For oft-arrested priest, social justice calling carries a priceOn May 17, two anti-drone activists accepted the open invitation to the public and attended an open house at Volk Field, a military facility near Fort Douglas, Wisconsin, that trains soldiers to "pilot" Shadow drones. They were both arrested when in the middle of the tour they attempted to hand out leaflets encouraging readers to examine their attitudes about the use of drones in war and intelligence gathering. Father Jim Murphy, one of the arrestees, views his activism as an important part of his religion. “Faith is not just about getting to heaven,” Murphy said. “It’s also about transforming our world.” The Wisconsin State Journal, 6/29/14. Jim Murphy and Bonnie Block, the other arrestee, are members of the Wisconsin Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars, a WNPJ member group.

La Baguette Pays up After Picket

The Workers' Rights Center held a picket at La Baguette on the westside of Madison on Tuesday, June 3.  Two weeks ago, a former cook from the French bakery on the far west side, came to the WRC because his employer said he would not give him his last check because he didn't give two weeks' notice when he quit. When the WRC staff person called the business, the owner acknowledged that they were not paying the worker his last two weeks' pay because he did not give them enough notice.
