We are moving over AIPAC because...

They are moving over AIPAC (May 21-23) because...
...they're rocking CODEPINK interns Dara and Sanaa,
taking a stand against the Israel lobby.

They have a lot of solid reasons, and a lot of burning desire for justice.

They end by quoting Emmett Till's mama: "We don't have a minute to hate. We have to pursue justice for the rest of our lives."

Here are some short videos I made of Medea Benjamin talking about pursuing justice for a long time.

On coalitions, and the controversy over Helen Thomas speaking, then not speaking, then covering the upcoming AIPAC convention in Wash DC.

On the fake fiscal crises, and a funny story about her youthful grappling with the problem of scarcity vs. unequal distribution.

On why Egypt and Wisconsin and, yes, Portland, Maine, made her say, "This is the time for the youth."
