Philip Berrigan

Philip Berrigan (author page at Amazon), a 76-year-old former Josephite priest and longtime activist, was, like his brother Daniel, a member of the Cantonsville Nine. He is currently serving a thirty-month sentence for “malicious destruction of property” in connection with a protest in December 1999 during which Berrigan and the three other members (Susan Crane, Steve Kelly SJ, and Elizabeth Walz) of “Plowshares vs. Depleted Uranium” hammered and poured blood on two U.S.A-10 “Warthog” fighter planes, the kind they believed was responsible for firing ninety-five percent of the depleted uranium in the war against Iraq and were used extensively against the people of former Yugoslavia, resulting in radioactive poisoning. His autobiography, Fighting the Lamb's War: Skirmishes with the American Empire, was published in September 1996 by Common Courage Press. (2001).
