SOFIA, April 22 (Itar-Tass) —— About 2,000 people protested in Pleven, Bulgaria, on Sunday against the national government’s decision not to build the Belene Nuclear Power Plant. The action was organized by the committee called, “I do not discard the Belene NPP project, and you?”
“The majority of political parties in Pleven support our initiative. Most of citizens disagree with the decision not to build the Belene NPP, but the government is trying to avoid a referendum,” committee chairman Krasimir Todorov said.
Pleven protesters were joined by people from nearby towns. The initiative gained support of 10,500 persons on the Facebook.
The Bulgarian government decided in late March that it would not build the nuclear power plant of over 2,000 megawatt. The Belene NPP tender was held in 2005, and Russia’s Atomstroyexport was the winner.
