Round Table Discussion, London Catholic Worker  with Sr. Megan Rice and Paul Magno of TRANSFORM NOW PLOWSHARES

Megan is an 85-religious sister, a member of the Society of the Holy Child

“Three years ago, at 82, carrying a backpack and a deeply held conviction that the United States was breaking international law by quietly keeping up a multibillion-dollar nuclear weapons program, she
took part in a middle-of-the-night break-in to a high security nuclear facility in Tennessee [1] – an action that was later described [2] as the largest security breach in American atomic history.

Rice’s non-violent anti-nuclear action, which involved walking through a wooded hill for two hours in the dark, crawling underneath four fences that had been cut through, and avoiding patrol cars, resulted in her being sentenced to almost three years behind bars.” From The Guardian, July 2015,
