SPECIAL: Newly freed 85-year old nun, Sister Megan Rice, speaks at length about the peaceful 2012 Transform Now Plowshares protest action against the Y-12 nuclear facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, which resulted in her being charged with sabotage and sentenced to almost three years in prison. Now out of prison pending a re-sentencing hearing, she and co-defendants Gregory Boertje-Obed, 60, and Michael Walli, 68, both of whom were sentenced to over five years in prison, speak at length with Nuclear Hotseat’s Libbe HaLevy on what they did, why they did it, what they faced as a result, and what’s next. It’s not over yet. Stunning information from three genuine heroes of our movement in three separate interviews – a full-length Nuclear Hotseat Exclusive!
