On 12 January Salihorsk activists of the civil campaign European Belarus held a picket against construction of an atomic power station in Belarus.

Young activists were holding a streamer with the words: ‘No to nuclear power plant! Nature and health are more important than energy’ and handed out leaflets criticizing construction of a nuclear power plant in Belarus.

Bear in mind that on 21 January construction of the first houses for nuclear plant builders started in Astravets. ‘And in a year we are to start construction of an industrial site near Astravets’, stated the first vice prime minister of the Belarusian government Uladzimir Siamashka at the session of the National Council on labor and Social issues.

The north-west of Belarus is the land of beautiful lakes situated between picturesque hills. It’s the place which is rich in reservation parks and nature reserves. Narachanski national park, the most popular holiday resort in Belarus, is situated nearby.
