Stop MOX Shipments!

Shipments of MOX (mixed oxide of plutonium and uranium) fuel have resumed for the first time in six years. CNIC is participating in a campaign led by Kyoto-based Green Action which opposes these shipments. The first of what may turn out to be many shipments arrived in Japan in May 2009.
