A Story You Can Actually Read: Nuclear Power Piece in Foreign Policy

Apologies to all you non-German speakers for my last piece, which probably didn’t do much for you beyond the pretty pictures. Here’s one you’ll have an easier time making sense of.

And since FP decided not to use any of the pretty pictures I took this weekend at the anti-nuke rally I describe in the piece, here are a few for your viewing pleasure:

A young boy placed this sticker, reading "Nuclear power? No thanks," on a Mercedes just as I approached it. I'm particularly proud of this photo, I must admit.

A poster at the rally showing Angela Merkel next to Mr. Burns, behind the text, "We're voting for nuclear power."

A boy waving a "Nuclear power? No thanks" flag in front of the Reichstag, the German capitol building.

"And now?"

This sign has the acronyms of the parties in the ruling coalition, the Christian Democrats and the Free Democrats, in a radioactive waste symbol.

Protesters with flags of the opposition Social Democrats and Green Party and the traditional anti-nuke motto, "Nuclear power? No thanks."
