Interview: Physician-activist Charlie Clements to speak in Burlington

Print More

Dr. Charlie Clements is well-known in the peace activist community. A former president of Physicians for Social Responsibility, he’s led congressional fact-finding missions to Central America and is the recipient of several human rights awards. But Dr. Clements is also well-versed in the ways of war. He was a combat pilot in Vietnam and what he saw there led him to write the book, “Witness to War” which became the basis for the Academy Award winning documentary of the same name. Dr. Clements was recently named president of the Unitarian-Universalist Service Committee. Mitch Wertlieb talks with Clements about the speech he’ll be giving at the First Unitarian-Universalist Society in Burlington this Sunday.
