In effect of intensive actions and civic mobilisation in February 2012 referendum took place in which 94% of citizens of Mielno voted against location of nuclear power station in the village of Gąski. Citizens' protest had been supported by members of two biggest parliamentary political groups (otherwise supportive for nuclear power): Civic Platform (Koszalin MP Marek Hok) and Law and Justice (Koszalin MP Czesław Hoc),[3] as well as non-parliamentary Green Party [4] and councillors of nearby city of Kołobrzeg.
