Activism and Faith – Jay O’Hara
Living Like the World is Ending: Blocking Coal Ships and a Living Faith
In May 2013, Jay O’Hara and Ken Ward blockaded a shipment of 40,000 tons of coal to Brayton Point power station using a lobster boat. In this presentation and Q&A, O’Hara will discuss their action and its aftermath, including their arrest and trial. Bring your questions about direct action, faith-based activism, and environmental activism for the Q&A!
