Wullowitz-Dolni Dvoriste border crossing on the Czech-Austrian border will be blocked by Austrian opponents of the Temelin nuclear power on Sunday, October 8.

The main goal of the protestors is to remind the Social Democratic Party (SPOe) of Alfred Gusenbauer, the winner of the recent Austrian parliamentary elections, its promises to raise the topic of Temelin in talks with the Czech side. They want persistent monitoring and observance of all safety measures in Temelin.

They insist that the previous government of Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel (Peoples Party, OeVP) disappointed them about the Temelin problem.

According to their statement, 90 per cent of the population of Upper Austria expects the new government to get actively involved in the matter.

"Gusenbauer assured us in the election campaign that he would push for the observance of international agreements as the Brussels Treaty from 2001 on the safety increase in Temelin," the Atomstopp group says in its statement.
