<nettime> (fwd) NATO may bomb VINCA Institute

--- Forwarded

Dear friends,

Something which we feared that might happen, seems very likely.

I can confirm now we expect that NATO planes will bomb VINCA Institute. In
the passed several days we received this warning, but today we got this
information as serious threat from the highest authorities.

Our reactor is not working for more than 15 years, but the significant
amount of 235-U enriched and unused fuel is still in its interior. Highly
radioactive material for everyday activities is also located in several
research laboratories.

I fear that a big disaster may occur. In the worst case, no Balkan and even
European country would be safe. Not to mention ecological catastrophe. I
still hope that this disaster could be avoided, unless we are already late.

I would appreciate if you succeed in informing as many people as possible
on the eventual tragedy. God bless you.
