A Woman Priest, Janice Sevre Duszynska ARCWP Witnesses Against Torture and Against War with Iran

Janice Sevre Duzynska ARCWP witnesses against torture and war

Yesterday Max and I joined Witness Against Torture in Lafayette Park and later in front of the nearby Trump Hotel. 

The hideous and unconscionable Guantanamo Prison has now been around for 19 years. Men still remain imprisoned there despite being legally released by Obama years ago. The state of their soul-life is released through art and poetry. Frank of the Peace Poets read a prisoner’s poem to us in front of Trump’s Hotel. Like others I’ve read written by men who have been tortured and exiled in the Guantanamo Gulag, the writer’s voice takes us to depths and heights of consciousness akin to Wordsworth in “Ode on Intimations of Immortality.”

The last two photos are from a week ago near downtown Baltimore and St. Vincent de Paul where some of the homeless enjoy a
homemade meal Friday evenings. About 50 folks gathered to say “NO War with Iran!”

The anti-war back of shirt display was put together by a veteran for peace who had been in Afghanistan. We were touched by his story and invited him to witness for peace with us at JHU on Tuesday eve
to end the annual government-funded $1 billion drone research 

program conducted by their Applied Physics Research Lab.
