The Indomitable One

Die Unbeugsame

After nearly three years of incarceration, 85-year-old US nun and anti-nuclear activist Megan Rice has recently been released from a New York prison. Together with two peace activists the nun broke into the national uranium enrichment facility Y-12 in Oak Ridge in 2012. With pacifist slogans sprayed on a uranium store, they wanted to demonstrate against nuclear energy and the production of nuclear weapons. Megan Rice, who hails from Manhattan, has been a member of the "Society of the Holy Child Jesus" since she was 18. From 1962 to 2004, she was a teacher in Nigeria and Ghana. As early as in the 1980s, she was active in the peace movement. She got arrested dozens of times during protest actions and imprisoned twice for half a year. For the sprightly nun, the Christian faith always has both dimensions: spirituality and political action.
