Greenpeace, groups and citizens oppose the transportation of CASTOR rail containers of reprocessed German nuclear waste from the La Hague reprocessing plant in France to the Gorleben interim storage facility in Germany. The CASTOR (Cask for Storage and Transport of Radioactive material) is a train convoy carrying eleven 100-tonne containers of radioactive waste. Measurements of these containers show that the radioactivity in each one is higher than what was released at Chernobyl in 1986 - this makes the CASTOR transport effectively a Chernobyl on wheels.In original language:Protest gegen AtommuelltransportDemonstranten auf der zentralen Kundgebung gegen den Atommuelltransport von der Wiederaufarbeitungsanlage in La Hague ins Atommuell-Zwischenlager Gorleben in Deutschland.Locations:Dannenberg-Europe-Germany-WendlandDate:6 Nov, 2010Credit:© Gordon Welters / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Balloons-CASTOR-Crowds-Day-Demonstrations-Flags-KWCI (GPI)-Nuclear (campaign title)-Nuclear waste-Nuclear waste transports-Outdoors-Radioactive wasteShoot:Kumi Naidoo at Castor Protest in GermanyGreenpeace opposes the shipment of nuclear waste bound from Valognes, France to Goleben, Germany.The CASTOR (Cask for Storage and Transport of Radioactive material) nuclear waste transport is an example of the nuclear madness that must end. It is a train convoy carrying eleven 100-tonne containers of radioactive waste that is reprocessed in France and returns to Germany each year for storage. Measurements of these eleven containers done by ANDRA (National Agency for Radioactive Waste Management) show that the radioactivity in each container is higher than what was released at Chernobyl in 1986 - this makes the CASTOR transport effectively a Chernobyl on wheels.
