Target Kansas City-nuclear weapons protestors from across the country join Kansas Citians at new nuke plant site

Photo of the protest by Eric Bowers.  See more at http://blog.ericbowersphoto.com/2010/08/kansas-city-nuclear-plant-protest/

Fourteen anti-nuclear weapons protestors were arrested Monday August 16, 2010 at a constructions site on the southern edge of Kansas City Missouri. Ground was broken at the site in July for what will be the first new nuclear weapons facility in the US in thirty-two years.

Approx 75 protestors walked onto the site and for a time stopped work by heavy earth moving equipment contracted by private developer Centerpoint-Zimmer. The facility is planned to replace the current Kansas City Plant, operated by Honeywell for the National Nuclear Security Administration.  The plant is responsible for 85 percent of the components for all US nuclear weapons.

On this edition of Tell Somebody  you'll hear sounds from the protest, a conversation with Ralph Hutchison, coordinator for the Oak Ridge (TN) Environmental Peace Alliance, and from two of those arrested at the protest- Felice Cohen-Joppa and Jerry Zawada, both from Arizona.
