Y-12 protester trial gets underway

May 10, 2013

Jury selection begins May 6 in the trial of three nuclear protesters who broke into the Y-12 Nuclear Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee last summer.  The Department of Energy facility houses the nation's stockpile of highly-enriched uranium.   The break-in was significant in a lot of ways--not the least was the fact that one of the three trespassers was an 82-year-old nun.
