December 30, 2013 – Segment 2

We’re joined for a special conversation with peace activist Kathy Kelly. She is a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence and a co-founder of Voices in the Wilderness, a campaign to end economic sanctions against Iraq. Kathy Kelly and her companions helped send over 70 delegations to Iraq, from 1996 to 2003, in open defiance of the economic sanctions. She lived in Iraq during the 2003 U.S. invasion and initial weeks of the U.S. Occupation. Kelly has been involved in numerous nonviolent campaigns to end war, some of which have involved lengthy imprisonment.  As a war tax refuser, she has refused all forms of federal income tax since 1981.
