Vehicles drive past demonstrating Greenpeace anti-nuclear activists on a road from Cherbourg and the COGEMA nuclear reprocessing plant at La Hague, October 2, 2004. Two ships, the Pacific Teal and the Pacific Pintail, transporting 140 kg of weapons-grade plutomium, left the U.S. September 20 and are soon due to arrive in Cherbourg. The nuclear waste will be conditioned here before being transported from this Northwestern french port some 1200 kms by road to a plutonium fuel fabrication facility in Cadarache, Southern France.
