Video - German protesters block rail track
HUNDREDS of riot cops with helicopter support have cleared the way for the Castor nuclear waste train in Germany.
This video from graswurzel.tv (grass roots tv) shows how activists approached the railway line through woods, before evading police to stage a massive occupation of the track numnering up to 5,000 people.
More than 1,000 people were arrested for refusing to leave and police also clashed with two groups of protesters that hurled stones and fireworks, say corporate media.
There were clashes in France last week when protesters managed to sabotage the line and torch a police vehicle.
The shipment paused overnight south of Hamburg and is expected to reach its destination with considerable delay on Monday.
