From Cynthia McKinney: Eyewitness to NATO in Tripoli Tour




I'm inviting you to please come and support this effort.  At each stop, people who have traveled to Tripoli with me on various DIGNITY Delegation trips will be asked to speak and give their impressions.  We will present photos and as-yet unseen video.  Proceeds from the tour will help me pay back the loan that got our Delegation to Tripoli and fund other peace work that will include additional delegations. 

Watch this interview of Michel Collon as he recounts the sordid history of our countries against people of color time and time again (thanks Rosemary for the reference): 

Here are the tour dates and locations:

Huge bunker-buster bomb creates
devastating damage in downtown Tripoli.

The ANSWER Coalition is sponsoring a nationwide speaking tour featuring former Congressional representative and presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, who is currently in Libya on her second fact-finding mission, will offer an eyewitness report exposing the truth that has been concealed by the western corporate media.

Also speaking on the tour will be Akbar Muhammad of the Nation of Islam, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark and Brian Becker, National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition. 

McKinney and the other speakers will shed light on the devastating impact of the U.S./NATO bombing of Libya and the extensive civilian casualties that the White House, Pentagon and the media have persistently denied. McKinney is currently on her second trip to Libya during the NATO bombing. During her time there, she has visited several hospitals, and has conducted video interviews with doctors and the wounded.

Under the guise of humanitarian intervention and protecting civilians, NATO has carried out a massive bombing of Africa's largest oil producer. McKinney's report shows how devastating the bombing has been for civilians in Tripoli and elsewhere.
