On Flashpoints, remembering the life of human rights leader and liberation theologist, Father Jean Juste, and Helen Caldicott speaks about the nuclear threat.

Revolutionary Haitian priest Father Jean-Juste died on May 27th at the age of 62. In jail and out, he preached liberation of the poor, release of prisoners, human rights for all, and a fair distribution of wealth. He constantly challenged both the powers of Haiti and the US to stop killing, starving and imprisoning the poor. He slept on the floor of his church, St. Claire, which provided meals to thousands of starving children and adults every week. Father Gerry will be missed but not forgotten by the Haitian people, and by all who embrace true democracy and justice throughout the world.
