The environmental organization urgewald and the Association of Critical Shareholders urge the RWE AG in tomorrow's general meeting in Essen, say goodbye to their irresponsible nuclear policy to withdraw the case against the nuclear moratorium and to dismiss the CEO Grossman.
While emerging between the political parties, a compromise for a faster phase-out of nuclear energy, RWE fighting doggedly for nuclear energy. "The disaster in Fukushima to the world the uncontrollability of nuclear energy is a reminder," said Heffa Schücking, managing director of urgewald. "Chief executive Juergen Grossmann added to last year's often said Japan shows that one can build safe nuclear power plant in earthquake-prone regions. Fortunately, making protests and lack of funding to build a line by Mr. Grossman's adventurous plans, nuclear power plant in earthquake-prone locations in Bulgaria and Romania. "

"As the only energy company RWE has brought against the temporary shutdown of a nuclear power plant is inserted and is thus socially marginalized," says Markus Dufner, Director of the Federation of Critical shareholders.

Abroad, RWE will build new nuclear power still works, we plan in the UK, where RWE and E. ON jointly six nuclear reactors at Oldbury and Wylfa. Reg Illingworth of the citizens' initiative in Oldbury is flown in for the meeting to protest against it: "RWE refuses to see the reality of the residual risk in the eye. That it is within 32 years came in three nuclear power plants to nuclear fusion, shows that the basic assumptions of the nuclear industry in the frequency of such events are false and irresponsible. The citizens of Oldbury and Wylfa will not suffer.

"The current group policy does not do this. Therefore, RWE follow the theme of its annual report and plain talk . And indeed with Juergen Grossmann: He must either change its nuclear course or find a new job because he RWE more harm than good, "Ford Dufner and Schücking.
