From a prison in Pennsylvania, we now go to one in Maine where
anti-war activist Father Philip Berrigan is presently incarcerated in the
Cumberland County Jail.

Philip Berrigan, and his brother Daniel, rose to prominence more
than thirty years ago leading creative, non-violent resistance to the
Vietnam War. Both brothers have continued the anti-war tradition until this day. Philip was a founding member of the Ploughshares group, which organizes non-violent direct actions against first strike weaponry. He has spent more than seven years of his life in jail because of his anti-war activities.

GUEST:

FATHER PHILIP BERRIGAN, a leading anti-war activist and a
founding member of the international Ploughshares group, which
organizes non-violent direct action against first strike nuclear weaponry.
