Carl Kabat, Catholic Priest & Anti-Nuclear Activist, Dies at 88

HeadlineAug 22, 2022

The longtime anti-nuclear activist and Catholic priest Carl Kabat has died at the age of 88. In 1980, he took part in the first Plowshares action when he, along with Dan and Phil Berrigan and others, broke into a General Electric missile plant in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. They hammered on missile nose cones, damaging them beyond repair, and poured their blood on the damaged parts. Kabat would go on to spend over 17 years in prison for his anti-nuclear activism.
