The activists obstructed the road between the Cherbourg military port and a reprocessing complex on the la Hague peninsula. The road will be used for transporting the dangerous cargo, which Greenpeace believes is highly vulnerable to accidents or deliberate attack.Locations:Alpine Countries-Cherbourg-FranceDate:5 Oct, 2004Credit:© Greenpeace / Philip ReynaersMaximum size:2048px X 3072pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Arrests-Greenpeace activists-KWCI (GPI)-Nuclear (campaign title)-PoliceShoot:Nuclear Action in FranceGreenpeace protests against the transport of weapons-grade plutonium, from Los Alamos USA, which will travel to Cadarache nuclear facility north of Marseilles. The transport began in France after the arrival of UK-flagged commercial nuclear cargo ship, the Pacific Pintail, from Charleston, USA. Before reaching its final destination it will have travelled more than a thousand kilometres across France, passing by numerous highly populated communities. Greenpeace believes the shipment is unnecessary and highly vulnerable to accidents or deliberate attack.
