Agostinho de Araújo Soares, 57, Angra I nuclear power station former employee:
"I worked for over 10 years at Angra 1, changing the fuel and pipes. In the final years, I was already feeling very weak, with pain all over my body. When my hair started to fall out I was fired.
Recently, I found out that my heart is swollen and I think that my bones have been affected, but I can't find a hospital to treat me .… no hospital in nearby Rio will want to treat me, because they don't treat people who suffer from radioactivity … I live 15 km away from the nuclear power station. Seems to be far, right? I tell you, however, that there won't be time to evacuate everyone if an accident occurs."
If BNP Paribas goes ahead with financing the Angra 3 reactor - it will burden the Brazilian people and environment with a dangerously obsolete reactor. Tell BNP Paribas not to fund the dangerous, out-of-date Angra 3 nuclear reactor:
