An outspoken critic of the American military interventions for decades, Blase
Bonpane is a former Maryknoll priest who has been director of the Office of the
Americas since 1983. In this archival video from 1991, Bonpane made the case for
the U.S. as a militaristic society. It was originally shown on THE 90’s series on PBS
and shot by Nancy Cain and Jody Procter.
At 87, Bonpane is still fighting for peace through his work writing books and on KPFK
radio in Los Angeles.
This video was shot 25 years ago, but it is startlingly relevant in 2016.
