They spilt their blood from baby bottles and hung banners calling for nuclear disarmament -- Martha Hennessy - Clare Grady - Mark Colville. We spoke at the end of theirday-long walk which started at Riverside Church where MLK had delivered his “3 Evils of Society” speech in 1967.Their walk was organized by the Kings Bay Plowshares 7 group, Ellen Grady and Anthony Donovan.
