Katharine Gun

Katharine Gun - 'I have only ever followed my conscience'
"Gun's conspicuous bravery speaks louder than any rhetoric possibly could. Her actions confront Britons and Americans alike with difficult choices: to what extent is the “special relationship” between the two countries to be based on democracy or duplicity?" - Norman Solomon ("For telling the truth")

"I have no regrets and I would do it again." (Katharine Gun, 25 February 2004)

"I'm just baffled in the 21st century we as human beings are still dropping bombs on each other as a means to resolve issues." (Katharine Gun, 25 February 2004)
