Castor-Protest auf den Schienen bei Lueneburg
Greenpeace Aktivisten haben sich an den Gleisen auf der Castorstrecke zwischen Lueneburg und Dannenberg, kurz hinter dem Bahnhof Lueneburg, festgemacht. Auf einem Banner fordern sie „Ausstieg aus Gorleben – Stopp Castor“. Die Aktivisten protestieren damit gegen den Castortransport ins niedersaechsische Wendland.
Greenpeace activists have chained themselves to the rails during the 13th Castor nuclear waste transport from the reprocessing unit in La Hague to the interim storage in Gorleben. In 11 Castor containters the shipment contains the radioactivity of 44 Fukushima disasters. After a trip of nearly five and a half days from Normandy in France the 13th delivery of processed German nuclear waste reached the “temporary” storage hall in Gorleben, a village in northwest Germany at about 10 pm on Monday. Police perpetrated massive violence and breaches of the law against demonstrators, injuring at least 355 with truncheons, gas, dogs, horses and water cannons. The 25,000 activists in the county were the second largest number ever. In the Gorleben area resistance took the form of rail and road squats, chain-ons (one caused a 14-hour delay in the train journey) and massive road traffic disruptions, notably by farmers with tractors and agricultural machinery.
