On 17.11.2015, just before 8 AM a group of anti-nuclear activists sneaked inside the Fennovoimas’s fenced construction site at the Hanhikivi cape in Pyhäjoki. Two excavators were blocked by climbing on top of them. The second blockade also halted the explosion works next to the machine.
Fennovoima is destroying the Hanhikivi cape’s nature at a fast pace eventhough they still don’t have the building permit for the actual power plant, the security clearance from STUK isn’t ready and the nuclear waste deposit plans are not ready either.
Let’s stop the destruction of nature and capitalism everywhere.
