Activists were protesting against the government-granted extension of the operational timespan of several of Germany's older nuclear power plants, which Chancellor Merkel's government claims is necessary to bridge demand before planned renewable energy projects begin operation. The activists claim their call for an end to nuclear power is all the more vital given the current, potential catastrophe brewing at at least one reactor at the tsunami-damaged Fukushima facility in Japan.
