Soapbox Podcasts Relating to Political Prisoners

Image
Cindy Sheehan is still on break diligently working on her new book, but in honor of Bradley Manning, we are comp iling a list of Soapbox Podcasts rel ated to political pr isoners and other US (in )justice system related issues! Please check it out and listen if anything strikes your fancy! This compli lation re f lects the seriousness with w hich we take this issue. The Soapbox believes that trying to remove specks out of the eyes of othe r world leaders about this issue w hile ignoring the huge log in Obama's eye fails to address the true issue: T he US incarcerates more people per capita than any other country and it is obviously at least two different (in)justice systems --one for the rich and another for the poor.       Here at the Soapbox, we also think it's tragic that more people in the US hav e heard of Putin's Pussy Rioters than of Bradley Manning, Lynne Stewart or the Cuban 5. (We try to change that!)    ( F rom E arliest to L at

Peace, how? The Way Forward by Cindy Sheehan

I had the strangest dream last night (no, I didn’t dream of Joe Hill or that I was eating a giant marshmallow). It was a vivid dream, you know, one of those that seem too real to be a dream, but too bizarre to be real? I dreamt that the Congressional Democrats (including my old nemesis, Nancy Pelosi) had invited me to speak to a large gathering of the Democratic faithful. Of course, I didn’t realize this until I was in the middle of my speech and the details were revealed. I was giving my regular “It’s not about partisan politics, it’s about the CYST-em” speech and I was amazed that I was receiving standing ovations from this crowd of raging-Democrats! I was just getting into how the “Fiscal Cliff” could be avoided by ending the occupations and closing the hundreds of US military bases around the world, when I was cut-off by a Congressperson who had apparently had enough of my ranting. After I was cut off, many members of the audience came up to me to hug me and tell me

It’s time for Congress to say NO to the Israel Lobby. It’s time to expose AIPAC. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), part of the Israel lobby, has created an atmosphere of coercion and intimidation in our country’s political system that works for an agenda of endless war, Israeli occupation, apartheid, rampant Anti-Arab racism and Islamophobia . ◊ AIPAC is currently drumming up American support for an attack on Iran, which would cause untold suffering in that country at the cost of billions of US dollars with no conceivable benefit for U.S. citizens. ◊ AIPAC consistently lobbies on behalf of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands , facilitating the transfer of more

Cindy Sheehan Visits Fresno - 11/10/2012

Image
Source: ksee24.com Cindy Sheehan, Roseanne Barr's running mate for the presidential election, made an appearance in Fresno. She joined Peace Fresno at Blackstone and Shaw to protest war and President Obama's foreign policy. Sheehan's son was killed in Iraq, back in 2004. She's also known for setting up a protest camp outside of George Bush's ranch that same year (Correction: she set up Camp Casey in Aug. 2005). After the protest, the group marched to a church to talk about peace. "That's what the march is for, to end the wars. Call attention to the fact that we're still at war and to hopefully inspire a new movement against the wars." Sheehan also talked about her new book, Revolution, A Love Story. The fifth book she's written in her quest for peace.
