The project was given the go-ahead in October 2001 despite protests from the Irish government, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, and CORE - Cumbrians Opposed to a Radioactive Environment. Irish protesters fear emissions from the Cumbrian plant will have a dire effect on their country and believe the plant would increase the threat of terrorism. *100603*Sunrise over the MOX (Mixed Oxide) reprocessing plant at Sellafield, which the Irish Republic is launching a fesh bid to close down at The Hague latetr Tuesday June 10, 2003.
