December 18, 2016 - Higher Regional Court rejects appeal - Unusually high judgment for anti-nuclear chaining action

In the summer of 2012, a chaining action and a climbing action blocked the railway line between Münster (Westphalia) and the uranium enrichment plant in Gronau. The OLG Hamm has now confirmed the unusually high penalties of 90 and 110 daily rates of the Münster district court for the chaining action.

While the proceedings because of the climbing action were discontinued after a short time, the two people who were chained at the time were convicted of "disrupting public operations" before the Steinfurt district court and on appeal before the Münster district court. The appeal filed against the judgment in December 2015 has now been rejected by the Hamm Higher Regional Court. The decision of the regional court, according to which the two chained people were sentenced to 90 and 110 daily rates of 15 euros each, i.e. 1350 euros and 1650 euros, respectively, is now final.

On November 19, 2016, the BUND NRW and the Nature and Environmental Protection Academy NRW held the seminar “Pebble bed reactors, thorium and transmutation: the last straws of the atomic lobby”, which was well attended by 35 participants. In this context, Horst Blume gave a lecture on the resistance against the THTR in Germany and South Africa, which we document here:

November 19, 2016 - Pebble bed reactors, thorium and transmutation: The last straws of the nuclear lobby

Resistance to the THTR in Germany and South Africa

BI Hamm is now over 40 years old and its history is rich in experiences and events. So the question arose as to which experiences I emphasize today and which I neglect.

In my lecture I will emphasize some local peculiarities, but also show how we have worked on international issues, especially South Africa, over the past 15 years.

Construction of the THTR began in 1971 when many of the founding members were too young to care about the subject. It was not until 1975 that some of us listened up when we heard from the farmers who were resisting a planned nuclear power plant in Wyhl without violence. At that time I was a member of the DFG / VK and we dealt with the topic of nuclear weapons and organized ourselves in a separate working group to prepare the foundation of a citizens' initiative against nuclear power plants ...

October 20, 2016 - Joint statement by '.aussendung' and 'Umweltinstitut München ev' on the billion dollar deal

1. General remarks

The polluter pays principle is one of the three fundamental principles of environmental law in Germany and Europe. It states that the costs of preventing and eliminating environmental damage caused by economic activities are to be charged to the polluter. The aim of this principle is to prevent individual social actors from gaining economic advantages by passing the costs and risks arising from their activities on to society. The implementation of this principle is also intended to ensure that economic sectors whose economic costs exceed the economic benefits to be achieved cannot prevail over other solutions that are better from a societal perspective.

Action alliance Münsterland against nuclear facilities
Federal Association of Citizens' Initiatives Environmental Protection (BBU)

October 13, 2016 - Anti-nuclear opponents disappointed by green election program:

- no concrete statements on the decommissioning of uranium enrichment Gronau
- no concrete statements on uranium waste storage in Gronau
- No concrete statements about the Ahaus nuclear waste interim storage facility
- No concrete statements about the stop of nuclear transport in NRW

The anti-nuclear power initiatives in the Münsterland as well as the Federal Association of Citizens' Initiatives Environmental Protection (BBU) are disappointed with the draft of the election program of the NRW Greens. It is true that there is a general call for the withdrawal from uranium enrichment in Gronau, but there are no concrete statements as to how and when this should be achieved. Neither the unanimous closure decision of the state environment ministers from June nor the offer of talks by Federal Environment Minister Hendricks (SPD) in July is mentioned. A planned shutdown date is also missing and there is not a word in the draft of the election manifesto for the planned opening of the new uranium waste hall in Gronau in 2017 - a new large nuclear waste storage facility for North Rhine-Westphalia, the storage of which is not limited in time ...

Press release by the citizens' initiative for environmental protection in Hamm

Even after 30 years:
May 18, 2016 - News about the THTR incident

Thirty years after Chernobyl and the incident in the thorium high-temperature reactor (THTR) Hamm-Uentrop, which became known a few days later on May 4, 1986, a contribution on the Wikipedia discussion page on THTR confirms the worst fears of the opponents of nuclear power plants.

What happened?

Only now did we discover Dr. Hermann Schollmeyer from March 1, 2015. Schollmeyer was the specialist commissioning manager of BBC AG Mannheim, responsible for the shut-off rods produced by this company, as well as for the five steam turbines including the measurement and control technology for the THTR in Hamm.

In the THTR, on May 4, 1986, Kugelbruch once again blocked reactor operation. What happened next is described by Schollmeyer on Wikipedia in section 34, control rods / absorber rods:

"The superfluous blowing out of the broken ball, the filter was already ordered (!), Into the 'Tschernobil cloud' was a decision of the then main operator, Dr. Daoud, which he carried out against every warning and tried to conceal due to a lack of specialist knowledge. "...

Everything has changed!

The Soviet Union has said goodbye, not only from the financing of the Chernobyl follow-up costs, consequently completely and definitively. The Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian death zones around Chernobyl became a really cool biosphere reserve with totally happy wolves and reactor No. 4 has become a hip selfie background for completely painless disaster tourism ...
