Potential Trouble on the Border between Austria and the Czech Republic

On June 2, 2007 an extremist political party will attempt to block an undesignated border crossing between Austria and the Czech Republic.  As you may know, the Czech Republic is developing a nuclear power plant in Temelin (south Bohemia), which many Austrians claim does not have the appropriate safety systems.

Several Austrian anti-nuclear groups have been protesting this issue at border crossings and now the same thing is going to happen on the other side of the border.  The Czech activists have announced that it is their intention to target only Austrian drivers.

If you plan on driving in Austria or between Austria and the Czech Republic, avoid all border crossings between the countries on June 2.
