Convictions: Prisoners of Conscience
Why risk your freedom?
Convictions: Prisoners of Conscience focuses on some of the hundreds of SOA protesters who collectively have served close to 90 years in prison for non-violent civil disobedience—some receiving sentences as long as 18 months and fines up to $10,000.
They give up their freedom as a matter of conscience and in the hope that doing time in federal prison will call attention in their home communities—and in Congress—to the grassroots campaign to shut the school.
