CORE – or “on how to end Chernobyl (atomic reactor explosion 1986 / radiation) and the resettlement of people in contaminated areas in Belarus”
CORE – from “Cooperation” and “Rehabilitation”. Rehabilitation means: Restoration.
CORE – program launch in Belarus: “Bragin”, “Chetschersk”, “Slavgorod” and “Stolin”.
CORE – the successor program of the failed program “ETHOS”.
The already existing Chernobyl NGO’s do not play a role in the CORE program, beside themself participate on CORE – with their own (already short) budget – raised from international donations.
The CORE program was made public by the IBB (Link) in 2004, after developed behind secret doors.
Who developed CORE / ETHOS and why is it the mayor international Chernobyl project today? Simple Answer: CEPN – “Centre d`etudes sur L’Evaluation de la Protection dans la domaine du Nucleaire” – a Study Center for radiation protection in the atomic sector, which should controll both research and science. CEPN already developed the failed ETHOS program and is also responsible for the today programs of CORE. View CEPN website HERE
But CEPN is not a NGO. CEPN was founded by the French Électricité de France (the mayor atomic power BIG player in the E.U.), French electricity association, and by CEA, the Comissariat for atomic power AREVA (former COGEMA). Not far away from IAEA. Remember the IAEA: They deny any links between radiation and illness excpet thyroid cancer.
Now everybody can see, that ending Chernobyl or making it’s results on health is even tried to manipulate by so called humanitarian projects like CORE / ETHOS. By the same people who sell the ideology of atomic power around the planet. It also shows that you can get BIG money by BIG players, but only if doing what they are saying. Independent science and research does hardly exist anymore. Simple truth, like the gag contract between the WHO and the IAEA from 1959, which does not allow the WHO to publish illness and death numbers from Chernobyl radiation on their own. So, don’t expect the WHO to criticise the CORE / ETHOS program or the attempt from Belarussian Government and the IAEA to end Chernobyl. Can you end halflife periods?
The WHO does know that 300 Million people on Earth have become victims from atomic power, Uranium caving etc…
The Budget of the CORE program: 5 Million EUROs. But there are also papers which show a Budget of 4 Million EUROs. The truth is: You need Billions of EUROs to “handle” Chernobyl: More than 2 Million people are still living in contaminated areas in Belarus. How to evacuate them? Build endless houses? Why such a small budget? If you would push more money into it you would admit that Chernobyl was what it was: A unpayable Catastrophe. And one 2nd thing: You would admit that atomic power is unpayable – none of the atomic reactors on this planet are assured. A big crash like the Chernobyl one would cause a damage of 2 – 5,000,000,000,000 EUROs in the U.S. or in the E.U. Goodbye exports…
So it’s cheaper to develop CORE – which tells the people to come back and stay where they are: In contaminated areas.
How is the CORE / ETHOS program processed and evaluated? Is it possible to suggest own proejects inside of the CORE program? Apply here: PAC (The Preparation and Assessment Commintee). But the projects are also suggested by the CT (Coordination Team), which consists of a Belarussian Coordinator of CORE and out of national and international represantatives and “experts”. The last approval is made by the Jury AB (Approval Board), which consists of three state represantatives (means: three NGOs): the IBB, the DTHV (German Chernobylhelpfederation Munich) and one French NGO. Yes – in theory. But the importat administration positions are taken. And it is a long road through all these institutions.
1) CORE does not ban the worst from the Chernobyl catastrophe
2) CORE does not protect children, families and people in general
3) CORE does not ease destitute
4) CORE is not build on partnership with already (since 20 years) existing NGO’s
5) CORE is not a honest dedication in civil society, a honest stock taking and analysis of interests
CORE tells the people to live in contaminated areas.
CORE / Resettlement of contaminated areas is financed by the atomic industry.
Chernobyl is a market in which various interetests compete against each other.
The IAEA decideds which case is “valid” – neither the U.N. or the WHO can do this.
INSIDE OF THE IAEA: Physicists decide over medical results – NOT medics.
