    Sum aknowledgement:
    The birds arrived just in time to move a bit further up the line, but the politbureau left a message to you at the old place, just ask the information staff.
    The committee for peoples health asks you to bring the other medpack with you or send it in with the next swarm, language is no problem around here, so they can get directions easily.
    Lot's of bandits around here...

    according to afp and several other news services the train will start today 14.00 in Valognes to roll east.
    french activists tried to gain access to the heavily guarded train trackage but were held off by CRS-riotcops covered by helicopters and massive CS-teargassings. cops try to hold a 500 meter no-go-zone around the railroadtrack.

    hurry up pirate, and bring that package with yours! them bandits will need it!

    french activists kept on playing cat and mouse, delaying the train for hours until it reached finally the french/german border.
    news reports give 19 000 clone warriors securing the possibly used rail roads west of the border - the dance already began in metzingen, roughly 30 km away from gorleben with a street blockade holding off several cop-convoys, watercannons and teargas was deployed, seven officers suffered, 5 bandits got caught.
    activists are trying to "schotter" the trackage in several places of the wendland, again it's cats&mice with the cops.
    in nothern hessia rail road installations were attacked with fire and the signal system damaged while several anti-nuclear mass-protests were held in hessia and the rhineland-pfalz, around 30 000 people participated.
    ah yes:
    the cop trade union protested because of the radiation exposure the officers accompanying the train have to suffer... :ecouteurs:

    after a stop for several hours today, the Castor transport of highly radioactive nuclear waste from France is moving again. according to police the train carrying the containers was leaving the freight terminal at Hamburg-Maschen and rolled towards Lüneburg. According to the Citizens' Initiative Lüchow-Dannenberg the train has already been on the road for longer than all his predecessors in recent years - namely, more than 92 hours.

    further delays can be expected: at noon the police had not yet succeeded to end all blocking actions on the 60-kilometer rail link between Lüneburg and the transfer station dannenberg. Police said there were at least two places where several demonstrators had chained themselves to the tracks or a pyramid. "Since the health and safety of the protestors at these blockades are first priority, these measures will take some time," said the police.
    In addition, more and more anti-nuclear activists also rallied in the final 19-kilometer stretch of road between the camp and the transfer station.

    Last year the Castor transport reached the intermediate storage facility only after 92 hours, which had until then been the longest Transport. From the perspective of the protesters any delay of the transportation is a success. For Lower Saxony on the other hand, this means increased high costs.
    Last year, the expenditure of the country for the Castor transport summed up to 36.5 million euros.

    Meanwhile, the police chief friedrich lüneburg-Niehörster complained about the increasing level of violence in the protests against the Castor transport of highly radioactive nuclear waste in Wendland. According to the "Welt am Sonntag" (allemand newspaper) Niehöster reported to a group of lower saxony state parliament responsible for the transport, that police were pelted with golf balls, for example, which had been prepared with nails. Been in a wood near the road transport route Metzingen is a policewoman who was alone in a squad car, was allegedly threatened with Molotov cocktails.

    Niehörster reported according to "Welt am Sonntag" of arson attacks on cable trays in the railroad installations and of sawed-on trees that should be thrown at police cars. "larger parts of the protest scene show "excessive violence", the newspaper quoted Niehörster further, It could be that "this violence seem to attract more people than before."

    Green Party leader Claudia Roth, however, condemned the police action against the anti-nuclear protests in Wendland sharply. The actions of the officers were "absolutely excessive," Roth said at the national party convent of the Greens in Kiel.
    The police actions are "an attack on democracy". she also justified the blockades of Castor's:
    "For me it's about the right to protest, and the blockades are means of protest."

    Re: INTERNATIONAL CASTOR MOBILISATION

    due to real life circumstances i'm a bit out of touch with the realities at the moment, but the protests and resistance continues, despite 1300 people "kettled" in and released only after a flash-sentence from a nearby legal court. massive riot-cop attacks on protest camps and gathering-areas weren't enough to break the organized cooperation of resistance groups along the way of the castor, the transport is still rolling - now for more than 100 hours on the rail road.
    several news reports describe the cops serious problem to clean up the numerous barricades, sit-in blockades and nameless heroes like these:
    four farmers from the vicinity of brokdorf chained into a hellishly complicated concrete pyramid construction barring the rail road for 15 hours - and only giving up after the cops incompetence to remove them became dangerous! :thumbsup:

    Radioactive Cargo Delayed
    Thousands of Protesters Obstruct Nuclear Waste Transport

    Massive protests are putting the brakes on a train carrying radioactive waste from France to Germany. The annual shipment, always a focal point for protesters, has never before taken this long to reach its destination. Anti-nuclear demonstrators are gathering to impede the controversial convoy on its final stretch.
    Thousands of anti-nuclear protesters have stalled a train carrying radioactive waste from France to Germany. A string of clashes and obstructions has made the journey the slowest one since the annual shipments of radioactive waste began in 1995.
    The controversial cargo is headed for the Gorleben temporary storage facility for nuclear waste in northern Germany. On Monday, the 11 containers are to be moved by crane to a special transporter which will carry them the final 20 kilometers (12 miles) by road.
    The so-called Castor containers -- the acronym for the casks used for the transport and storage of the radioactive material -- have long been the subject of protests by Germany's vocal anti-nuclear lobby. Demonstrators argue that the waste containers and the interim storage facility are unsafe. Germany, meanwhile, has still not reached a decision on where the waste will be permanently stored.

    Massive Police Operation
    The shipment, the first since Japan's Fukishima nuclear disaster, faced large protests in France where activists damaged the tracks to try and halt the progress of the cargo.
    Thousands of people in Germany also interrupted its journey on Sunday and Monday, forcing it to proceed at a snail's pace, covering 1,200 kilometers (746 miles) in 109 hours.
    In a few cases, the protests on Sunday weren't as peaceful as planned. In one area of forest along the route, the situation intensified between masked protesters and police. Security officials were attacked by stones and firecrackers and barricades were burned. "It is an intensity of violence we don't normally know around here," said Dietmar Schilff, the head of the state chapter of the police officers' union. Police confronted protesters with water cannons and batons, sparking serious criticism.
    Claudia Roth, the national co-chair of the environmentalist Green Party, called the police actions "absolutely overexcessive," saying they were an "attack on democracy." Roth herself participated in the protest.
    But the police union denied the allegation. The head of the national chapter of the police union, Bernhard Witthaut, said police had acted appropriately and made efforts to deescalate the situation. "However, they also have the task of ensuring the safe transport of the containers to the temporary storage facility," he said.

    Numerous Injuries
    On Sunday, more than 200 people were reported injured in the protests. Around 160 protesters suffered after being struck by batons or being subjected to tear gas, the protest organizers claimed. The police, for their part, claimed that 51 security officials had been injured in the deployment. Officials claim that 16 police cars were damaged and several arrests were made.
    The weekend protests triggered considerable delays of the shipment. Hundreds of officers removed protesters from the rail lines near the town of Dannenberg in Germany on Sunday, temporarily detaining many demonstrators who had refused to leave. Some activists chained themselves to a 600 kilogram (1,323 pound) concrete pyramid they had built on the rails.
    In the southwestern city of Metzigen, protesters ignited a barricade of car tires during three days of violent clashes between police and demonstrators in the city.
    Anti-nuclear protesters have already gathered to block the road to Gorleben, in the western German state of Lower Saxony. In total, some 20,000 German police have been mobilized.
    jas -- with wire reports

    the transport reached the temporary storage site yesterday, after 125 hours on the rail road and the protestors and activists were busy holding it off until the very last minute, covered by others two people even managed to climb up the leading truck of the convoy after the castors were unloaded and heading towards the storage site on road, paralysing the convoi again for almost an hour.
    now the analysis of the transport started: 125 hours, more than 28 million euros, cops at the limits of power handling capacity and their trade union complaining about the lack of support by the state politics...
    radiant future? we are making progress...
