Eight women shut down Vermont Yankee briefly on August 6, 2013

There is report today in the enews that eight women briefly shut down Vermont Yankee:

The United States is the only nation in the world to have employed atomic weapons, a practice continued today with US weapons tipped with depleted uranium
