Danice Bordett and Nanette Rainone interview former nun and one of the Catsonville 9, Marjorie Melville, in WBAI's studio on February 10, 1971. Melville and her husband wrote a book, "Whose Heavan, Whose Earth" (1971) which describes their experience with the Guatemalan revolutionaries. Mrs. Melville was recently released from jail (she and her husband were jailed for burning draft records in protest of the Vietnam War, husband still in jail). The focus of this interview is on her activism in Guatemala (she arrived there in 1954 when the CIA overthrew the government). Self-contained.
