Bury me not
This is the new frontline of ecological activism.
Bure is a remote French village of 82 inhabitants. In the next 10 years, the most dangerous nuclear waste will start to be buried here, 500 meters underground, supposedly for hundreds of thousands of years.
Together, French and Europeans activists are trying to prevent the construction of this unique and massive deep geological storage facility. This reportage follows their struggle in a post-Fukushima era.
The village and its wide surroundings have been chosen by the ANDRA, the French national agency for radioactive waste management, to build half a kilometer underground a massive and unique deep geological storage facility. The facility, named CIGEO, is planned to be filled with waste over the next century and is the hidden legacy of a nearly all-nuclear policy. Despite all warnings, France is still the nation with the most important share of nuclear electricity, 76,3%, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
