Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Philip Berrigan and Ploughshrares Action

Listen

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.
