Pro-nuclear power protesters are set to gather and demonstrate in 30 cities Sunday as part of a ‘Stand up for Nuclear’ day of action.

Stand Up for Nuclear is a day of action started by the Nuclear Pride Coalition, an alliance of independent and non-profit organisations committed to saving and expanding nuclear energy.

The organisers say they want “to convey the importance of this clean, stable, cost-effective and practically CO2-free form of power generation”.

“We will stand up at train stations, central plazas, and public parks to educate people about the importance of nuclear and address widespread myths around nuclear energy,” the organisers’ website says.

It says nuclear is “under attack” in Europe, Asia, and North America by anti-nuclear activists who are funded by natural gas and renewable energy interests.

Events are scheduled to take place in cities including Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Mumbai and Manila. The flagship event is at Place Joachim-du-Bellay in Paris.
