There was a small encampment for just a week, maybe two. Because only a couple of people were staying over night, it was thought to be too dangerous. The nearby community was not sympathetic.
At first, the daily vigils had as many as 50 people. Within weeks, the numbers dwindled. Some afternoons, I was the only one there.
There were plans for blocking trains but the Navy stopped running them on this stretch of public property. I wanted to block a train and get arrested but since the Navy stopped running the trains, I couldn't.
This is an important book and I'm grateful to Brian for writing it.
I'm fortunate to have met and been inspired by many of the individuals he mentions.
But I have to say, the inaccuracies are disturbing. Since I know from personal experience that some of this book isn't true, it makes me wonder what else might be invented.
I hope Brian rewrites this book in the future and I hope that other activists will write about what happened from their perspective with as little bias as possible.
The history of the Contra War, and the American peace activists who opposed it, is a powerful story. Fabrications that are meant to enhance the history only serve to dilute it.
Thank you Brian.
This is a very powerful book, that like the Occupy Wall Street protests going
on around the country pulls back the blinders that has hidden the real truths
in Corporate America and American Foreign policy. I highly recommend that
everyone read Brian's book it will open up your eyes to what American foreign
policy is really all about and how we, like the Occupy Wall Street protesters
around the country are telling us - it is time this country changed the way
it does business.
