Kansas City, MO – Heavy equipment has started moving earth for the nearly $700 Million nuclear weapon parts plant in south Kansas City. Ground was broken this morning near the former Richards-Gebauer Air Force Base at Highway 150 and Botts Road. The complex is owned by the National Nuclear Security Administration.

Protestors walked and stood close to the job site where 25 hundred people are expected to work. Seven protestors were arrested and booked for disorderly conduct, accused of walking into the path of a VIP bus.
