Last Friday Video and Discussion, April 29th, 7pm

The Nuns, the Priests, and the Bombs

documentary via Zoom, April 29, 2022, 7:00 pm

We’ll watch the documentary “The Nuns, the Priests, and the Bombs” via Zoom. This is about nuns and priests breaking into the storage facility for radioactive elements at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. These elements are the ingredients from which nuclear bombs are made and the facility is intended to be one of the most secure sites in the nation. The activists intention was both to call attention to these obscenely destructive materials in the center of our country, and to show that the security of these materials was not as good as has been advertised. The ease with which they got into the site and the length of time they had to wait to be discovered and arrested was quite embarrassing to the officials in charge of the facility. You can see the trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL6qxsvo_qc. More information and a synopsis can be found at http://www.passionriver.com/the-nuns-the-priests-and-the-bombs.html. The movie is 1 hour and 27 minutes long and we will have time for discussion afterward.
