Bataan bishop issues pastoral letter against nuclear plant revival


BALANGA CITY: The Bataan bishop has issued a diocesan pastoral letter opposing the revival or rehabilitation of the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) in Morong town. Bishop Ruperto Santos of the Diocese of Balanga is asking all priests in 11 towns and one city to read the letter and for eight diocesan schools in the province to post in their bulletin boards and give copies to students. Some groups are pushing for the rehabilitation of BNPP as solution to the impending power crisis. Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan, while bishop of the Diocese of Balanga, also issued a pastoral letter in 2009 about the threat of BNPP to life, livelihood and environment.
