Hi Lisa,

As you are a local coordinator for Code Pink, I thought you would want to know about this incident that I received with my regular email Inbox. Media Benjamin, CODEPINK cofounder was involved in the incident.

All the best to you, Lisa, my friend,
Stuart

Today: US Citizen Badly Beaten by Israeli Police during Peaceful Protest
Contact: Ann Wright 011-972-542642480

Tamara Schreiber, Coalition of Women for Peace, 011-972-0527912972

Rae Abileah, CODEPINK, 052-356-6070 (Israeli)

June 14th, 2009


Today, as Netanyahu gave his first major policy address as Prime Minister, a response to Obama's Cairo speech, an American was badly beaten in the street outside the speech during a peaceful protest at Bar-Ilan University. Police put up barricades to separate the peace group demonstrators and the counter-demonstrators. Press photographers were in the middle of the street shooting both demonstrations. One photographer, Flore Chapon, a french photo-journalist who had been documenting CODEPINK's 150 person peace delegations through Egypt, Israel and Gaza, was grabbed out of the street, arrested and taken to a police station in Ramat-Gan. Chapon was later released from police custody.

In an attempt to find out what was happening about Flore's arrest, members and coleaders of the peace delegation approached the Israeli police to ask why a member of the press was being arrested, the police responded violently, pushing them down to the ground and beating the peaceful demonstrators. Tighe Barry, a US citizen delegate from California, suffered an asthma attack during the police violence and Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK cofounder, and delegate Rae Abileah attempted to shield him from the blows. Other demonstrators called the ambulance as the riot police were unresponsive to the request for emergency medical attention. Barry was taken to the local hospital where he is currently receiving medical care. No other updates on his condition are available at the time of this release.

Ann Wright, who was at the peaceful demonstration and is a member of the 150 person CODEPINK peace delegation, said, "It is outrageous that the police would be so violent toward peaceful protestors. They were beating one of our delegates as he was having an asthma attack, they arrested press, they ignored our calls for an ambulance, they were brutally dragging women across the street--these are not the actions of a democratic state. The fact that the US government financially supports this government in its brutal actions toward Palestinians and American citizens is an outrage."

The peace groups, CODEPINK and the Coalition of Women for Peace, were demonstrating for peace in support of obama's Cairo call to limit settlement growth and challenged him to go one step further by cutting military aid to Israel and lift the siege of Gaza.

Thank you, Lisa, for clarifying for me what I had understood differently. I see by your most recent posting that you are involved with 3 organizations. Excellent!

As you can see by my profile, I am involved with 3 also as president of the Tucson Peace Center, Peace Group Leader of my church, and a member of Democracy for America - Tucson and a member of its Steering Committee.

I see that we have other things in common too. You are a director of your credit union. When I was a Personnel Interviewer at Wyckoff Height's Hospital in Brooklyn, New York we had a credit union and I held the position of Director of Education.

Also you wrote that you work in community radio. I went to the radio school of KXCI 91.3 FM (Community Radio) and successfully completed its course and applied and received my lifetime FCC license. Also, I hosted my own show on KXCI for 2 years and 4 months.

We seem to have a lot in common, Lisa.

I am glad that we have become friends.

All the best to you, Lisa, my new friend,
Stuart

Blowing in The Wind
Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
before you call him a man?
Yes, and how many seas must the white dove sail
before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
before they're forever banned?

Chorus: The answer my friend is blowing in the wind;
The answer is blowing in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many years must one man have
before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take till he he knows
that too many people have died?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind;
The answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
pretending that he just doesn't see?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind;
The answer is blowing in the wind.
