Arun Gandhi's Thought

I would like to discuss two quotes from Arund Gandhi:



Arun Gandhi said: "You can quote me as saying Mahatma Gandhi would disagree with the Plowshares actions because they employ tactics of secrecy and destruction of property. I also think locking up the most courageous and devoted peace leaders for long prison terms is a way of weakening the peace movement.

Meanwhile, our friend Bjorn has posted two links on the same discussion.

Hi William ~ Did I get back to you? Thought I did, but today has been filled with distractions. Anyway, I have fond memories and great respect for the Berrigans. War resistance is a big tent. Personally, I have no problem with property damage in an attempt to save lives. ~ Chris
