On the 62nd Anniversary of the Atomic Bomb
Christian Peacemaker Team says
Alliant Techsystems Corporate Headquarters
Edina, Minnesota
August 6, 2007
The Christian Peacemakers Team (CPT) conducts a yearly month-long training in Chicago for members. This international group of trained peacemakers traveled to Minnesota as part of a focus on depleted uranium and nonviolent resistance. They performed a public witness outside the headquarters of the Department of Defense's largest supplier of depleted uranium munitions, Alliant Techsystems. While no manufacturing takes place at this site, as the corporate headquarters, all decisions are made here. AlliantACTION provided assistance and support in solidarity with their witness on Hiroshima Day.
