This is the draft of my acceptance to Project Censored for "The Secret behind the Sanctions". It will be shown by video tape. For folks in N. Cal., the Ceremony will be at Sonoma State Univesity on Sat. Sept. 28th. I offer my draft, because, missing from the official discourse, is any mention of the predictable impact on children (theirs, ours) of the escallation of the war so dear to the heart of the Bush and his posse and poodles. Perhaps a phrase or 2 from the draft may be helpful. best, Tom Nagy project censored 9 19 02i DRAFT In a few hours, I enter Iraq. Iím very scared of going. America and its mercenaries deal harshly with pacifists. But I am even more scared of not going. If I donít investigate first hand the mountain of dead and dying children and children who are slotted to die, I betray my beliefs. If I refuse to help protect Article 54 infrastructure like water treatment, I surrender my own humanity. Since my words alone have failed, I am compelled to document the ongoing waterborne epidemics and to shield a tiny part of the water system with my body. Since I am very scared, I am not too proud to beg the protection of your words. The words of Project Censored people can release the pent up residue of decency and compassion and self-interest and sanity inside America. Killing the infants of others must be the worst possible way to protect our own infants. In fact, nothing endangers our own kids more than killing someone elseís kids. We can continue to deny what Rep. Bonoir calls diplomacy by infanticide or we can end the massacre that outrages the mute earth and endangers our children. Choose life!
