MARTHA

If you look at the entry on this blog in August of 2006 titled Let Us Now Praise Famous Women and Men, you will see a little portrait of Martha who was head of Team Kitchen and a person whose whole life is dedicated to peace and justice.

She is among the Grannies for Peace who were arrested for protesting at a recruiting center. Many Grannies across the country have gone to jail trying to keep their grandchildren and all our young people from death, maiming of body and mind, and the terrible fate of participating in the illegal, immoral, and unjust occupation of Iraq.

Please read about Martha at this entry on the blog:
