Philip Berrigan

Recommended Posts

Can't sleep and felt like posting something on here ..

 

This guy was fucking amazing.

 

If you don't know, berrigan was a WWII vet who later became a priest. A few of the things he did include burning draft cards with napalm during vietnam, dumping blood on selective service records in the baltimore customs house, damaging warheads in nuclear facilities, teaching a deep-south all-black school in the 50s & 60s, confronting and becoming excommunicated by the catholic church, and spending over a decade in prison for his different protests. He died sometime last year.

 

If he could rap he would've been legendary.

Here's where the photo's from: http://www.internationalanswer.org/berriga.../statement.html

 

Most of the people on here would be bored reading about him, but he was ill nonetheless. Google>Philip Berrigan = lots of other links.

Howard Zinn has written a lot about him.

 

 

 

The situationists ... weren't they an anarchist group of some sort, involved in art or something?
