BERLIN (AP) — Dozens of environmental activists on Sunday climbed on top of Berlin’s landmark Brandenburg Gate to demand a speedy end to the use of atomic energy.
The Greenpeace activists unfurled an 60-foot-wide banner on top of the monument that read, “Every day of nuclear power is one too many.”
Thousands of people demonstrated across Germany on Saturday to demand a speedy end to the use of atomic energy.
Japan’s post-earthquake nuclear crisis has galvanized long-standing German opposition to nuclear power.
The Japanese nuclear disaster prompted the government to freeze plans to extend the life of Germany’s plants, order a shutdown of its seven oldest reactors and seek a quicker transition to renewable energy.
