War & Peace & War

Robin Anderson spoke on a panel, "Christians in a Warmaking State: Fighting for Peace in Vietnam and Iraq," at Boston College last week 0n the 40th anniversary of the trial of the Catonsville Nine. Led by Catholic priests Daniel Berrigan, S.J., and his brother, Rev. Philip Berrigan, the Catonsville peace activists sparked movements for civil disobedience against the U.S. invasion of Vietnam and are a source of inspiration to activists seeking to end the war in Iraq.

Andersen, director of the the Peace & Justice Studies Program at Fordham, is co-editor of the Berrigan play, The Trial of the Catonsville Nine.
