anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify
it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again,
and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue
me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking
part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people
on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...
Cindy Sheehan coming to Australia
Cindy Sheehan and Dr Salam Ismael will speak at a public meeting in Sydney on Tuesday May 23 at 7pm at the Seymour Centre, corner City Rd and Cleveland St.[Link to previous stuff on Cindy in this blog]
CINDY SHEEHAN is one of the most prominent voices is the US anti-war movement, and has become a symbol of the resurgance in the anti-war movement in the US over thelast year. She began campaigning against the Iraq war after her son, Casey, was killed serving in Iraq as a US soldier. She captured national media attention after setting up a peace camp outside George Bush's Texas ranch in 2005, demanding to know for "what noble cause" her son died. Cindy is one of the founding members of Gold Star Families for Peace, formed by families who have lost relatives in the Iraq war and campaignign for an end to the occupation.
DR SALAM ISMAEL is secretary general of the Doctors for Iraq Society, leading teams of volunteer doctors in crisis situations in Iraq. His trip will be an opportunity to hear first-hand about health conditions in occupied Iraq, and to raise awareness about the humanitarian plight of Iraqis living under occupation. Dr Ismael was one of the first independent observers to enter the city Fallujah after it was destroyed by US and allied occupation forces in November 2004. The Doctors for Iraq Society has brought to the world's attention numerous US atrocities in western Iraq. They are campaigning for an independent inquiry into human rights abuses in Fallujah.
