Protestors arrested outside Honeywell Plant at Bannister Federal Complex

KANSAS CITY, Missouri - Police arrest four protesters outside the Honeywell Plant at the Bannister Federal Complex. The plant makes parts used in nuclear weapons.

Demonstrators say they are concerned citizens trying to shut down what they call the Kansas City "nuclear weapons plant."

Several protesters used their bodies to barricade the gates while chanting.

Many of the demonstrators hoped their nonviolent demonstration would help abolish nuclear weapons all together. Others simply want the government to protect the citizens who build them.

"So face up to the fact that in order to produce nuclear weapons, you are going to have to contaminate your people and your cities,” protestor Maurice Copeland said.

The group is planning another action on Aug. 16.
