Happy new year Daniel Berrigan

“A Moral Giant”: A Democracy Now! Special on the Life & Legacy of Father Daniel Berrigan


Watch our full interview with close friends and the niece of the legendary antiwar priest, Father Daniel Berrigan, as we remember his life and legacy. He died on April 30, just short of his 95th birthday. Berrigan was a poet, pacifist, educator, social activist, playwright and lifelong resister to what he called “American military imperialism.” 

We speak with Frida Berrigan, a longtime peace activist who writes a regular column for Waging Nonviolence. We are also joined by John Dear, a Catholic priest and longtime peace activist who is Berrigan’s literary executor and the editor of five books of his writings; and Bill Quigley, one of Daniel Berrigan’s attorneys, who is a professor and director of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice, and the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center at Loyola University.
