Organizer/Author
Film: "Ending U.S. Sponsored Torture Forever" followed by a brief discussion led by members of Bay Area Religious Campaign Against Torture (BARCAT). We will honor Berkeley Peace & Justice Commissioner Rita Maran for her work in getting the Berkeley City Council Guantanamo Resolution passed. Actions will be discussed, such as writing notes to send to Guantanamo detainees. Candidate Barrack Obama promised to close Guantanamo prison after worldwide outrage at revelations of tortures and deaths of prisoners never charged with a crime. What shall we do to overcome war profiteering and the loss of rights in a sea of vast and deep corruption? Co-sponsored by Code Pink Golden Gate.
