5000 people block 2 km, 500m track destroyed

YAY!!! 07.11.2010 - 16:53 takes a break after huge successes in getting the rocks off from under the railway track on a 500 m stretch ...

Meanwhile 5000 militant protestors occupy a 2 km stretch close by the destroyed piece of track ... in the forest west of Hitzacker on the map below ...

The 10+1 cators now have a delay of about 12 hours and i have no clue how it wants to get through the last 60 kms betwwen Lünburg and Dannenberg, the final train station before the 20 km of road to the storage hall.
