The public is invited to speak out for or against a new nuclear weapons complex proposed by the National Nuclear Security Administration at a public hearing Tuesday.

Marylia Kelley with Tri-Valley C.A.R.E.s calls the new plan, dubbed "complex transformation," a thin disguise to build new nuclear weapons.

"Their plan is to rebuild and modernize about 25 million square feet of nuclear weapons factories across the country," said Kelley, who will host a table at Tuesday's meeting. "Do people want to see a nuclear weapons complex that's rebuilt and turns out new nuclear weapons, or do we want to see the U.S. move forward in a more peaceful direction? The issues at stake are very important issues."
