Boycott Vattenfall in Germany?

The press release (in German) says:

"Don't buy electricity from Vattenfall"

Anti-nuclear activists announce resistance to the re-commissioning of Krümmel and Brunsbüttel

Regarding the plans of Vattenfall to re-commission the ailing nuclear power plants of Krümmel and Brunsbüttel, Jochen Stay, spokesperson of the anti-nuclear organisation .ausgestrahlt, declares:

"I can only warn Vattenfall from re-commissioning Krümmel and Brunsbüttel. Nobody in northern Germany would understand that, and the last three years, during which these stations have been shut down, show,
that the electricity of these stations is not needed.

Now Vattenfall once again wants to profit from these dangerous plants, at the expense of the general public. We will organise resistance against this. The first step will be that we will call on the clients of Vattenfall to look for a different supplier for their electricity.“

Already in April 120,000 people demonstrated with a 120km human chain for the permanent shut down of Krümmel and Brunsbüttel.

Vattenfall is a large Swedish electricity company with nuclear power plants in Sweden and Germany. See at
