May Saw a "First" in the Anti-War Movement

by D. Burbeck Friday, Jun. 09, 2006 at 8:25 AM

"America's first woman GI to declare herself a conscientious objector, Katherine Jashinski, was denied a discharge and courtmartialed on May 23rd. She is serving a 120 day prison sentence."

Here are more reports from Protest News in May:

"Protests held for Guantanamo Bay prison closure:

Protesters seeking a shutdown of the Guantanamo

Bay US prison camp marched to the US Mission

to the United Nations on Monday. They also held an

interfaith service in its entryway after building

owners asked New York police not to arrest them."

"Code Pink activists showed up on Mother's Day to challenge

the War Party. They took their case directly to the White House.

In a rally that included a mini-parade, speeches, a sing along

and the waving of plenty of roses, the Ladies in Pink were in

great form. Cindy Sheehan said they are "making a difference."

And, Actress Susan Sarandon read an open letter to Laura

Bush, in which she mocked Laura's husband, "The Decider,"

as a warmonger."

"...former Bush administration official Morgan Reynolds drew

an enthusiastic capacity crowd to the Wisconsin Historical

Society auditorium.... the former director of the Criminal Justice

Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis, and the ex-top

economist for George W. Bush's Labor Department, charged the

Bush administration with gross malfeasance, and proposed the

prosecution of top administration officials."

Demonstrations at Bush Administration Official's homes continued


"Two excellent protests were staged yesterday: One at the 1099

14th st military recruiters, and the other at World Bank president

Wolfowitz's home at 7104 Pinehearst Parkway, where air horns

shattered the still of the night."

ALSO: Ex CIA Agent Ray McGovern

and Cyndee Sheehan took a demonstration from the Whitehouse

to the doorstep of Rumsfeld's home. Wolfowitz, Negroponte (twice)

and Bill Frist were also targets of home demonstrations.

"Citizens Attempt Citizens' Arrest of Halliburton CEO at the Shareholder's

Meeting. DUNCAN, OK -- On May 17th, 2006, sixteen people from all

over the Heartland attempted a citizens' arrest of David Lesar at the

Halliburton Shareholders' meeting in Duncan, Oklahoma."

Bush, Cheney, Rice and McCain were all met with protests at speeches

they gave around the country.

Over a week of demonstrations at the Port of Olympia, Wash. brought

dozens of arrests, and demonstrators were pepper sprayed while

protesting against the loading of a ship bound for Iraq.

"Anti-war protests target lawmakers (in New Hampshire). The slogan is

the rallying cry of New Hampshire Peace Action, which organized

similar protests at all 14 congressional offices throughout the state

Wednesday. They are demanding a clear exit strategy for the war

and an open debate in the House about the war."

"Marcy Winograd, candidate for Congress, 36th District (LA-Beach

Cities), attempts to present an arrest warrant to Republican appointed

Sec of State Bruce McPherson who was "NOT IN!" Fearing a repeat

of the Ohio fiasco, Winograd demands verifiable voting. Her supporters

demonstrated in front of the Secretary's office last weekend."

Worldwide, protests were held in Nicaragua, South Korea, Edinburgh,

Sidney, and many cities in England.

"Student Activists from two universities will be Bicycling cross-country

from New York City, to Portland OR as part of the Bikes Against Big

Oil campaign, to express concern over rising gas prices."

And the most unusual - "One man's answer to the question, 'What

can I do to stop BushCo's dismantling of our Democracy for his

Imperialistic fantasy?' How one guy calls hundreds of Portlanders

to action each day, as part of his regular routine..."
