Going to Jail for All the Right Reasons

Updated: Sep 7


Long before he was tour manager for The Rolling Stones and The Grateful Dead, Boomer Sam Cutler was a proponent of non-violent, direct action against the threat of nuclear weapons.


Tune into this fascinating episode where Sam describes how he was water cannoned off a submarine and thrown into prison with a murderer as a cell-mate for participation in a protest against nuclear weapons. Sam also recalls how he was the personal 'bodyguard' to the famous writer, philosopher and social critic Lord Bertrand Russell, an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament.


To this day, Sam remains strongly opposed to nuclear weapons, committed to nonviolence and opposed to war, and echoes John Lennon's immortal words: "give peace a chance".
