<nettime> Nuclear emigrancy


    [I just recieved this e-mail. Vincha Institute is only 15 kms eastern
    from the Belgrade's very center. --sloba]

=========================================================================

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.
