Germans take anti-nuclear protest to Angela Merkel’s office

Germans protest extension of nuclear energy programs and nuclear waste disposal plans, Google hosted news, The Canadian Press:By The Associated Press (CP) – 26 Oct 10, BERLIN — Demonstrators have marched through Berlin to protest planned nuclear waste storage in northern Germany and the government’s continued support of nuclear energy.Around 100 protesters walked to the German chancellor’s office in the capital, surrounding a truck carrying a mock nuclear waste storage barrel.
Chancellor Angela Merkel approved a law in September extending use of Germany’s nuclear power plants by an average of 12 years, a decision the majority of Germans opposed.

The demonstrators are also protesting the planned transportation in November of 11 nuclear waste containers to the tiny town of Gorleben. It was chosen as a nuclear storage site three decades ago, and has since become a rallying point for tens of thousands of anti-nuclear protesters.
