Tuesday's guest: Jerica Arents of Voices for Creative Nonviolence














Tuesday, March 22nd, 11 a.m. Pacific (9-10 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast...

Jerica Arents completed her M.A. in Social Justice at Loyola University at Chicago in 2010. She co-coordinates Voices for Creative Nonviolence (VCNV) and lives with the White Rose Catholic Worker community. She has authored articles about VCNV protests against predator drones and the torture murders of the Guantanamo "suicides," and has been arrested while protesting these and other abominations.

Jerica traveled to Afghanistan in October, 2010 with VCNV, the Chicago-based group last year's radio guest Kathy Kelly works with, and has written about the experience here and here, among other places.

“It’s all rhetoric and words that America is defending the rights of women”, said an articulate young woman named Zerghuna. With women and children dying daily not only from being caught in the crossfire, but also from the effects of poverty, malnutrition, and lack of available health care, they are skeptical about the justifications used by foreign forces around women’s rights.

  1. Hey Kevin, how about you have Willie Rodriguez and me on your show and I'll show exactly how he's been incredibly destructive to the truth movement and finish his hero career once and for all?

    (Not like you or Annie were ever dumb enough to believe his obvious bullshit.)

    How about bringing Craig Ranke back? I'll kick his scrawny ass too.
