IRNA: Germany Arrests 25 Anti-Nuclear Protesters

From those champions of nuclear power at Iran’s IRNA:

25 anti-nuclear activists arrested in Germany for blocking transformator shipment

Berlin, Aug 10, IRNA

At least 25 people were arrested in the north German port city of Geesthacht on Thursday for briefly blocking the shipment of a nuclear power transformator bound for an atomic power plant in the northern town of Kruemmel.

Anti-nuclear protesters tried to skive off a lock overnight to stop the shipment of the transformator which was due to replace an other fire-damaged transformator at the Kruemmel nuclear power plant Demonstrators holding up banners called for the shutdown of the old Krueemel nuclear reactor.

The new Kruemmel transformator was taken from another nuclear power plant in the northern city of Brunsbuettel which was also shut down because of safety problems in the wake of the June 28 fire incident at Krueemel.

It remains still unclear when Kruemmel and Brunsbuettel will be operational again…

So many ironies in one place.

But will someone tell these German protesters that “global warming” was invented by Lady Thatcher’s government to try to justify the increased use of nuclear power?

Still, isn’t it funny we have never seen any Western demonstrations against Iran’s nuclear power program? Or North Korea’s?

Of course that is nothing new. There was hardly a peep from the anti-nukes crowd about Chernobyl.

America’s enemies can do no wrong.
