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. But then two things happened: On November 7, the voters gave Congress an unmistakable mandate to end the war. 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.

Iraqis’ Human Rights Are Still In Peril
by Medea Benjamin and Andrea Buffa
December 10, recognized internationally as human rights day, is an opportune moment to look at human rights in Iraq. Recent attention has been focused on the trial of Saddam Hussein, whose rule was infamous for its violations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which calls for freedom from unlawful deprivation of life, torture, disappearance, and arbitrary detention. The problem is that Iraqis are still not free from these grave violations of their human rights...

How to Support Our Troops on Veteran's Day
By Medea Benjamin and Gayle Brandeis, For November 11, 2005

This November 11, as we honor the sacrifice and courage of our veterans, let us recognize that the best way to support our troops is to call for their swift exit from Iraq, to guarantee them the care they deserve when they return, and to make policy changes that will stop us from ever again rushing into a reckless, oil-hungry war.

Why We Do It
by Terri Grayum, CommonDreams.org, November 6, 2005

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. Today, officials estimate that during the day there are some 125,000 people, falling to 70,000 at nighttime when many leave to find shelter outside the city. Mayor Nagin predicted that New Orleans would lose about half its pre-Katrina population. And with government policies and market forces stacked against the poor, the "new" New Orleans is becoming whiter and whiter.

2000 Too Many
by Medea Benjamin and Gayle Brandeis
Published on Tuesday, October 25, 2005 by CommonDreams.org

This 2000 wouldn't have happened without the year 2001. Without 9/11. Those numbers gave our president the false justification to begin this war. Some 3000 Americans were killed on the attacks of September 11. Now almost 2/3 that number have been killed in Iraq. And that's not counting soldiers who have died after leaving Iraq, died from horrendous wounds and tormented suicides. It doesn't count soldiers who are left permanently disabled or those who survived in body but not in spirit, the broken souls whose lives have been shattered by what they did and saw.

Celebrating Independence in the Era of Empire
by Medea Benjamin
This Fourth of July, while Americans are marching in parades and oohing and aahing at the fireworks, it would be a patriotic gesture to also spend some time thinking about what independence means today. Our nation was founded on a determination to be free of domination by the British empire. The US Declaration of Independence proclaimed the need to fight the War of Independence against Britain because King George III had 'kept among us standing armies' that committed intolerable 'abuses and usurpations.' Today it is our government whose standing army is committing abuses and usurpations in foreign lands.

Notes from Prison
by Camilo Mejia
December 1st, 2004
When I first heard about the possibility of war, I said to myself that many unlikely things would have to take place. I felt that without clear evidence of nuclear or chemical weapons, without a clear link between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, that without clear evidence of Iraq posing a threat to us, we would not really invade.

Women’s Rights In Iraq and at Home Going Backwards

Saddam is Captured, Let the Liberation Begin

December 15th, 2003
After floundering around in search for justifications for the war in Iraq that ranged from fighting terrorism to ridding Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, George Bush finally settled on a goal of liberating the Iraqi people.

The World is His Battlefield

He found his higher calling: to rid the world of terrorism. And he proclaimed this calling to the world in no uncertain terms. Finally, he would be more than the son of George Bush I, more than the son who rode his father's political coattails into office.

June 2005: Phase II of the Anti-War Movement
By Medea Benjamin
For the history books, mark down June 2005 as the moment the US movement against the occupation of Iraq got its second wind. In June, the US public became solidly anti-war, Bush’s approval rating took a nosedive, and a significant number of Congresspeople started to call for an exit strategy. This marks a seismic shift from just one month ago, when Congress overwhelmingly passed another $82 billion for war—with only 44 members of the House and not one Senator dissenting.

Withdraw U.S. Troops, by Medea Benjamin
Published on April 30, 2005 by the Miami Herald / Florida 

Two years have passed since President Bush stood atop an aircraft carrier (May 1, 2003) and announced the end of major combat operations in  Iraq. Since that "mission accomplished" photo-op, more than 1,400 U.S. troops and thousands of Iraqi civilians have died. And just recently, the Pentagon acknowledged that insurgent attacks have again increased to last year's levels of some 400 attacks per week.

Give that Man a Pink Slip!

On International Women's Day, Do Something Good for Iraqi Women
by Medea Benjamin
Iraqi and US women have a lot in common. Both list safety as a top concern, and are worried about the increasing violence and militarization of their societies. Both see jobs and health care as top priorities, and feel uncertain about their economic security. And both are grossly underrepresented in the halls of power.

Peace in a Time of Perpetual War
by Medea Benjamin*
Immediately after George Bush declared victory on November 2, 2004, his administration gave the green light for an all-out attack on the Iraqi rebel town of Fallujah. The town was virtually leveled, hundreds of civilians were killed, and over 150,000 became desperate refugees suffering from hunger, cold and disease. And all this after Bush supposedly won the election because of his strong moral values!
