Martin Sheen's Uncommon Courage





Is Martin Sheen's aura ultraviolet

standing for peace, ever nonviolent.

With rare courage, 66 times arrested..

Through the years he's seldom rested.


“I went to jail for 11 days for disturbing the peace; I was trying to disturb the war.”  -Joan Baez-

Martin Sheen has been active in countless nonviolent acts of civil disobedience and arrested 66 times as he stood up for peace and against nuclear power, nuclear weapons testing, dangerous arms buildup, abuse of farmworkers, Canadian sealclubbing and other causes.  One is reminded of another nonviolent Martin, Dr. King, often arrested, to violence subjected.  Like Sheen, James Cromwell is another great actor, a vegan involved in protecting animals.. including sitins at fast food chains.

and informed description. Tufts broke dog legs in their labs. Johns Hopkins

developed a Blalock Press (by Dr Blalock) which tested how many pounds of

pressure dogs' bones could take before they broke, etc etc

A Quaker, she refused  to pay taxes. 60% was unpaid because it supported the viet nam war. IRS confiscated her box office and took out taxes at each performance. Joan.
