Lawmakers Join Protest

SYDNEY () -- A group of 48 Australian legislators has signed up to board a protest ship and join a growing anti-nuclear flotilla bound for France's South Pacific nuclear test site, voyage organizers said Tuesday.

The latest plan to sail to the Mururoa Atoll test site was outlined by two Sydney-based parliamentarians who have canvassed support from legislative colleagues around Australia and overseas for a privately chartered "voyage of peace and unity."
