Interest in Mounting Anti-Nuke Protests Seems to be Fading

Upcoming NASA launch draws anti-nuke protesters, Orlando Sentinel

"About 30 demonstrators gathered outside the south gate of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Saturday to protest the upcoming launch of a plutonium-powered NASA probe. ... Saturday's event was very different from 1997, when 800 people showed up to protest the launch of NASA's Cassini spacecraft on a mission to Saturn with three times as much plutonium. Twenty-seven demonstrators were arrested, including some who scaled the base's security fence."

Editor's note: Wow. 30 demonstrators in 2006, 800 in 1997. I guess they are losing interest.
