A convoy of 70 vehicles is to drive through the centre of Vienna on Tuesday, to protest against the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Members of the protest, called 'Wake Up Vienna!,' will deliver a list of demands to the Czech Embassy and the Austrian Government. Protestors also plan to install a billboard outside the Austrian Parliament, to warn of the dangers of nuclear power. The Austrian anti-nuclear lobby has rejected an agreement reached last week by Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel and Czech Prime Minister Milos Zeman. Prague agreed to an environmental impact study sponsored by the European Union, and will not put Temelin into full operation until the study is completed.
