“…coming from all over the country to protest the DNC and show the world that there are people in this country that are resolutely opposed to an attack on iran, furthering the wars in afghanistan and iraq for even one more day, the looming threat of American theocracy and in short the whole program begun by Bush.”

Lu Chun-Chao, former Hunter Student.

WORD Special Correspondent Jonathan Mena says he will be checking out Lu Chun-Chao’s reminder. Chun-Chao also wrote: “I’m helping organize the protests from NYC; I do know some people who would love to be interviewed by your paper, some who are organizing the protests on a national level and some who are going themselves. I don’t know right now of any Hunter students going”

Chun-Chao said that Cindy Sheehan; Vietnam war vet and author Ron Kovic; Debra Sweet, director of World Can’t Wait, revolutionary activist and journalist Sunsara Taylor; Militiary Mother Elaine Brower and author Larry Everest will be there. Contact information for interviews: Linda Rigas – 714.235.8213 or Debra Sweet 718.809.3803.

I have been really impressed with my students preparation for this historic event. And so I want to give a behind-the-scenes look at what they are doing to prepare. Mena allowed me to show some of his tests as long as I make sure that the real final projects are uploaded and clearly identified.

Below is a test. It will be revised shortly.
