Kaiserstuhl protest against nuclear power in Germany

Kaiserstuhl protest against nuclear power in Germany

German protesters in 1974 against the nuclear reactor in Kaiserstuhl, the first nuclear plant ever blocked by citizen protests. Note that the signs they are carrying read “no power plant in Kaiserstuhl.” The primary concern was not radioactivity, but plans to industrialize an already prospering farming community. A lead production plant was also planned in the area as a buyer of the nuclear power, with more industry to come. Source: Sasbach archive.
