In Nuclear Protest Blooms Again at Lab, Diana Walsh interviews Tara Dorabji for the San Francisco Chronicle on August 11, 2003.
It’s been two decades since the largest anti-nuclear protests took place outside Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
On Sunday, protesters returned, and returned strong. Revitalized by anti- war demonstrations this spring, an estimated 1,000 people joined hands to protest the lab’s role in producing new-generation nuclear warheads.
“Nuclear weapons didn’t go away, they just went off the public radar,” said Tara Dorabji, who helped organize the protest with a local organization that calls itself Tri-Valley CAREs.
