BNP Paribas, is the major sponsor of the French Masters tennis tournament and provides more funding to the nuclear industry than any other bank in the world. Currently BNP Paribas has plans to fund a dangerously obsolete nuclear reactor in Brazil – the Angra 3 reactor. Learn more about our campaign to stop nuclear investments.

Ademir de Castro, 56, fisherman:

"The company itself is always collecting water from the sea to check if there is no contamination, but the community never has access to the results and I cannot say if the fish are contaminated or not … I think it is absurd to build a nuclear power station here, but they have already built two and now are building a third one. Who would have the courage to protest against them? We know about the danger, but we must accept it."

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 Tell BNP Paribas not to fund the dangerous, out-of-date Angra 3 nuclear reactor:
