NAM Tae-Je, KIM Seong-hwan


Wolsong has a nuclear power plant, nuclear waste dump sites, disposal facilities, and 51% of the country’s high-level nuclear waste. HWANG Bunhui developed thyroid cancer because of the radiation from the power plant. She and other residents have been protesting, demanding the government to relocate them, but they haven’t received any answer. The 618 thyroid cancer patients living near the plant including HWANG Bunhui filed a class-action suit against the Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power.
