Chris’ lifelong anti-war activism has included five years on the staff of the Central Committee for Conscientious Objectors (CCCO) in San Francisco.
“All our history gives confirmation to the view that liberty of conscience has a moral and social value which makes it worthy of preservation at the hands of the state.”
“War never solves anything – it accentuates any problem… There is no moral or humanitarian justification for it.”
“It was difficult being a conscientious objector in the 1940’s, but I felt I had to stick to my guns.”
“The conscientious objector is a revolutionary … he sacrifices his personal interests to the most important cause of working for the betterment of society.”
