From Cynthia McKinney – From London 3/29/09

Hello!  I’m currently in London, invited by the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War, to participate in a Forum for Palestine sponsored by the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  The event is taking place at the Marriott Grosvenor Hotel on March 31, 2009.  This one-day Forum will feature the Malaysian Foreign Minister Dato Serri Rais Yatim giving the opening address and former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Mahathir presenting the keynote address.  I will speak for about 20 minutes on the Genocide in Palestine and, of course, what happened to me in international waters while on a boat carrying medical supplies, attempting to reach the besieged people of Gaza.

Of course, it is right here in London that George Galloway‘s triumph must be marked of reaching Gaza by land in a convoy of vehicles.  Even in triumph, M.P. Galloway acknowledged that they still had to ask Israel’s permission for some of the vehicles to enter Gaza.  Nonetheless, what Galloway did was absolutely phenomenal and those of us who tried to reach Gaza by sea, through the territorial waters of the Gaza remained committed to that goal.  However, we must deal with the issue of impunity.  Right now, we see that justice is blind–meaning that those most in need of justice are the ones to whom the system of justice constructed in our country and internationally, is blind.  We must change that.

For those of you who are, or who have friends who are in London, please pass this message along.  It would be great if we could have a better-than-expected turnout of our Power to the People friends who are “across the pond.”

I am in the process of putting a message together on the current economic morass into which Obama’s economic team, following Bush’s, is leading us.  In short, what Washington, D.C. is doing is devoid of all sense, unless the objective is to aid and abet those who want to rob the taxpayer. During our Power to the People campaign, we put forward some principles that would ensure that the economy of the United States was one that worked for the people.  In the time since then, I’ve met some wonderful “people’s economists” who point the way with practical policy recommendations that are being ignored.  Heck, even David Walker, the US former Comptroller, is still being ignored.  It’s not rocket science–although those in charge would want you to believe it is.  And the it’s not being done because those in charge don’t want us to be the arbiters of our economic destiny.  More on that later.
