Sonia Sanchez Trial Today

Important and renowned poet/activist Sonia Sanchez’ trial in Philadelphia for a past arrest took place this morning. Sonia Sanchez and other protesters from Grannies for Peace were arrested on June 28 at a downtown Philadelphia Armed Forces Recruiting Center where they refused to leave after they tried to enlist, but were rejected because of their age.

Go to Professor Pearson’s blog for more information and to hear a podcast of Grannie Sanchez explaining why peace is even more necessary now than ever.
