No Nukes- China’s Latest NIMBY Protest

Residents in the southern city of Jiangmen took to the streets Friday to protest plans by China National Nuclear Corp. and China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group to build facilities that would process uranium. A Jiangmen government statement on July 3 (in Chinese) described plans for a one-stop, world-class nuclear fuel processing facility that would cost more than 30 billion yuan ($4.8 billion) and eventually emerge as an “Asian showcase for nuclear fuel processing and related equipment manufacturing.”

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
