AS THE time rapidly draws near when we will lose De Klerk and other SA nobel laureates, will the man who crossed the Rubicon and dismantled South Africa’s nuclear weapons programme renounce atomic power in toto? Will FW finally kick his 50 cigeratte a day, Koeberg habit?
Perhaps readers will remember that while nuclear war is a probablity in the Middle East, we need to be doing everything in our capacity to avoid the proliferation of weapons on the sub-continent, putting an end, once and for all, to costly atomic energy programmes such as the PBMR and shutting down Koeberg along with its money-grabbing quasi-national developers from the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
Perhaps De Klerk and his party, the ANC will put their money and their conscience where their mouthes are and set up a foundation against nuclear proliferation/atomic energy and finally end the so-called “peaceful use of atomic power”? Or would a donation to the cancer foundation be a lot more meaningfull than exposing uranium miners and PBMR workers to one X-Ray per day for the next fifty years?
FORWARD TO A NON-RACIST, NON-SEXIST, NUCLEAR-FREE CONTINENT
NO SAFE DOSE OF RADIATION — SAY NO TO ATOMIC WAR
