Portuguese and Spanish environmental groups have announced a protest outside the Spanish Consulate in Lisbon to call for the closure of the Almaraz nuclear plant across the border.

The protest is planned for the 12th of January and has been called in a bid to force Madrid into dialogue with interest groups over the closure of the controversial plant.

The Portuguese government has meanwhile taken the matter up with Brussels after Spain approved the building of a nuclear waste warehouse at Almaraz without holding the required consultations or impact studies.
