I (Ciaron) write this as someone who has spent the last 30+ years being dragged through the courts, cells and jails for anti-war resistance. I'm beat up but upbeat. I'm pissed off but not depressed. I'm tired but not out of ideas. I'm hoping that this piece stimulates debate and fast. I'm not risking a life buried alive in the American gulag like whoever released this footage hoping to stimulate a broader debate about the wars. Or Julian Assange for circulating it.
Please consider joining us in solidarity with Bradley, Julian, Shaker and the people of Iraq and Afghanistan who remain in the firing line. Join us here or make a public statement there where you are.
Be there or be square or be anywhere! Free Julian Assange! Free Bradley Manning! Free Speech! End the War!
"The poor tell us who we are,
The prophets tell us who we could be,
So we hide the poor,
And kill the prophets."
