Goin' to Crawford Today


Sorry I have not been able to post for a few days. Besides having a hectic work week, I am organizing to travel to Crawford later this morning to attend the antiwar rally with Cindy Sheehan, Codepink, The Gold Star Families for Peace, and the good folks at the Crawford Peace House, without whose year-round work and efforts, this would not be possible. This is probably no surprise for those who check in here from time to time.
I will come back, loaded with pictures, so check back. I’ll also be posting at The Blue Republic, where they will be publishing the Crawford Travelogue Journal. Come check it out.

In the meantime, I posted a question there last night.
I was wanting to burn a CD to play in the car, antiwar songs for inspiration.

With the help of the others at The Blue Republic, we came up with a nice list, but could still use more. Any good antiwar music you can add to this list??

(By the way, most of these can be listened to in part on the Apple iTunes store. ITunes, if you don’t have it is a free download for Mac or PC, and you can hear podcasts free as well on it.)

Here’s the list so far:
Peace Train by Cat Stevens
War by the Temptations
Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan
Imagine by John Lennon
The Great Mandella by Peter, Paul and Mary
War by Bob Marley
F*ck Bush by Madeline Hsu Li
Freedom by Jimi Hendrix
The Times They Are a Changin' By Bob Dylan
With God on Our Side by Judy Collins
We Shall Overcome by Joan Baez
Teach Your Children by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
Guns on the Roof by the Clash
Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire
The Dove has torn her wing by Jacques Brel
A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall by Bob Dylan
The Universal Soldier by Donavan
Turn, Turn, Turn by The Byrds
Where is the Love? by the Black-eyed Peas

So awesome you're going. That's it. I'm badgering the hubby to see if we can go...

Those songs are great. You should put together a compliation CD... think of me when you give Cindy a hug... if I end up there, is there a way to find you?

I gave Cindy a hug and had my picture taken. Only have brief feed out here in the country courtesy of a Japanese reporter.16 people, including Danielle Ellsbergm have been arrested.
More soon/very mellow otherwise.

Peace be with you, Glenda. Very nice list of songs. I agree with Kathleen, make a CD. Be safe, and we'll talk next week.

You're the greatest witch in the west, Glenda. Wish I could be there. If you get sleepy, add some Rage Against the Machine to that song list. That'll keep your eyes open.

Thanks, Guys for your suport.

OK, I am back in my bunker for the evening. I'm commuting to come back and make sure my dogs are Ok. All is well in this world. The activists who were arrested about a helf hour before we arrived are in jail in Waco. They were trying to find a judge to arrange bail when I left. Do not know if they ever were able to find one on a Good Friday or not.

It was a lovely day, hot, in the low 90s, but the breeze made it fairly comfortable, although a lot of the older people were "glistening" as we say down south.
I was able to walk the last mile or so to Camp Casey, despite a flair up of asthma due to extremely high pollen count...darn those allergies!

Still, we walked the asphalt country road to Camp Casey to find a fine meal waiting for us and lots of cool water and great company. Lots to do in the afternoon. More later.
There will be a full report here and on the Blue Republic.

The whole 2 Rock Against Bu$h albums.

No need to apologize for not posting Glenda. The real world is more important than this.
I would add one song to your CD (I know it is too late) but that is American Woman by the Guess Who.

American woman, said get away
American woman, listen what I say
Don’t come hangin’ around my door
Don’t wanna see your face no more
I don’t need your war machines
I don’t need your ghetto scenes
Coloured lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else’s eyes
Now woman, get away from me
American woman, mama let me be.
