“The new regimes want constitutions to be more religious, and women all over the region are taking a stand against this,” said Hamouda Soubhi from Morocco at the World Social Forum
Following Rand Paul’s historic filibuster there is room for common cause in challenging killer drones
While progressives have all sorts of reasons to dislike Rand Paul’s Tea Party, small government libertarian views, killer drones is one issue on which progressives should make common cause with Paul and his growing legions of supporters. After all, it’s not about the messenger but the message. And compared to the Democratic Senators who have, with few exceptions, remained either silent or support of President Obama’s killer drones, Rand made a heroic stand. In gratitude, progressives should “Stand with Rand.”
John Brennan’s confirmation hearing to become head of the CIA will take place at the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, February 7. If CODEPINK had a chance to question John Brennan as his hearing on Thursday, here are some questions we would ask.
The man Obama wants for CIA director is the architect of a drone program that has killed hundreds of innocents
Medea Benjamin reports from a delegation to Gaza. Jamal Dalu, the shopkeeper whose home in Gaza City was demolished by an Israeli bomb that left 12 dead, including his wife and four children asked, “Obama, you say you want to teach us about democracy and the rule of law. Is this what you mean by democracy? Is this the rule of law?”
Foreign policy played a minor role in a presidential election that focused on jobs, jobs, jobs. But like it or not, the United States is part of a global community in turmoil, and U.S. policies often help fuel that turmoil. The peace movement, decimated during the first Obama term because so many people were unwilling to be critical of President Obama, has a challenge today to re-activate itself, and to increase its effectiveness by forming coalitions with other sectors of the progressive movement. Over the next four years, this movement must grapple with key issues such as the Afghan war, killer drone attacks, maintaining peace with Iran, US policy vis-a-vis Israel and Palestine, and the bloated Pentagon budget.
Medea Benjamin visits Obama’s counterterrorism chief John Brennan at home to talk with him about her recent trip to Pakistan and the effects of US drones.
CODEPINK activist Rae Abileah and her lawyers settle a case against with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) volunteer lobbyist, Stanley Shulster, who violently attacked Abileah at Occupy AIPAC in March 2011.
Counterterrorism adviser John Brennan spoke at the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington DC on April 30 to mark the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden. It was the first time a high level member of the Obama Administration spoke at length about the U.S. drone strikes that the CIA and the Joint Special Operations Command have been carrying out in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
Occupy AIPAC is taking place this upcoming weekend in Washington DC. Medea Benjamin explains how AIPAC’s clout helps fuel a never-ending cycle of violence in the Middle East.
American-made teargas is killing Bahrainis in villages targeted for collective punishment of Arab spring protests
The ceremonies for the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington DC were kicked off on August 24 at an event billed as Honoring Global Leaders for Peace. But some of those honored are a far cry from King’s … Continue reading
