Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Dutch protest in Aachen against nuclear power plants and Macron
About 1500 protesters, some of them Dutch, demonstrated this afternoon in Aachen [in Germany] against the French president Macron and the Doel and Tihange nuclear power stations in Belgium.
The protest was against the French support for the nuclear power plants. The Doel and Tihange power plants, both close to the Dutch border, are owned by the French state for more than 25%.
Especially the Tihange 2 and Doel 3 power stations regularly have problems with cracks and other problems. The campaigners called on the president to shut down the power stations for ever.
President Macron was in Aachen to receive the Charlemagne prize. This annual award is for people and organizations that are committed to European unity.
During the award ceremony, the protesters made noise and shouted slogans.
