1300 arrested at nuke train demo

german police officers clash with anti-nuclear activists attempting to block a train carrying nuclear waste.

The German police have arrested about 1300 anti-nuclear activists attempting to prevent a train carrying nuclear waste from delivering its cargo to a facility near the northern town of Gorleben.

According to AP, another 150 people were injured in the incident on Sunday as police used batons and tear gas to disperse the activists.

Thousands of demonstrators had also chained themselves to the rail tracks near the train’s final destination.

Over the past few days, activists in Germany have held demonstrations against the train carrying radioactive nuclear waste from France.

This is the last shipment of recycled waste that the French nuclear giant Areva will send to Germany since a nuclear agreement between the two countries has expired and will not be renewed.
