Prison Show 6 - for Jessica Reznicek
/

Canon Petero Sabune and Frank Cordaro joined me for an excellent discussion focusing on the impending incarceration of climate activist Jessica Reznicek. I opened with my rendition of Water to Fire, a song by Aliza Hava that seemed especially appropriate for this topic. I then played Jess’s July 2 interview with Des Moines Local Channel 5 News as an introduction to her situation.

Frank and Petero each led a segment of the show and we talked about Jess as a hero in the tradition of Dorothy Day, the Berrigans, or the Plowshares Movement. We looked at the divide-and-conquer strategy utilized by prosecutors worldwide and the Terrorist Enhancement Act which was improperly applied in this case.
