    Thank YOU. I will absolutely keep everyone posted :)
    At the moment we're brainstorming organizations to approach to help organize the March, and people we'd like to invite to speak. Then comes choosing a date.

    You are absolutely right. They view those the detainees, the renditioned, and the disappeared as "other" and not as real human beings.

    We need independent, thorough and open investigations, and appropriate prosecutions to fair trials to come from those investigations. That will be a start.

                 Hugs,
                 For Dan,

      I'm with you. A March for Accountability is absolutely what we need to do.
       I believe there is enough outrage in our Nation to raise a tidal wave of real protest, whereas the phony baloney "teabaggers" did not even produce a ripple. And as the actual principles of the United States are involved, this is a wave that can only grow, and overtake those who would deny Justice in America, and the re-instatement of the Rule of Law.
       If I have one idea, it's a potential symbol for this movement: The U.S. Constitution, each demonstrator to be holding a copy, and to be carrying key portions on placards (the 8th Ammmendment, e.g.)
       And lots of American flags, as WE are the People of the U.S., the People standing up (and marching) for the Republic for which our flag stands, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

        Thank you so much.

        Or we could, with permission, carry photos of the detainees ?

                  Just a thought,
