[Machine Translation] Swimming caps on the head and installed in cardboard pools symbolizing the “fragility of spent fuel storage pools”, Greenpeace activists organized actions in about twenty cities Saturday to point the finger at the safety of nuclear power plants. “Greenpeace is calling for EDF to act and protect these pools with containment enclosures, as is the norm for new reactors,” said AFP Chris Schneider, an NGO activist in Paris. “They are next to the reactor and receive the fuel and they can be targeted by acts of malice”, added another activist, Jacques Delor, in Bordeaux, demanding their “bunkerization”. These actions took place in about twenty cities, including Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Lille, Rennes and Strasbourg, each carried out by a dozen activists. Yellow swimming caps marked with the symbol of radioactivity and pool fries in hand, some were installed in false cardboard basins cracked on which was written “Swimming pool cardboard = nuclear accident” and “EDF, the love of risk”.
