We are a small team of volunteers organising an international anti-nuclear summer camp in Döbeln, Saxony, Germany. We all have been involved in the anti-nuclear scene for years and have previously organised two other camps in Döbeln: one in 2012 and the other one in 2017.

This year we are organising a camp again because in recent years there has been a lack of international anti-nuclear events in Europe. We are trying to rectify it and hope that others will follow our lead. It is very important that activists from different countries and continents can come together to share information, network and learn from each other. People resisting nuclear projects in different parts of the world often are cut off from a trustworthy source of information and face difficulties, in some cases even prosecution, from authorities and developers.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

You may not hear often about nuclear power in mainstream media, but there is a powerful nuclear lobby pushing for extension of existing reactors and with plans for building new ones despite it being a dangerous technology with no solutions for storage of high level nuclear waste - there simply is not a way how to store it securely for 100 000 years!

2019 marks 33 years since the Chernobyl disaster, which contaminated vast areas of Europe and the number of people affected keeps growing, not decreasing because a lot of people who were children or young adults in 1986 are now parents and/or grandparents. This year also marks 8 years since Fukushima, another nuclear disaster that does not get much coverage in the media anymore although the constant emissions of nuclear substances will have a tremendous impact worldwide in the future.

ABOUT THE CAMP

The camp will take place between August 12-18. It is organised independently using private funds and grants, however, we still need 7470 euros. We hope to cover part of it by camp fees, but we need help in the form of donations. We want this event to be inclusive and there are international activists who are unable to cover their own travel costs. We have been able to help them in the past and we hope to be able to do it again this year. Donations would also be used to cover camp food costs and travel expenses for our kitchen team.

We will be grateful for donations, no matter how small. Every cent can help our cause. Even if we do not reach our target, the donations will still help our camp.
