Greetings - **Scott Ritter Transcript** - on Perpetual War and the Rise of Fascism We have uploaded to http://traprockpeace.org our transcript of the amazing July 9th International Press Conference with Scott Ritter. Since the press conference, he has been interviewed on CNN and given a press conference at the UN. His new book - "Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Bushwhacking of America" - came out this week. http://www.contextbooks.com/newF.html >From the Traprock press conference: "There are four words that the American people need to familiarize themselves with: democracy, republic, oligarchy, fascism. We're supposed to live in a democratic republic. We don't. We line in an oligarchy,, and we're sliding towards fascism..." Scott Ritter We encourage downloading and radio airing of the press conference. It has played in the Boston area and Australia. Where else? Email us if you know. **Christopher Pyle - Audio and Transcript** Professor Pyle is the former US Army officer who blew the whistle on the Army's spying on US citizens during the Vietnam War. Traprock organized a press conference on July 15th. We didn't expect a crowd mid-day on a work day, but we got one, plus three newspapers and award winning videographer Robbie Leppzer. See http://traprockpeace.org Pyle revisited the government's intimidation and harassment of civilians and shows the much greater danger that we face today, given new governmental powers such as those under the Patriot Act. There laws, and new computer technologies, are endangering privacy and freedom. He teaches Constitutional Law at Mt. Holyoke College. As with the Scott Ritter audio, we want this on the radio airwaves. The mp3's are broadcast quality. **Civil Liberties and Human Rights ** a new web page at http://traprockpeace.org/civilliberties.html Go there to learn about the upcoming Civil Liberties Conference - July 25-26 - in Greenfield, MA with keynote speaker Frank Serpico, and a host of great presenters. Joining the panel just this week is Sut Jhally of the Media Education Foundation. And, the Greensboro Justice Fund has come on as co-sponsor, joining Pax Christi USA, the Peace Development Fund and a host of regional co-sponsors. The new web-page brings together in one place Traprock's efforts to provide resources and educational programs on civil liberties and human rights. We also include links to leading organizations, such as our neighbors, the Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC.org). And, we include a fine list of alternative media, since in the US, mass media has become part of the problem. See http://traprockpeace.org/civilliberties.html **Coming - more REALAUDIO of talks for slow internet connections (it's time consuming, so please bear with me!) and some surprises. You will also see extensive coverage of the Civil Liberties Conference. Expect a wealth of material out of that conference. (We have something SPECIAL planned for October 7th - hold the date!) **The Doug Rokke national DU tour is coming along very well. One or two dates may be available in August, and we're filling up September with primarily mid-west and west coast dates. Call Sunny Miller at 413-773-7427 to book Doug Rokke - an expert on DU and an excellent speaker. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
