Solidarity news and reflections of interest to the Passionist Family
rtin Newell has previously spent time in prison after activism with the Plowshares movement, a Christian pacifist and nuclear disarmament group. Martin talks about peace-making and why taking action that can lead to a prison sentence is an appropriate and faithful thing for Christians to do in times of crisis. In the second part, we hear further reflections from Martin on the biblical rationale for risking prison time, and hear from him and some friends about real lived experiences of (brief) prison sentences. Each segment is approximately 30 minutes.
