Stop censoring coverage of the massive anti-war movement, including women's work for peace and justice. Stop censoring the news! Stop broadcasting war propaganda. Stop referring to the killing of people as 'collateral' damage. Instead of broadcasting the truth CNN and other mainstream media repeats governments propaganda which orginates from the Pentagon and the board room of Texas based oil companies, rallying the support for wars and genocide. For many in the Global South the only access to world news is CNN, which purposely misinforms people around the world, hiding the truth while supporting policies that benefits the corporations that won them, at the cost of millions of lives around the world. While the media promotes war, they ignore that money poured into the military is at the expense of the needs of women, children and entire communities, means more of us are forced to take jobs we don't want: in the miliary; working in industries that pollute, make us sick and destroy the environment, or are low-waged. Welfare 'reform' forces more women into prostititution to survive, leaving more of us vulnerable to violence on the streets.
