About thirty people gathered in Carson City today to protest a Department of Energy weapons test.
Members of the Western Shoshone Defense Project and others walked from the Nevada Legislative building to the Governor's Mansion.
They are calling attention to Divine Strake, a proposed seven-hundred ton weapons test slated for the Nevada Test Site.
The group is worried the test will unsettle remnants from one-thousand nuclear weapons tests in the fifties and sixties.
The D.O.E suspended the test in June 2006 after tribe members filed suit. They are urging Governor Gibbons to call for an environmental impact statement.
