Nationwide speaking tour
Cynthia McKinney reports back
on the massive bombing of 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 at the San Francisco event will be Akbar Muhammad of the Nation of Islam, and Omar Ali and Gloria La Riva 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.
Sponsored by ANSWER Coalition and Unitarian Universalists for Peace.
