From the Footprints for Peace organization:
People from around the world are converging at the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Complex in Oak Ridge on Friday to begin a 700-mile walk for peace.
The protest, called International Footprints for Peace, will span three months and trek through six states.
Marcus Atkinson, the walk's organizer, says it will bring attention to all aspects of the nuclear industry and will demand progress on negotiations to create a nuclear-weapons-free world.
