Sunday Sequence - PEACE, PRISONERS & POVERTY


This week on Sunday Sequence with Marie Louise Muir, Hillary Clinton roundly condemning the Wikileak disclosures that have severely embarassed the United States - but have the leaks potentially endangered world peace and should those responsible be severely punished? Also, the Republic's prison chaplains this week strongly criticised conditions in the country's jails. Have they over-reacted or are they just standing up for the human rights of the prisoners? We hear from the author of an important new book who argues that the West's counter-terrorism strategy is counter-productive. Plus, with Christmas less than three weeks away we report on a Church initiative to highlight the plight of the poor amid one of deepest recessions in memory.
