Recently Democracy Now! interviewed anti-nuclear activist Philip Berrigan currently in a Virginia prison for anti-nuclear activism. Berrigan is one of the founders of the Plowshares Movement taking its inspiration from the Biblical prophet Isaiah calling people to beat swords into plowshares.

Philip Berrigan has been at the center of many trials in his more than 30 years as an activist and may be in the middle of yet another.
