In this issue of the Monitor:
- A short report on the remarkable 50,000-strong 'human chain' protest in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands on June 25.
- A half-year report card on the nuclear power industry ‒ it is shaping up to be one of its worst ever years along with 1986 (Chernobyl) and 2011 (Fukushima).
- Vladimir Slivyak writes about the efforts of Russia's Rosatom to rebrand itself as a climate champion.
- A review of the plan to turn South Australia into the world's nuclear waste dump; the plan can now be officially declared dead.
The Nuclear News section has reports on the UN nuclear weapons ban treaty negotiations; Urenco's willingness to provide nuclear fuel to reactors in the US producing tritium for weapons; a useful Laka Foundation project listing all the accidents recorded by the IAEA since 1990 (the IAEA removes public records after one year); a bizarre plan by 'pro-nuclear environmentalists' to promote nuclear power in North Korea; and more.
