BLOOD ON THE TRACKS WITH BRIAN WILLSON

  Broadcast in Politics

Call in to speak with the host

(760) 542-3900

Join us on SFPI Radio on July 7 at 8 AM PST/ 11 AM EST when our very special guest will be antiwar hero Brian Willson, author of Blood on the Tracks, the autobiography of his transformation from rabid anticommunist to dedicated antiwar activist.

Perhaps most famous for losing his legs in a murder attempt by the US military in response to his blocking the tracks at a Naval Ordinance station from which weapons were transferred to fight illegal wars against democratic governments in Honduras and other South and Central American nations, his is a story that is much richer.

Brian was born on the Fourth of July to a father who was a racist member of the John Birch Society and a "Christian" fundamentalist. His early career plans included FBI agent, pastor and professional athlete. His transformation to an antiwar activist was sparked by his experience of the harsh realities of war for corporate Empire.

These awakened him to the realization that we are all one People, connected spiritually and physically to one another by unbreakable bonds. His understanding of our interdependence and the interreelated problems mnacing human "civilization" underlie the principles that guide his work and his personal life.



SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace in every nation.
