next big tremor.
The Akkuyu site is less than 30 kilometers from a fault line.
It is a mistake to go nuclear after what has happened in Japan. Turkish Energy Minister says that Turkey will use the third-generation technology that will make his plant safer than the first technology. No matter what they say they should not build a nuclear plant in a highly seismic area.
