Today, I am very privileged today to have Kathy Kelly as my guest. Kathy is the founding member of Voices in the Wilderness, and currently co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, and Kathy has just returned from Afghanistan. She is a major leader of the international peace movement. She spent eight months in prison for protesting the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia. Kathy’s trips to Iraq began back in 1991. In spite of the US embargo, she brought food and medical supplies to Iraq on an endless number of delegations. She’s also dedicated herself to the needs of the people of Afghanistan, especially the young and she has now just returned from that destroyed country. Kathy has also been nominated for the Nobel Prize many times.
Welcome, Kathy Kelly.
Kathy: Well, hello Blase. Thank you so much for being in touch with me.
Blase: It’s a pleasure. You have been making duvets or comforters for people that are freezing, right?
