Members of CPT Northern Indiana’s Depleted Uranium weapons
project are taking soil samples from outside the Aerojet DU plant in
Jonesborough, TN for testing. Activists’ efforts have prompted the
closing of four U.S. DU plants in recent years. Aerojet is the
Pentagon’s largest supplier of DU weapons, producing 60 percent of
all DU Penetrator bullets. The project began in March 2006 as a CPT
Northern Indiana Regional Group effort dedicated to stopping DU
weapons production. www.stop-du.org.
Settler violence hasn’t stopped; in fact, it’s increased since the start of COVID-19.
