ELLEN MARIANI – Standing Ovation

Ellen Mariani, whose husband Neil died on United Airlines Flight 175 on 9/11, fil1ed the first 9/11 legal action, a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan in December 2001 against United Airlines, claiming UA’s lax security led to the hijacking of UA 175 and her husband’s death. Less than 100 families waived payments going only to those promising not to sue the airlines or government.

Then on the second anniversary of 9/11 Mariani filed a RICO suit against G.W. Bush, his father, and top Bush 2 administration officials charging the Bush family with decades of manipulation of U.S. policy for their own power and profit.

She took her fight for justice for 9/11 families to the Supreme Court, which denied cert in February. She continues to fight her rights in New Hampshire probate court.

To silence Ellen, political and legal powers connected to the Bush administration, those who perpetuated or covered up 9/11, and those with financial interests in the proceedings  have used intimidation and the law to legally gag her. However, Ellen has bravely told her story in public forums and the courts.

CINDY SHEEHAN  Dreams Next Phase of Peace Plan

Soon after returning to her home in Northern California July 3 from Tour de Peace, her three-month cross country bike journey, Cindy Sheehan dreamt  she was leading a group of about 100 on a journey for peace to confront the political establishment. She was unsure where the group was or what they were doing. ‘

“In my dream we were confronted by the police and for some reason, I knew the next day that the “tour”‘would be prevented from continuing, or we would end up in detention, ” the peace activist wrote in her July 7, 2013 newsletter titled ” Respect Existence or Expect  Resistance,”  “As one of the leaders, I knew we needed a plan:” Should we have the confrontation in the morning, or sneak out in the night, she wondered.

A microphone was handed to Cindy to speak to the group, but, she wrote, “I tossed it aside and told my group to gather close to one another and to me because, if we don’t know each other, we can’t help each other.” I said it three times in my dream and I believe it was a prophetic dream.” Cindy’s website is called CindySheehansSoapbox and its logo is a microphone.

She believes she rejected the microphone because “as we all know, the government is listening, reading, and collecting everything we write or say.” A Freedom of Information Act  request revealed  the government was monitoring her events as early as 2007 and and possibly before at Camp Casey, her encampment outside G.W. Bush’s Texas compound which launched an international movement against the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

So how do we “resist” the evil and pervasive entity of the US Empire? Cindy asked in her newsletter. The answer her dream revealed: Community.

“We must really KNOW each other so we can help each other. To survive, we must struggle together in intimate ways that reveal our weaknesses as well as celebrate our strengths. ”

Although  no more than three people joined her bike excursion at one time, Cindy  met with hundreds of people on the cross country trip. Her dream, she said, is telling her “now through continuing actions and networking, it is important to become acquainted with each one — and build community.” She is launching this phrase  of her peace activism with a community conference call July 16 to consider “where do we go from here.”

CINDY SHEEHAN – Peddling for Peace

Cindy Sheehan, who son’s Casey was killed in the slums of Baghdad on April 4, 2004 in the U.S. attack on Iraq, is launching Tour de Peace, a cross-country  bike campaign to end wars. On Mother’s Day following his death, Cindy began dreaming about what happened to Casey and his fellow soldiers — unlike the fabricated story the U.S. Army supplied her. Her peace activism began.

The bike ride will travel from Casey’s grave in Vacaville, California to Arlington Cemetery, and end in Washington DC July 3. Tentatively will travel the Mother Road, Route 66 from California to Chicago; then to Washington, D.C.
