29 May 2011 - Germany. During the nuclear summit attended by chancellor Angela Merkel, Greenpeace activists unfurl a 3 x 18 meter banner on the Brandenburg Gate in support of the German government’s plans for the immediate closure of eight of the country's nuclear power plants. Greenpeace has hailed the move as a very important step towards ending nuclear power globally. However, delaying the closure of the remaining nine plants is both dangerous and unnecessary.
