[Tennessee]-Today, the third of The Y-12 Thirteen were sentenced.

They were arrested on 5 July 2010 after crossing through the thin strands of barbed wire at the Y-12 Oak Ridge, nuclear weapons site in Tennessee and charged with trespassing.

Their motives were fueled by faith/conscience in protest of the continued and soon to be expanded production of Hydrogen Bomb materials at the Y-12 Complex.

Y-12 produced the Uranium used to make the Atom Bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

International Law and treaties signed by the American Government prohibit such production and our obligations under the NPT require the U.S. to dismantle its nuclear arsenal; not refurbish or modernize it.

The Nuremberg Principles established at the end of WWII were used to prosecute German citizens for failing to do what the Y-12 nuclear resisters did: object to the criminal activities of their country!


"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Genius will not. Education will not. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

Once upon a time, there was an old widow, who lived in a certain town with a judge who cared nothing about justice, people or God. But an old widowed crone kept coming to him with her plea, "Grant me justice against my adversary."

The judge ignored her until she became such a PIA [pain in the ass] he finally muttered to himself, "Even though I don't fear God or care a hoot about this old crone, she has become such a PIA, I will give into her, just to get her to leave me alone!" [Paraphrased from a story Jesus told in Luke 18 1-5]

When it comes to confronting hypocrites in high places and the injustices they commit, I am a royal PIA.

I also was an eyewitness to that day when thirteen persistent nonviolent nuclear resisters were arrested at the Y-12 Oak Ridge, nuclear weapons site in Tennessee.

Just prior to the arrests The Declaration of Independence from Nuclear Weapons at Y-12, was read:

The Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 indicted a government that engaged in barbaric conduct contrary to the laws of Humanity that included "works of death, destruction and tyranny unparalleled in the most barbaric ages" until the Age of Now!

Current Law requires an end to all planning, preparation, production, threat, or use of nuclear weapons and we the people have gathered here today, July 4, 2010 at Y-12 to demand this Government adhere to the fundamental rules and principles of Humanitarian Law.

These rules and principles require that civilians never be the object of attack. Consequently we must never use weapons that are incapable of distinguishing between civilians and military targets.

Whereas, all W-76 and W-76-1 thermonuclear secondaries produced at Y-12 are designed and produced to unleash 100 KT of uncontrollable and indiscriminate heat, blast and radiation, six times more than the Hiroshima Bomb,
