Greenpeace Activists Occupy French Nuclear Plant | ABC News

About 60 Greenpeace activists mounted the roof of a nuclear reactor in eastern France on Tuesday, staging an hours-long protest against this country’s reliance on atomic power — before police dropped down by helicopter onto the hulking gray structure and detained them.

Activists hung a banner reading “Stop Risking Europe” next to one of the reactors at the Fessenheim plant near the German and Swiss borders. France’s oldest nuclear plant, Fessenheim has become a flashpoint for anti-nuclear campaigners who say it is unsafe and should have been closed long ago.
