Greenpeace activists spend the night waiting for the imminent arrival of two BNFL (British Nuclear Fuels) ships, which are carrying 140kg of radioactive weapons-grade plutonium, Cherbourg, France. The Pacific Pintail and the Pacific Teal left the U.S. port of Charleston on September 20th. Greenpeace believes the shipment conducted by the US and France is unnecessarily threatening international security and putting the environment at risk.Locations:Alpine Countries-Cherbourg-FranceDate:1 Oct, 2004Credit:© Greenpeace / Philip ReynaersMaximum size:3072px X 2048pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Flags-Greenpeace activists-KWCI (GPI)-Night-Nuclear (campaign title)-Props-SymbolsShoot: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.
