Wed. Feb. 20: no show on KPFK today — pre-empted for the fund drive.
But there is more stuff to read:
More than 1,000 feminists have signed a statement criticizing Hillary Clinton and supporting Obama for president – evidence that Clinton’s support among women activists continues to decline. The group, “Feminists for Peace“, started out with 100 signers before the super-Tuesday primaries, and has 1,200 signers two weeks later.
Clinton’s support for the war in Iraq was the leading reason she lost the support of the feminists, along with the fact that “until quite recently [she] opposed all legislative efforts to bring the war and occupation to an end.”
Those endorsing Obama include writer Barbara Ehrenreich; longtime peace activist Cora Weiss; Katha Pollitt, columnist for The Nation; Pulitzer-prize winning New York Times writer Margo Jefferson; women’s rights historians Alice Kessler Harris and Linda Gordon, and actor/activist Susan Sarandon.
