I shall be released!

On 16 May, the Transform Now Plowshares three were released from prison after an appeals court in Cincinnati struck down their 2013 sabotage convictions and ordered resentencing on their remaining conviction.

The court said sister Megan Rice (85), Michael Walli (66), and Greg Boertje-Obed (59), were still guilty of damaging government property at the Y-12 national security complex. The three entered the Oak Ridge, Tennessee, plant in 2012 to protest against a planned multi-billion-dollar nuclear bomb factory. More info:
