Thirty-seven anti-nuclear activists were arrested July 5 at the entrance to the Nuclear Weapons Plant outside Oak Ridge, Tenn.
Twenty-three people were arrested for blocking the highway entrance to the plant with a banner inscribed with "Independence From Nuclear Terrorism," while 14 others went under the barbed wire fence and nonviolently entered the property.
The former group faces state "obstruction of highway" charges, a misdemeanor; the latter group faces federal trespass charges. This more serious charge can result in up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000.
