A Report Back from Afghanistan by Brian Terrell
Brian Terrell of Maloy, Iowa, visited Afghanistan for three weeks in December as part of a delegation sponsored by Voices for Creative Nonviolence and the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers. In January, Brian and 13 others were convicted of trespass in a Las Vegas court for their protest at Creech Air Force Base, from where unmanned robotic “drone” aerial raids on Afghanistan are controlled.
Brian is a long-time Catholic Worker and a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence.
Iowa based videographer Rodger Routh interviewed Brian before his travels and produced two videos on:
