Demonstrators Protest Castor Nuclear Waste Transport

Tree trunks lie on the railtracks that will be used to transport nuclear waste on November 25, 2011 in Leitstade, near Metzingen, Germany. A train carrying the Castor containers of processed, spent nuclear fuel started from La Hague in France Wednesday for its journey to the Gorleben temporary nuclear waste storage facility in Germany, and thousands of protesters are expected to attempt to blockade the route.
