Austrian environmentalists opposed to the launch of the Czech Republic's Temelin nuclear power plant announced on Monday that they were halting their regular blockades of the Czech-Austrian border, in what they claimed was a bid to improve dialogue between the two countries. The announcement looks more like capitulation from Prague--both Czech Prime Minister Milos Zeman and even environmentally-friendly President Vaclav Havel said they wouldn't be forced to the negotiating table by the blockades. So how much public sympathy is there in Austria for the protests? Rob Cameron spoke with David Zelinger, head of on-line news at Austria's radio and TV organisation ORF.
