The Woman Reborn

from by Gerry Hannah



The Woman Reborn:

This is the song that I did actually write about Julie describing her betrayal of her friends at her sentencing appeal and the effect it had on her and everyone else. While her actions made me very angry, it was impossible for me to not feel pity toward her at the same time. I knew that she had felt trapped in a situation she couldn’t face and that she had been pressured by the authorities into doing what she did. Of all the things that happened to me as a result of being in Direct Action, watching helplessly as my partner became someone I didn’t know anymore was the hardest thing to deal with.
