Castor 2011? Sawing, removing ballast, scooping...!
Probably between 25 and 28 November 2011 a Castor transport will run from La Hague, France to the Lower Saxonian intermediate storage Gorleben, Germany. With a preliminary end of the nuclear power plant lifetime extension and the shutdown of some NPPs, the German Federal Government, by their standards, did quite a lot to pacify the German anti-nuclear movement that regained strength after the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. Germany is be facing a energy turnaround say the news ans the advertisements for the energy suppliers. This article explains the political backgrounds of the resistance in the Wendland region that doesn't calm down since decades, neither today. In addition, there will be and overview about possible forms of activism and necessary information about legal protection.
