Does it do any good? None you can see. But I for one can not stand idle, while my government kills Iraqi and Afghan children in my name with my tax dollars, for I have been too close to the spear tip when thousands of Vietnamese children were killed when I actively helped their murder. Murders, which continue today by the poisons and unexploded bombs we spread across their country.

=item 4 FairDistrictsFlorida.org online fundraiser 09SEP2009

Florida's present system permits politicians to choose their voters instead of voters choosing their representatives. Legislators use sophisticated computers, voter registration data and past election returns to predict how particular voters will vote in the future. Then they choose which voters are most likely to vote for them and their party and place just enough of those voters in "safe" districts -- ones they are sure they can win. Those in charge also pack large numbers of unfavorable voters in into a few districts so the unfriendly voters will have a chance to win in fewer districts.
On 9.9.09 we will host the biggest online fundraiser in Florida history so we may chose our politicians.
FairDistrictsFlorida.org needs you to help.
Please pledge to donate on 9.9.09 and also sign up be a co-host.
If you ask others to contribute, we will send you a link to your personal fundraising page.

=item 6 Beyond Guantanamo: Effective Plans to Prosecute Terrorists & Protect America

Human Rights First CEO Elisa Massimino and Major General Paul Eaton (Ret.) will be looking "Beyond Guantanamo" as keynote speakers at Florida State University's annual "Human Rights in the 21st Century" lecture.
This timely event takes place on September 11th at 12:30 pm on the FSU campus.
Eight years after the 9/11 attacks, the United States is at a critical crossroads with regard to how it will hold and prosecute Guantanamo detainees who stand accused of terrorism-related crimes.
Massimino and General Eaton will present practical solutions to strengthen national security and ensure that those who have committed crimes are held accountable, while still respecting America's values and international law. They will be joined at this event by Harry K. Singletary, Jr., Florida's former Secretary of Corrections.
General Eaton is a West Point graduate who spent more than 33 years in the U.S. Army. He served most recently as the Commanding General charged with reestablishing the Iraqi Security Forces.
To RSVP to this event, email Carly Goodman at goodmanc@humanrightsfirst.org

=item 11 Merchant of Death Protest 21SEP2009
Join us on September 21, 2009 to demand weapons manufacturers begin retooling their facilities.

September 21 is the International Day of Peace. Join us to demand that weapons manufacturers begin retooling their facilities. The Military Industrial Complex consumes approximately 50% of U.S. tax dollars and the human and ecological costs are enormous. At the same time, the manufacturing of goods Americans can use has dried up, leaving millions of people out of work. Many of them are already homeless and others on the verge of homelessness.
Retooling weapons manufacturing facilities will create new jobs and provide American made products while sustaining those who already work in the weapons industry. It can further stimulate innovative ideas, many already proposed but languishing without funding, and provide opportunities for sustainable, peaceful enterprises.
Join RiseUpTampaBay, Florida Peace Action Network, Veterans for Peace, PDA and other activist organizations at Raytheon in Largo on September 21, 2009 from 4:00-7:00pm.
Raytheon is located at 7887 Bryan Dairy Rd, Largo 33777.

=item 16 Close the SOA! 22-24NOV2009

November 20-22, 2009 - Converge on Fort Benning, Georgia
The military coup by SOA graduates in Honduras has once again exposed the destabilizing and deadly effects that the School of the Americas has on Latin America. The actions of the school's graduates are unmasking the Pentagon rhetoric and reveal the anti-democratic results of U.S. policies. It is time for a change towards justice.
From November 20-22, 2209, thousands will vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia, to stand up for justice, to shut down the School of the Americas and to end the oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the school represents
