Discussion with Cindy Sheehan on the 10th anniversary of the US War on Iraq & her latest project: Tour de Peace.
David Swanson writes:
“Between April 4 and July 3, the entire country (and the other 96% of humanity too) is invited to join in a bicycle ride from California to Washington, D.C. You can join as a bicycler or as a sponsor.
This won't be a ride to raise awareness about cruelty to animals, but it will raise awareness about war -- by many measures the greatest destroyer of the natural environment we have, as well as consisting first and foremost of the mass killing of that peculiar animal we're all rather fond of: the homo sapiens.
This won't be a ride to raise money for cancer research, but it will raise money for the campaign to abolish war -- a carcinogen if the people of Fallujah ever saw one.”
Then, Jeremy Varon, a representative of Witness Against Torture (witnesstorture.org) joined us to discuss the huge hunger strike happening right now at Guantanamo and our response to it. See: HUNGER STRIKE AT GUANTANAMO: Emergency Response & Call to Action.

Two days after the 2012 election, Glen Ford (BlackAgendaReport.com) and Debra Sweet (Director of World Can't Wait) joined Cindy Sheehan for a discussion of the presidential election and "where do we, as people of Peace and Justice go from there?"
Gregory Koger, activist and videographer from Chicago joined us for a special conversation on his case, his activism as a former prisoner struggling against all forms of injustice, and the "criminal justice" system which has cruelly persecuted him for years now. Find out more about his conviction and add your support to a statement which will be delivered to Cook County officials very soon. Gregory has said,
"...outrages happened in a political prosecution in my case, but they happen on a daily basis to millions of people herded through the courts into the United States’ historically unprecedented system of mass incarceration. Our struggle to defeat these charges has been a small part of the broader struggle against this oppressive system that inflicts monumental suffering on the people, here and around the world."
Also: listen to Gregory interviewed on the Michael Slate show, which aired on KPFK-LA on 11/23/12.
