In memoriam Bill Mitchell, visionary co-founder of the Military Production Network, the predecessor to today’s Alliance for Nuclear Accountability. In his honor the Alliance has created the Bill Mitchell Next Generation Leadership Development Fund to attract and support youth in watchdogging the Department of Energy’s nuclear weapons complex.
Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, an ANA friend, wrote this piece remembering Bill, with an assist from ANA’s longtime consultant Bob Schaeffer. You can also read about Bill in the High Country News.
Ralph Hutchison of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance, a long-time ANA member, wrote this piece in remembrance of Bill.
Thank you Bill for your vision! We will continue to fight for cleanup, contractor accountability and a future world free of nuclear weapons. Cleanup, not bombs!
Some photos of Bill are below. But first, this video shows ANA’s work with a group of young people at the 2016 DC Days.
