Watch Video from Spring Rising Teach-Ins

World Can't Wait | March 23, 2015

Spring Rising held a six-part Teach-In last week in Washington.  We're going to release videos over the next couple of weeks.  Here to give you the flavor, is a dramatic talk by Raed Jarrar, who is of Iraqi and Palestinian descent, as he says, from Sunni and Shiite parents, making him a “Sushi.” Raed works for the American Friends Service Committee as Policy Impact Coordinator.

Torture, America's Shame

Why we won't give this up:



This song was written and performed by Joan Wile.

Johina Aamer - "What have you done in the last 11 years?"

For Johina Aamer, her brothers and her mother, the technical aspects of Shaker Aamer's case come second to their daily worry: they have not been with Shaker for 11 years - soon to be 12 years. Everything else becomes peripheral to this. This family just wants their father home and a wife wants her husband back.  It is easy to dismiss 11 years as another statistic to this case without really thinking about how long it is. So Johina wants to ask you: "What have you done in the last 11 years?"
