About the Author
S. Brian Willson is a Viet Nam veteran and trained lawyer whose wartime experiences transformed him into a revolutionary nonviolent pacifist. He gained renown as a participant in a prominent 1986 fast, with three other veterans, on the steps of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. The fast was in response to funding of Reagan's Contra wars in Central America. One year later, on September 1, 1987, he was again thrust into the public eye when he was run over and nearly killed by a U.S. Navy Munitions train while engaging in a nonviolent blockade in protest of weapons shipments to El Salvador. On orders not to stop, the train was accelerating to more than three times its 5-mph speed limit at the moment of impact. Willson continues efforts to educate the public about the diabolical nature of U.S. imperialism while striving to "walk his talk" (on two prosthetic legs and a three-wheeled handcycle) by working toward a model of right livelihood including a simpler lifestyle.
