[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!

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]
