demand to the European Parliament to shut down Superphenix
(November 3, 1989) On 1 September the Superphenix reactor at Creys-Malville, France, which suffered severe damage in 1987, received a license to continue operation. The Superphenix is a prototype 1250 MW Fast Breeder requiring components so huge that they could not be tested to scale prior to going into operation. Superphenix is a joint European enterprise. Participants include France (51%), Italy (33%), West Germany (11.02%), Belgium (2.36%), Holland (2.36%) and Great Britain (0.26%). It is situated between Geneva and Lyon, not far from the Swiss and Italian border. Five million people live within a radius of 100 km. On pages 9 and 10 of this issue, we have reprinted a petition requesting the European Parliament to demand the shut down of the Superphenix. Please sign and circulate this petition and return it to the Association de Femmes Pour La Survie Information Sur Les Dangers Du Nucleaire (their address is on the petition). Time is short. It must be sent back before 30 November. For more information on the Superphenix, contact also: Contratom, Case Postale 107, CH-1227 Carouge, Switzerland.
