This article introduces an exploratory study on controversies that arose in Mexico since the late seventies till the present time due to the nuclear power production. Contextualized in a scenario characterized by the existence of projects that seek to boost nuclear energy and with it, the appearance of new resistant voices that emerged after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011. Reviewing literature on controversies, resistance to technologies and contentious politics, we identify key actors and arguments that conforms processes of public discussion regarding nuclear power. Furthermore, we analyze continuities, breaches and the impacts of the opposition in the last three decades.
