Activist Medea Benjamin putting her body on the line for justice

Described as “one of America’s most committed — and most effective — fighters for human rights” by New York Newsday, and “one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement” by the Los Angeles Times, she was one of 1,000 exemplary women from 140 countries nominated to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the millions of women who do the essential work of peace worldwide.

She is the author of ten books, including Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control and Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection.

Her most recent book, Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran, is part of a campaign to prevent a war with Iran and instead promote normal trade and diplomatic relations.

Her articles appear regularly in outlets such as The Guardian, The Huffington Post, CommonDreams, Alternet and The Hill.

  1. Odd, but we hear about her, but not Rachel Correy. For that reason, I have decided to take PINK out of my wardrobe rotation color. Now they attach to a color . . . oy vey? But, pray tell, what is RACHEL CORREY’s color? She did put her body on the line . . . and under a militarized bulldozer by the IDF (Israeli Defense Fraud) and yet, no one ever writes about that unsung hero.

    Anne Franke cover stories . . . for all!

  2. IN a Military Force Where They Openly Call the Female Soldiers On Their Face That ” You’re Only A Walking Matress Who is Here To Entertain us ” ………. I don’t expect much from those Bastards AND I Certainly Don’t Believe Their Alibis …………….

  3. I find it interesting that Trump was heard on the Lev Parnas recording saying about Marie Yovanovitch, the US Ambassador to Ukraine, “take her out!”, the exact same wording he used to describe the ambush on General Soleimani,…”we took him out!” Was the president actually ordering the assassination of his own ambassador to Ukraine?
