Greenpeace Boycotts French Power Debate Laying Out Energy Policy

Greenpeace will boycott French plans for a six-month national debate on nuclear power intended to lay the groundwork for future energy policy and legislation in June.

The government has shown “extremely negative signals on the environment,” Greenpeace, which campaigns against atomic generation in France, said in a statement. It cited plans to build an airport near Nantes and work being carried out on the Fessenheim nuclear reactor, which has been slated to close.
