Dan Berrigan was an American Jesuit priest who protested the Vietnam War. He was part of the Catonsville Nine who made homemade napalm and used it to destroy nearly 400 draft files in a parking lot in Catonsville, MD. In 1980, with another group he helped found, the Plowshares, they broke into a GE plant in King of Prussia, PA and destroyed the nose cones of nuclear warheads.
