TRANSFORM NOW! Sr. Megan, Michael, Greg: NDE Stands In Solidarity With You.
NDE Signed-On and YOU CAN TOO Sign-On to the letter to the TNP-Court-Case Judge

Most of the items on this page are being moved to the 2014 Y-12 webpage

Michael Walli (Inmate #4444), Sr. Megan (Inmate #22100) & Gregory Boertje-Obed (Inmate #22090)

In July, 2012 three pacifist elders attempted to disarm the nuclear systems of Tennessee. In the process, they disarmed themselves and exposed the naked agression of the Empire. One of the three (Sr. Megan Rice) is a former employee of NDE. Another of the three (Mike Walli) is a former resident of our Sts. Francis Y Clare offices in Las Vegas.

"Transform Now Plowshares" (TNP) is the name of their group. You can stay updated with this issue via the TNP website.


You can find out how to contact the TNP activists via their webpage, which also has information on how to advocate for their swift release--if you can write to the Judge prior to January 20th, which is prior to their sentencing on January 28th.

Thank you, dear Sister Megan, Mike & Greg!
