The Peace Movement to Congress on Eve of Mobilization
by Medea Benjamin
January 26th, 2007
The January 27 anti-war rally in Washington DC could have become yet another symbolic peace march in the freezing cold through a city where no one was listening.

And George Bush, ignoring the will of the voters, the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, and the advice of his own generals, announced an escalation of the war.

By Gayle Brandeis

Where are the US women? Will they finally rise up?
by Medea Benjamin
January 5th, 2006
Let's make this March 8 a day when we revive the fighting spirit of International Women's Day, when we unleash the power of women coming together across generations, races, ethnicities, religions, and borders. Let's make it a day when we show our anger over the war, our compassion for our sisters in Iraq, our disgust with our leaders, and our determination to change course. And let's commit to building, over the long term, a women's peace movement that will make our global sisters, and our grandmothers, proud.

Why do we do it? What keeps us going back out week after week amid all the discouraging news?
We do it because we have to, because to do nothing is unthinkable. Because we are witnessing the dismantling of the best parts of America –compassion, justice, democracy, integrity, hope. Because we have a responsibility to the next generations, to our communities, our families, our selves.

Two Months Later, Katrina Survivors are Losing the Battle to Return Home
By Medea Benjamin, October 28, 2005

Before Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was a city of 485,000 people, 65% of whom were black.
