Seven settlements in the Czech Republic protested on Saturday against the potential creation of deep burials for radioactive waste, according to Radio Praha.
Activists organized relay races, competitions and concerts, to protest against the government's intentions to create such burials. They have criticized the government for its lack of vision and respect for the views of the residents.
Construction of storage facilities may take place in the settlements of Certovka, Kraví Hora and others. If the plan is implemented, the facilities will start their work in 2065.
Nuclear waste often causes concern among the population with regard to its radioactivity, implying potential risks to human health.
