War resister Lillian Willoughby, 93

Lillian Willoughby passed away on the 15th. I didn't know about it until I saw the notice in the Inky today.

She was a member of the group I was in when I got arrested protesting the Iraq war in 2003. I paid my fine -- but she refused to, so she spent a week in jail the next year.

This is a loss for Philadelphia.
