Have you been to jail for justice, recently?

Peace activist John Dear to speak here today: "The Rev. John Dear, a peace activist and Jesuit priest, will discuss his book 'A Persistent Peace' today at 7 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, South Side.
He has been arrested 75 times for protests, but most recently made news because a former Guantanamo Bay prosecutor sought Father Dear's counsel before resigning over concerns about the fairness of the war crimes tribunals there.
A song title from Anne Feeney is, "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?"
