[Oak Ridge, Tennessee] Priests and nuns, atheists, anarchist and one clown were among the 23 arrested by the State and 13 by the Federal Government for nonviolently resisting Nuclear Weapons at Y-12 this morning.
Those facing State charges were arrested for obstructing the road way, one for failing to obey a police officer and Federal charges are for trespassing.
Before the nonviolent action that lead to the arrests the crowd made commitments to bear witness every Sunday at 5:55 PM at the site for a vigil and sing Keep Your Eyes on the Prize and the names of all who offered themselves against the insanity of nuclear war will be named out-loud until every one of them has been freed.
