According to the Federal Government, there are over 900 toxins remaining on the grounds of the Bannister Federal Complex due to the activities of the Allied/Bendix/Honeywell weapons plant. Over 154 workers have died and countless others are sick from working, not only at the weapons plant, but the other Federal Agencies housed at that complex over the years such as DFAS, GSA, and the IRS.
On Saturday, May 31st, about sixty activists gathered at the Bannister Federal Complex to protest the excessive toxins. Two of them took their resistance to the next level by crossing the line onto the property and being arrested. We’ll hear their statements as they crossed the line and hear from a former employee at the plant and others.
