I am a peace writer and activist.I have just returned from visiting the Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul, a peace delegation and solidarity visit through Voices for Creative Nonviolence UK
In 2005 I became involved with the London Catholic Worker in its work of hospitality and faith-based nonviolent resistance. I have taken part in nonviolent direct action, to the point of arrest and conviction, against nuclear weapons, the use of weaponised drones and the DSEI arms fair.
Recently I have returned from staying at Maria Skobtsova House in Calais, France, where I joined the community in their work of visiting and offering hospitality to refugees from the ‘jungle’ camp, daily prayer and household chores.
I have been part of the London Catholic Worker for nearly ten years. All views my own.
