Green Party wants Ban on Uranium Mining in Finland

The Green League's party council is calling for a ban on uranium mining in Finland. "Bad decisions on nuclear power plants are now getting a follow-up with uranium mines. This madness simple has to be brought to an end," says Green MP Erkki Pulliainen.Pulliainen added the view that a few years of mining operations are not worth ruining the reputations of Kainuu and Lapland as travel destinations. The Greens intended to oppose uranium mining on both the local and national level.
