“Solidarity work against the occupations in Iraq and in Palestine” at Barack Obama’s official Web site. Note that Barackobama.com belongs to Obama’s campaign, and Obama has total editorial control over this domain. He can decide what material is and is not suitable for posting there. Given the nature of other material that has been there for a long time, we assume he has no problem with this.
Wheels of Justice will roll into town this coming week. The educational tour in a bio-diesel bus always includes speakers who can talk about their grass-roots solidarity work against the occupations in Iraq and in Palestine. There are five pages of brief bio’s of activists involved at <http://www.justicewheels.org/> – among them are Iraq Veterans Against the War founding member Kelly Dougherty, Kathy Kelly of Voices in the Wilderness, Anna Baltzer and Joe Carr.
Coming to Utah next week are Ed Kinane who was in Iraq most of 2003 – before, during and after the U.S. invasion – and journalist Mark Turner who just returned from nine months in the West Bank of occupied Palestine. Hannah Mermelstein takes Mark’s place after Tuesday (read their activist bio’s at the justicewheels website, excerpts are below).
