Kansas City, Thursday March 1, 2011 a group of concerned citizens gathered at the Cherith Brook Community House (A Catholic Worker House) to educate and plan protests against the building of nuclear warheads in Kansas City. 

Dorothy Day was the matriarch of an anarchist movement in the earlier part of the twentieth century. She began what is known as the catholic worker movement. The goal was to gather people of faith in opposition to this issue. It was refreshing to see spiritual people whose religion was not telling them to murder their neighbor and submit. Civil disobedience was renamed Gospel Obedience by Nick Pickrell one of the community members who was present. Members of Catholic Worker houses as well as PeaceWorks and Ann Suellentrop who is associated with NukeWatch.org.

The night started off with a presentation from Maurice Copeland a former employee of the Kansas City Honeywell facility in question. He worked at the Bannister complex for over 30 years and has spent the last decade or more as an outspoken whistle-blower against what has and is going on in Kansas City. He told a tale of what some would call pure capitalism or the right libertarian might refer to as corporatism - workers mistreated and placed in unsafe unhealthy conditions and exploited. The bill for the whole racket seems to be footed directly by the United States Empire in its effort to spend more and more money in its monopolized multi-billion dollar murder industry. The Kansas City Plant (KCP) is the most productive of the eight sites in the research and production complex of the Department of Energy’s semi-autonomous National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). KCP produces and/or procures 85% of all nuclear weapons components both by type and quantity.
