Why I Went To Prison For a Nuclear-Free World

 
Sister-Megan-Rice“Our ‘crime’ was to draw attention to the criminality of the 70-year-old nuclear industry itself and to the unconscionable fact that the U.S. spends more on nuclear weapons than on education, health, transportation, and disaster relief combined.”
– Keynote speaker Sister Megan Rice, an anti-nuclear activist and Roman Catholic Religious Sister of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.
