I meant to post this earlier.  Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting Bill Perry of Veterans for Peace.  He and his organization have done amazing things, not the least of which was “Arlington North,” a temporary memorial outside the Liberty Bell to fallen US soldiers (this project was, itself, harking to Arlington West in Santa Monica).  You can watch a brief news piece on Arlington North here.

It’s my understanding that he and others from this organization have worked with Raed Jarrar, who we discussed in the post, “ATTENTION: Terrorists Don’t Wear Terrorist T-Shirts.” I understand that some from their group were arrested at the Pentagon for dropping pamphlets with the same slogan that Jarrar featured on his shirt (“We will not be silent,” written in Arabic).
