More about Susan and her work

  In this photo taken a a decade ago, Susan had just been released from the Alameda county jail in Santa Rita, California.

On December 19, 1999, Susan and three others were arrested for attempting to "disarm" two A-10 Thunderbolt planes at the Air National Guard Base in Essex, Maryland.

At the trial on March 21- 22, 2000, the judge refused to let the jury hear expert witnesses about the dangers of the depleted uranium used by the A-10 "Warthog." Susan and friends called the trial a sham and refused to participate further. The jury found the defendants guilty of some of the charges.

We have a letter from Susan printed in the Ukiah Daily Journal on April 29, 2000. Susan, writing from Maryland State Prison, explains why she is willing to take a stand against the use of depleted uranium by the U.S. military.

More information about the action, the trial and the sentencing.

Susan's background:
Once a situationist. Now a Christian.

Other Christian perspectives: Two essays by Wendell Berry.

Peaceableness Toward Enemies:
Written in 1991 during the Gulf War, this is a succinct critique
and a minimum platform for the future, wouldn't you agree?
and
Christianity and the Survival of Creation:
This essay may challenge those of us who are knee jerk agnostics
and, maybe, born-again Christians and Catholics as well.
