Video: Cynthia McKinney on the Demonization of Activists by the Government/Press


By BillyClub - Posted on 26 August 2011

Former US Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney (D-GA,) brought her "Truth Tour" to the historic Union Baptist Church, in Baltimore, MD, on August 25, 2011. Ms. McKinney has just returned from a fact-finding mission to war-torn Libya. In her remarks, she made some compelling comments about how the government and the "Special Interests Press" have used, and continues to use, their considerable resources to "demonize" peace and social justice activists. Ms. McKinney cited some examples of the activists targeted, via demonization. Of course, there are many more in that category. What I've noticed over the years, sadly, is how people who should know better buy into the demonization process. The event was sponsored by the "International Action Center." To learn more, go to: IACenter. See a longer video of Ms. McKinney's comments, at: YouTubeCynthiaMcKinney.
