Turning Weapons of War into Tools of Peace. A series that explores active engage- ment, ingenuity, civil disobedience and non-violence. Episode 1: Outlaw and under- ground: a question of habit. They will turn their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks; the nations will no longer raise swords against the na- tions or learn war. In 1968, in Catonsville, Maryland, nine Catholic activists, including two priests and brothers, Philip and Dan Berrigan, stole 378 draft files and burned them with homemade napalm. In 1970, the brothers were sentenced to prison terms of up to three years. Father Dan fled.
