Conviction

 

Three Dominican sisters saw it as their duty, mission, religious calling to break into a missile silo in Colorado, chant, pour their own blood and land in jail for their beliefs. For these women, bringing attention to the atrocities of nuclear weapons was a sacred act; for the U.S. government, it was something much different. The nuns trespassed on federal property and criticized our national defense. The religious right labeled them fanatics; the left called them Joans of Arc; and the justice system convicted them of sabotage and sentenced them each to several years in federal prison.
