Anti-nuclear activists arrested during Honeywell plant protest

Protesters from as far away as Florida convened at the Honeywell plant construction site yesterday in south Kansas City. The protest was the culmination of a three-day gathering for the KC Nuclear Weapons Plant Conference.

The activists condemn the plant, which will replace one nearby and will be the first new nuclear weapons plant built in the United States in over 30 years. It will cost $4.8 billion, says the KC National Nuclear Security Administration/Honeywell Watch blog. The plant will manufacture non-nuclear parts for uber-nuclear weapons.
