Thousands were rallying in Berlin Saturday, to demand an immediate end to Germany's use of nuclear energy. The government plans to shut down Germany's 17 nuclear plants by 2021, but protesters say they should close sooner. Some 20 percent of Germany's energy comes from its nuclear plants. The protesters waved flags and blew whistles while they marched Saturday to Brandenburg Gate. Organizers say the tens of thousands of anti-atomic demonstrators include several hundred who drove tractors to Berlin from near one of the nation's most notorious nuclear waste dumps in Gorleben.
