Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:

Welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Today's program comes in three parts: We'll hear from peace activist and author Cindy Sheehan, we'll meet a local recreational fisherman who had a harrowing encounter with a nuclear submarine off Key West, and we'll get an eyewitness account of the situation in Gaza from a local peace activist who has just returned from the Middle East.

But first some comments about last Thursday's program on which the topic of right-wing conspiracy theories was raised (in the wake of the shooting at the U.S. Holocaust museum last week.

Internationally known activist and author Cindy Sheehan will be in St. Petersburg on Wednesday, June 17. Cindy has authored three books and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize after the death of her son in Iraq inspired the now infamous 2005 vigil at the doorstep of George Bush's Crawford Ranch.

Cindy will discuss her recently published Internet booklet, Myth America: 10 Greatest Myths of the Robber Class and the Case for Revolution, at two venues in downtown St. Petersburg. Both events are free and open to the public.

The evening will begin at 6 p.m. at NOVA 535 (located at 535 MLK Jr. Blvd, N.; Cindy will discuss her latest work followed by a book signing.

Cindy will then be at Cafe Bohemia (937 Central Ave., six blocks from NOVA 535) from 8 to 9 p.m. for a casual mix and mingle, followed by a question-and-answer session. Local musicians will provide the evening's music.

This event is being co-sponsored by St. Pete for Peace, WMNF 88.5 FM, Veterans for Peace (Tampa Bay), and Refuge Ministries. For driving directions, parking info, and more please visit stpeteforpeace.org/cindy, call Dwight at (727) 864-1535 or send email to Dwight@stpeteforpeace.org.
