Hands Off Jill Carroll

You're abducted at gunpoint from a Baghdad street… your friend and translator is killed before your eyes… you’re held hostage in isolation for 82 days in rooms where you can’t even see outside and threatened with death.

Milwaukee Labor Rallies Against the War

By Sue Ruggles

Milwaukee turned out in great numbers for the March 18 March and Rally against the war. The main slogan was "U.S. Out of Iraq Now -- Three Years of War is Enough!" The media estimated 850 people -- but organizers put it closer to 1000. We had almost 50 in the labor contingent, led by David Newby, president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. SEIU Local 1 and AFT Local 212 were well represented, along with AFSCME, Steelworkers, and others. More union people joined us at the rally site -- nearly 100 altogether -- wearing union jackets and buttons, and holding signs. The Local 212 banner was right up in front, along with another one that said Milwaukee Labor Against the War.

President Bush calls the 1,600-acre ranch he owns outside Crawford with his wife, Laura, "our little slice of heaven," but some experts question whether anti-war demonstrators are making the Western White House a less attractive getaway.

"That used to be his sanctuary, out in the middle of rural Texas where he could get his mind off his troubles," said Bruce Buchanan, a professor of political science at the University of Texas who specializes in presidents. "And now his troubles are right down the street."

Standing For Something

They arrive, once a week, like clockwork. From the back seat of each car, or trunk, they unload their signs. Each sign states another aspect of what they are all about. Some signs declare the immorality or illegality of this war on Iraq. Others demand that our soldiers come home now. Others state how many young Americans have already been killed. There are signs calling for impeachment. Signs asking " Honk for Peace". Statements for Medicare for All Americans. Protest signs on the $ 400 billion spent for this unnecessary attack and occupation of Iraq, or asking what really might have happened on 9/11. There are signs alerting the public to the Downing Street Minutes. All in all, a vast array of signs and statements in dissent of this President, Vice President and their neo con allies.

From David Swanson

I visited your university a couple of years ago for a presidential
candidates debate, and the whole event was very well done. I still have a
Pace sweatshirt. But I will feel less comfortable wearing it, knowing that
you are charging two of your students with freedom of speech and assembly.
These are not crimes, but protected rights under the first amendment to the
US Constitution.
