Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
During this segment, several representatives of community groups were in the WMNF studios to talk about their efforts to oppose the escalation of the war in Iraq.
Members of the Florida Consumer Action Network were on the program today with a representative from Veterans for Common Sense, Gene Jones, and from Code Pink, Lauren Mitchell. Chrystal Hutchison and Bill Newton represented FCAN.
The Community Forum is Wednesday, April 11 7 pm at the Selby Auditorium at USF Sarasota. There is a flyer and map on the FCAN web site www.fcan.org Vern Buchannon, Kristine Jennings, and Jan Schneider are invited, but so far, none have accepted the invitation. Open to the public. FCAN was told last week, and Mitch Perry reported, that we weren’t going to be allowed to use the auditorium. Now, its back on. What changed their minds? FCAN called the ACLU and they apparently got the university to open their doors. Americans Against Escalation in Iraq is at http://www.noiraqescalation.org
