Greenpeace members on trial in France for daring nuclear break-in

Fifty-five Greenpeace activists from some 20 countries go on trial in France on Thursday for an audacious break-in at the country’s oldest nuclear power plant to highlight weaknesses at atomic installations. The March 18 protest at the Fessenheim power plant in eastern France near the border with Germany and Switzerland resulted in the government ordering stronger security at nuclear facilities. The activists include 21 Germans, seven Italians and others from France, Turkey, Austria, Hungary, Australia and Israel and several other nations. The court in the eastern French city of Colmar will try and determine whether the Greenpeace members had smashed a metal security gate with their truck to enter the plant or simply broken a lock to get in as they claim.
