2009Arguable partnership: Sortir du nucléaire
2009Arguable partnership: Areva creates, in collaboration with ONG Sherpa and Médecins of the World, an observatory of health around the uranium mining sites, in particular in Niger and Gabon. The Criirad (Commission of research and independent information on the radioactivity), which had taken part in these investigations, emitted " many réserves" on the joint initiative of Areva and Sherpa, fearing that it could be " a new operation of communication". The Network " Leave the nucléaire" expressed its greater perplexity in front of this surprising volte-face of the Sherpa association, known to fight - and not to accompany - the activities of the multinationals whenever they pollute or do not respect the Human Rights.: AFP
