|Environmental movement in South Africa|
Koeberg Alert is an anti-nuclear activist organisation which emerged from an earlier pressure group in Cape Town called "Stop Koeberg" in 1983. Both were intended to halt construction of the first nuclear power station in South Africa at Duynefontein, 28 km NNW of Cape Town: the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station.
After failing to influence the then ruling National Party it turned to the broader democratic and anti-apartheid movement, hoping to influence future policy.
Forging strong links with Earthlife Africa and the emerging Environmental Justice National Forum in the 1990s, it was revitalised in opposition to President Thabo Mbeki's Pebble-Bed Modular Reactor programme in 2001 and the emergence of "Nuclear-1" under President Jacob Zuma.
