Vermont Pacifist Leaves Manchester, NH Halfway House by Arnie Albert, InDepthNH, July 30, 2021

MANCHESTER—When Martha Hennessy was released from a federal prison and transferred to an “adult residential re-entry” program in Manchester, it wasn’t her first trip to the Queen City or her first entanglement with the criminal legal system. Hennessy says her first arrest came in 1979, when she and a group of apple-pickers were arrested for an anti-nuclear protest at the office of Public Service Company, then the lead builder of the Seabrook nuclear plant.

You could call her a “recidivist,” but to label her a “violent recidivist,” as a federal judge has done, turns the truth upside down.
