Refused request for registration
Title: My voice against nuclear power
Date of refusal: 30/05/2012
Language of the request: English

Subject-matter:
The citizens of Europe demand a future without nuclear power and with a sustainable energy system. We appeal to the European Commission to take immediate action.

Main objectives:
Shut down all high risk nuclear power plants as soon as possible and make phase-out plans for all nuclear power plants in the European Union mandatory. To ensure that operators of nuclear power plants pay the true costs in terms of decommissioning, waste storage, liability and uranium mining. To promote the application and development of renewable energy sources and enforce energy efficiency measures sufficient to substitute the use of nuclear material and fossil fuels.

Reason of refusal:
The proposed citizens' initiative falls manifestly outside the framework of the Commission's powers to submit a proposal for a legal act of the Union for the purpose of implementing the Treaties.
