We Are Standing Up to the Powers of the World

Liz McAlister

Speech given at National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance rally

Phil Berrigan would be 86 today. He disliked celebrations of his birthday. To give him a birthday gift meant using his birthday as the excuse to get something the community might need. But he'd so welcome the gift of this witness against weapons and war and the instruments of mass murder that you enact today. That kind of gift – he loved.
