Greenpeace organizes a popular “zombie” race in five nuclear power plants

Greenpeace has organized five simultaneous zombie-themed popular races around five other nuclear power plants for October 30.

The races, called "Nuclear Running Dead", are going to have, according to the organization, a playful, sporty nature, very visual and open to all audiences.

The tests, which will be held on the eve of the Halloween party, have been scheduled in Miranda de Ebro (Burgos), L ”Ametlla de Mar (Tarragona), Gárgoles de Abajo (Guadalajara), Saucedilla (Cáceres) and Valencia.

Greenpeace, which is calling an event of this type for the first time in Spain, has reported today that it is not a protest or demonstration, but rather races with which it wants to make visible the most “zombie” side of nuclear energy, "Finished despite the efforts of the sector and its beneficiaries to keep it alive."

Participants, who can register on the website, Will be able to compete in two categories at distances of 10 and 4 kilometers, respectively, and characterized by the zombie theme, since the organization will put a makeup service available at each test.

To participate, it will be necessary to contribute a registration fee of 5 euros, of which Greenpeace will allocate one to the Chernobyl Elkartea association, which has worked since 1995 for the welfare of children who are still suffering the consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Spain, six nuclear

Six power plants still operate in Spain, including Garoña, whose useful life ended more than three years ago and which does not produce electricity but which has not been definitively closed.

Greenpeace believes that the nuclear park should be replaced by clean energy when its useful life ends, something that will happen at the beginning of the next decade.

The organization identifies nuclear energy as a “zombie” energy since, in addition to the efforts to keep the plants alive when their life ends, it leaves a toxic legacy of tons of radioactive waste, which will remain for thousands of years as a threat to the people and the environment.
