This is an interview done by Janet while in FDR Park during the DNC waiting for Jill Stein to speak.  While speaking to Salvatore another lady (Martha Rollins) spoke up and gave her rendition of what happened.   Martha was there with Code Pink at the time of Berta’s murder. Interesting and somewhat disturbing!

In her final days, Berta Cáceres was bombarded with texts and calls warning her to give up the fight against the Agua Zarca dam, or else.

There’s so much going on that people are not being made aware of and it pains me to see how folks are prepared to follow blindly ….based on limited information.

After leaving Philly I can say there are thousands of disgruntled people trying to have a voice, but the media are not covering the story. At the DNC….50k in the streets and over 10k in the park the night the delegates walked out. We no longer have to vote for the lesser of two evils. I’m concerned that those who just want to see a woman in office will make poor decisions. Yes, we need a woman, but not Hilary! We have plenty of great women in this country who would make a great president. But our choices are always limited to those who are the chosen ones! I’m not buying it and others are NOT buying it either. I’ve spent 5 years staying connected to people in the know. I feel I’ve earned the right to state my convictions and back them with plenty of facts. I’ve toured the country for over 3 years listening to ordinary people and then toured with Iraq Vets Against War…. soldiers who came home broken,beaten and struggling to understand this crazy country that continues to use them as canon fodder.

The “Code Pink” women managed another protest  at the DNC, where signs were unfurled and a message was told.  That message:  Free the Whistle Blowers! & Stop the Drones!

All was good until they found Crystal (who blocked a few views) then escorted her into the lobby area where they then circled her with 8 or more security goons.

Crystal was nervous since they were detaining her without charging.  Immediate I asked why she was being detained when there were others who had been holding signs up in the convention (more…)
