Farmers queue with their tractors near Gusborn, northern Germany, Saturday Nov. 26, 2011. They are on  their way to a demonstration in Dannenberg, to protest against the  transport and storage  of nuclear waste in Germany.  Vertical banner reads : Fukushima is everywhere. The  shipment of nuclear waste reprocessed in France crossed into Germany Friday on its way to a controversial storage site in Gorleben  that protesters say is unsafe. It is the first such shipment from France to Germany since Berlin decided to shut all its nuclear plants by 2022, following the disaster at Japan's Fukushima plant.  The transport is due to arrive at the storage site on Sunday.  (AP Photo/dapd/ Nigel Treblin)
