"I heartily disagree with this court that Y12's production of nuclear bombs does not equate to imminent nuclear war. I can tell you about the women I met in the jails who lost family members from cancer after exposure to radiation while working at Y12. The government pays $150,000 to those with cancer or to their family after a death, if they can prove Y12's liability. Thousands of people are dead or dying from weapons production. How many deaths does it take to convince the courts that Y12 is killing its own in a nuclear war? How many does it take to name it a crime?"
"It doesn't matter what my sentence is. If I am returned to jail, I'll expose more crimes. If I am set free, I'll expose more crimes." 
"If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack...And never, never, never, never, ever, never give up." - Sir Winston Churchill
In 1987, Israeli Nuclear Resister, Mordechai Vanunu wrote from his windowless tomb sized jail cell that held him captive for 18 years for objecting to the criminal activities of his country:
"No government, not even
the most democratic, can force us to live under this threat. No state in the
world can offer any kind of security against this menace of a nuclear
holocaust, or guarantee to prevent it.
"When governments develop nuclear weapons they are violating the basic rights of their citizens, the basic right not to live under constant threat of annihilation." 
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. submitted, "that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law."
