Massive Protests And Blockades Of Nuclear Shipment In France And Germany

People from all walks of life and age groups in Germany and France are protesting the Castor nuclear shipments from Valogne France to Gorleben Germany. Farmers blockade tracks with farm equipment and lifestock. Protesters chain themselves to the tracks in large numbers to block or at least delay the shipment to make it as difficult as possible in a clear sign that the public does not support the nuclear power policy their countries have thrust upon them.

Over the 1000 km journey people wait as word of the trains trip gets out. Areva does not announce the exact date and time the train will leave in the hopes to avoid protesters. While some of the protest points are relatively peaceful others are rather aggressive clashes with police.

The shipment this time carries spent fuel and plutonium.
