Assaulted For Peace?
By Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Deb, Dr. Bill, Janis, Dan, Shayna, Kimberly, and Bryan—Your PDA National Team
With all that’s going on, we cannot lose sight of the growing risks of war and the ongoing humanitarian crises from occupations. Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is dedicated to ending wars and occupations. Medea Benjamin, our National Advisory Board member, is a champion for peace. She’s provided insights and spoken at countless PDA events from our launch in 2004 to our commemoration of RFK earlier this year. Medea has spoken out against the humanitarian crisis / genocide in Yemen. Recently, she was assaulted for debunking the neoconservative propaganda pushing us into war against Iran.
Save the date! CODEPINK is excited to announce a day-long summit for peace with Iran on December 1st at the First Congregational Church of Washington D.C. featuring panels, discussions, and workshops on planning a strategy to stop a new war in the Middle East. If you can’t be there in person, please contribute whatever you can to help PDA support the event and cover travel expenses, etc. If we can raise enough we will provide live streaming and on demand video!

“We must recognize the power of people’s movements….I thought It was so important to write a book on Iran, to go out into communities, brainstorming about how we’re going to stop the next war.”
—Medea Benjamin, national book tour, Champaign, Illinois, June 30, 2018.
