NGOs hold global anti-incineration protests

Some 200 environmental groups marked the fourth global day of action against waste incineration on Wednesday. In Europe, NGOs in Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Czech Republic and other countries are participating. In France, campaign groups are demanding a five-year moratorium on the development of new incinerators. They argue that government spending in the sector prevent investments in alternatives such as recycling. In Norway, a protest will run throughout the week outside the environment ministry. Dozens of groups are holding public information workshops and meetings with government officials. See Global day of action website.
