Later we’ll talk with former Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio who is looking at ways to solve the election problems we saw here in Florida during this year’s Presidential election. But first one listener comment about yesterday’s interview with the executive director of the Florida Cannabis Action Network. tape From November 16-18, 2012, thousands of human rights activists, torture survivors, anti-war veterans, students, families, union workers, nuns, artists, and others will converge at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia, to call on the Obama administration to end the U.S. militarization of the Americas, and to close the School of the Americas (SOA/ WHINSEC)! We’re joined by two people who are planning to go to Fort Benning this weekend. The military base is a three hours drive north of Tallahassee.
