#47 - Julie Brown, friend of Jess Reznicek, Catholic Worker and Water Defender

November 6, 2021

Sean interviews Julie Brown, a long-time friend and fellow activist of Jessica Reznicek, having lived and served together at the Des Moines Catholic Worker.

Jess is well known for her many non-violent direct actions against the Dakota Access Pipeline which culminated in her sabotaging the pipeline's creation by unwelding pipes with oxy-acetylene torches and burning industrial construction equipment.

She has been labeled a "domestic terrorist" by the U.S. federal government and has recently begun serving an 8-year prison sentence.
