Galloway to go on anti-war tour of US with Jane Fonda
By Andrew Buncombe in Washington
Published: 27 August 2005

George Galloway, the anti-war MP for Bethnal Green and Bow who rocked the US Senate earlier this year, is to be accompanied on a speaking tour of America by the actress and activist Jane Fonda.

Few things are more likely to antagonise US conservatives than the combination of Mr Galloway and Ms Fonda - still hated by the right because of her outspoken opposition to the war in Vietnam - joining to condemn the American presence in Iraq. But Mr Galloway can expect a thunderous reception from those he impressed with his performance before a Senate committee last May.

In a statement, Mr Galloway, the Respect MP, said: "I'm really pleased and excited to be going back to America to campaign against this illegal war and occupation. And to have Jane Fonda join me is fantastic. I'll be able to get that autograph at last."

He added: "I'm sure that when the full implications of the constitutional settlement lashed-up by the puppet Iraqi government are understood that opposition will grow massively."

Mr Galloway, whose speaking tour, Stand Up and Be Counted, starts in Boston on 13 September and will end at a rally scheduled for 24 September in Washington, said he had received more than 20,000 messages from US residents asking him to return. He will also be promoting a new book, Mr Galloway Goes To Washington.

A tour organiser, Chris Dols, said: "People want to hear Jane Fonda and what she has to say about the war. That's worth hearing, and George Galloway has a lot to say about it, too."

If there were ever two people who were made for each other it's Galloway and Hanoi Jane. The moonbats on the left keep giving the gift that keeps on giving. Look for some good soundbites in 2006

What you are really up in arms about is the power coming out of this speaker's mouth. Mr. Galloway is one of the best at issuing the right wing liars a sound ass whipping. He will deliver the truth with sound logic and most of all, something the right wing is most scared of: more truth. If you have learned all you need to know about your lie points, it won't be enough for what is coming your way. Sit back and be ready to lie like you never have; in fact, you should break out the big guns like Rus and the Fox Network. You will need propaganda and special commentators to counter this verbal and intelligent beating

That's right, because both Jane Fonda and George Galloway represent the will of the people. For Fonda it was the will of the American and the Vietnamese people, and now the Iraqi people. Now Galloway is representing the will of the British people as they are both representing the will of all sane and decent people in the world.
I know that's the last thing your type likes to see.

yawn... same old rubbish, snide comments with no substance.

You would not last 30 seconds in a debate with George Galloway. Away home to mummy son.

Whatever happened to the phony charges levied against George Galloway by the corrupt millionaire senators from the US Congress ?

Maybe Galloway should walk again into the US Congress and teach all these corrupt American politicians another lesson when he visits Washinton again and give them all a good dressing down again.

The US government is an absolute joke - no other country on the face of the earth runs such a corrupt, billion dollar political farce that is the US congress today. Absolutely scandalous how these days it takes a billion U$ to finance an American presidential campaign - what kind of a democracy is that ?

It's time for a new revolution in the US - what is needed is a little mutiny in the American armed forces who should stand up against this massive corruption in Washington and they should rise up and move to arrest Wolfowitz, Perle, Cheney, Bush and all the other charlatans and send them all over to Guantanamo Bay so that they can be carted around and incarcerated in the dog cages there where today the US government keeps Afghani taxi drivers, farmers and other "Al Qaeda" types....

I'm afraid I'm not aware of him, as I was such a fan of Robin Cook (God rest his soul). Your recommendation of Galloway is most encouraging> and exciting! Please keep us posted on your commentary of Galloway speeches.

I, for one, will encourage the entire nation of France to speak against Bush IN AMERICA IN EVERY TOWN SQUARE (they are welcome to stay at my home, well not the entire nation of France, but a few French are welcome anytime > mi casa es su casa. I feel like the French butt-whipping they gave me was well worth waking up my senses;)

You really have nothing to say, don't you, Joseph?

.
Joseph and Galloway are where it's at>>> "it" is TRUTH, BTW!!!

I think the fame may have gone to Galloway's head and adversely affected his thinking. Most Americans don't take kindly to lectures from foreigners, even allies.

Maybe Galloway's main interest is the international exposure and publicity. But if his aim is to persuade a large segment of the American public, he might do well to consider his choice of partners a little more carefully. Even some of those who strongly oppose this war aren't big fans of Jane Fonda's actions in Vietnam and she herself has admitted errors in judgement.

Mr Galloway is exactly what you and the citizens of the country need to see and hear, someone with the guts to tell you what has happened and what will happen as long as the current administration is in power.Obviously you did not see Mr Galloway defend himself and spank the butts of a few arrogant members of congress.If it takes a English man to wake you up, so be it.Good luck Mr Galloway!

I'm not sure what is "obvious" to you, but I did in fact see George Galloway's previous U.S. appearance and I heard his full response to congressional accusations quite clearly. Not only that, I agreed with and applauded his powerful counter-attack. Furthermore, I'm not saying that the U.S. population doesn't need a very sharp wake up call.

I am saying, however, that Americans in general seldom respond well to criticisms of their government from foreigners and, if persuasion of the American public is Galloway's objective, I seriously doubt that Jane Fonda's involvement is the best possible adjunct to his cause.

In any case, I don't expect that he'll pay my opinion much mind.

Too true... except Mr Galloway is Scottish.

Finally an export other than whisky.

GO GEORGE GALLOWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TO ALL MY "YELLOW-BELLIED, SOFT AND COMPLIANT AMERICAN COMPATROITS" ON THIS SITE THAT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE TRUTH AND REAL COURAGE.......WATCH THE BRIT GALLOWAY AND LEARN WHAT THE REAL AMERICAN SPIRIT LOOKS LIKE!

Mr Galloway is Scottish, My mistake in calling him english.
Americans do not respond well to criticisms of their goverment by foreigners...give me a break,hell there has been very little dissent by foreigners or from citizens in the U.S. of A. until Mrs Sheehan began her virgil.If Mr Galloway is in disagreement with current U.S. policy and is not afraid to speak out,good for him, give em bloody hell...maybe, just maybe there will be someone from congress that will pull their head out of their rear end and begin to attack and expose the intentional deceit by the administration. As far as Jane, I do not think she will be the person focused upon during these engagements. Again, good luck Mr Galloway!
