Didier & Paulette Anger, France
2018 In Salzburg
Didier and Paulette Anger were awarded for their life's work against nuclear power. Since the 1970s, they have experienced the various facets on their doorstep - and have been committed to opposing it: The reprocessing plant at La Hague went into operation in 1966, spent fuel rods from Germany arrived at the Valognes station in 1966, reprocessed nuclear waste and MOX fuel elements were shipped to Japan at the port of Cherbourg, and French nuclear submarines entered and left the port. Finally, in Flamanville, the first reactor block went on line in 1985. The third has been under construction since 2005.
