Documentary - On the Tracks

 

A small group of protesters got arrested at a nuclear bomb factory near Denver, Colorado in 1978. No one expected the 1 day demonstration would keep going. Or that Daniel Ellsberg, Allen Ginsberg, and 15,000 people would show up. A young photographer named Joseph Daniel captured these iconic images of the year-long occupation, the protesters blocking trains, and police arresting hundreds of people. The “Truth Force” protests drew international attention to the danger of the Nuclear Arms Race.

Frontline PBS episode on the secrets of Rocky Flats bomb factory. Many of the characters involved are still fighting for the truth to be revealed. The bomb factory has since been decommissioned and transfered to the Fish and Wildlife Service as a wildlife refuge. Many people who are privy to the plants history are concerned over the Fish and Wildlife's plan to open the refuge to the public. Since the transfer of the land as a wildlife refuge the history of the plant has been largely forgotten and several housing developments are springing up around the highly contaminated site.

"Secrets of a Bomb Factory," originally aired on Oct. 26, 1993. "Wes McKinley didn't know what he was getting into when, in 1990, he was chosen as foreman of a special grand jury investigating potential crimes at the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant in Colorado. But what McKinley and the other grand jurors learned in their two-and-one-half years of listening to testimony and examining other evidence disturbed them enough to risk prosecution themselves by going public. FRONTLINE examines what the grand jury learned and what led to their rebellion."
