2/29/2012 First Person Radio

Listen in as Laura Waterman Wittstock and Miguel Vargas talk to Bill Tilton about the life and times of Marv Davidov. A celebration of the life of Davidov, founder of the Honeywell Project, will take place March 10th at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. From Wikipedia: " In 1987 Honeywell purchased land in the Black Hills of South Dakota with a plan of creating {a} testing site there. Honeywell Project members worked in Minneapolis to support a group of white ranchers and Native Americans that called themselves the "Cowboy and Indian Alliance" or "CIA". The Honeywell Project reasoned that if Honeywell could not find a place to reliably test its weapons it would be unable to manufacture weapons of sufficient quality to sell to the military. In the end Honeywell was unable to install its testing site anywhere and Honeywell converted the land into a sanctuary for wild horses." Tilton volunteered with and supported Davidov over several decades.
