Report from Oakland


Hey David, it's Heather with CODEPINK. Just wanted to report back on the Oakland event, in case you wanted to post something on ADS.org--it was a huge success, the Grand Lake theater was standing room only, and the owner estimated around 4-500 people were turned away. While I wasn't able to watch the panel myself (no room in the theater), tabling for CODEPINK was a huge success outside, with people lining up to buy slices of "Impeachment Cobbler" and sign up to participate in the September 26th day of action in DC and at the federal building in San Francisco. KRON 4 News, the local NBC affiliate, showed up to tape the crowd after the panel had ended (it probably went an hour later than scheduled), and I heard the local Pacifica station had reporters there as well.

Hopefully someone was able to report from inside the theater for a blog spot on the panel.

The Grand Lake Theatre was filled with Barbara Lee's very appreciative followers. Barbara was joined by Steve Cobble, ADS co-founder; Bill Mitchel, Gold Star Families for Peace; Daniel Ellsberg,
The Pentagon Papers; and Harvey Tharp, Iraq Veterans against War. Much of the event's focus was on ways of getting answers to the questions inherent in the DSM. Of course Congresswoman Lee's Inquiry is central to that discussion. Dr. Ellsberg instructed us that there is also the option of any minority member of either of the intelligence committees initiating a hearing. He also said that as significant as the DSM is, similar U.S. documents would be critically important. He noted that the whistleblowers that have emerged thus far (Clarke, Wilson) have, unfortunately, not had documents to support their words.
