Women of Plogoff


Product Information


'This book recounts the words of the women of Plogoff gathered by two female anti-nuclear activists, during meetings in April, May, and June, 1980 and transcribed as they were spoken. Thirty years ago, from January 31 to March 14, 1980, the population of Plogoff and the inhabitants of the Cape revolted against the opening of a "public utilities inquiry" on the construction of a 1300 megawatt, 4-unit nuclear power station on the Point du Raz and the imposed police occupation. 
With the help of a change in political majority, the project would eventually be abandoned. 
Chernobyl, fallout from nuclear weapons tests, uranium mining, and the imperfect handling of waste show us that the dangers of nuclear power are incontestable, despite the allegations of the electro-nuclear lobby that present the nuclear industry to us as an energy of the future: "sustainable" and almost "green".'
LBC Books, 2010.
