Father Daniel Berrigan - Presente!

By Louis De Benedette

[Printer-Friendly Version]

Father Dan energized the movement against the Vietnam war. He was a member of the Catonsville 9, that burned draft files with homemade napalm in 1969.

Howard Zinn and Father Dan flew to Hanoi and brought home three US pilots, but not without observing the US bombing.

Father Dan came to our VVAW anniversaries in New York. He thought highly of VVAW, as many of us did of him.

Father Dan was a member of the Plowshares 8, which hammered on nuclear shrouds at the plant in King of Prussia, PA.

Father Dan never ceased resisting evil.

He died April 30, 2016. He was 94.

His brothers Philip and Jerry have also died.

Presente! Daniel, Philip, and Jerry.



Louis DeBenedette is a longtime activist and member of VVAW. He lives in Ithaca, NY.
