Five protesters who crossed the property line May 28 in Kansas City, Mo., at the new nuclear weapons parts plant in Kansas City, Mo., come to trial Friday, Dec. 7. The five were arrested at the annual PeaceWorks rally and were soon released. The line-crossers will defend their action Dec. 6 at a public program and, addressing the judge the next day, during the trial.
During its fifth annual Memorial Day trek from the old nuclear weapons parts plant to the new plant, PeaceWorks-KC called for a nuke-free world. Henry Stoever kicked off the walk he initiated in 2012. “We are at war with ourselves,” he said, noting the deaths of many Bannister Federal Complex workers from the old plant’s contaminants.
"Why are we still making nuclear weapons, weapons of omnicide?"
