A time comes when silence is betrayal . . . We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak. For we are deeply in need of a new way beyond the darkness so close around us.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2007, we gathered once again in sadness, this time on the anniversary of the MCA. About 65 of us lined up on the sidewalk at Mass Ave., near Vice President Cheney’s residence, holding our signs demanding an end to torture and "extraordinary rendition," closure of Guantanamo Bay prison, and restoration of Habeas Corpus.
On this busy street, car horns beeped continuously in support, and many drivers gave us a thumbs-up sign. We will continue to protest, lobby, organize and educate--until we prevail and our Constitution is restored.
