Listen to George Galloway and Friends
Rock the House to Close Historic Day in Washington, D.C.

"We have to raise our demands. We don't want Bush out of the Whitehouse, we want Bush in prison with Blair and all the other war criminals who have brought us to this pass." - George Galloway

As Muhammed Ali said: "No Viet Cong ever called me nigger. And I will not fight for Democracy in Vietnam when I cannot fight for Democracy in Mississippi." Prophetic words coming after Hurricane Katrina showed the world that the government that claims to be able to rebuild nations, cannot save its own citizens..." - Ahmed Shawki

"I have asked Tony Blair to meet me for a year, and his answer always is 'I don't wand to debate a grieving mother.' We know why he doesn't want to debate a grieving mother." - Rose Gentle

"Only when the the United States is at peace with itself can it be at peace with this world. We cannot allow the administration to deny the people of the Gulf Coast and New Orleans the right to return as they deny the Palestinians the right to return." - Elias Rashmawi

"They hated the occupation, they hated the power that oppressed them. But whenever there was room for dialogue, there was dialogue. Whenever there was room for tea, there was tea. Whenever there was room for food, there was food and they shared it with us. They shared their Holy Koran with me, a Christian occupier of their land. So the notion that they need 160,000 foreign troops in order to succeed is offensive to me." - Camilo Mejia

George Galloway, Member of Parliament - UK (Respect Unity Coalition), spoke to a capacity audience at the First Congregational Church in Washington, DC. Ralph Nadar and Dennis Brutus were special guests, while Louisiana activists were honored (see below). Appearing with Galloway were, in order of speaking, Virginia Harabin (moderator); Mounzer Sleiman, PhD, who made welcoming remarks on behalf of National Council of Arab Americans; Camilo Mejia, Army soldier who refused to fight in Iraq; he is a conscientious objector and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War; Elias Rashmawi, National Council of Arab Americans; Rose Gentle, founding member of Military Families Against the War (UK); and Ahmed Shawki, Editor, International Socialist Review and Board member of National Council of Arab Americans - he introduced George Galloway.

Monique Dols, Campus Antiwar Network Coordinating Committee member, with Louisiana activists Meredyth Friend, Avery Friend and Ward Reilly. The Louisiana activists were honored and Ward was acknowledged for his having been a founding member of the Coalition Against War and Injustice in Baton Rouge and for having a lead role in organizing the Peace Train that brought several hundred Southern actrivists to DC that day for the national protest. The Peace Train was to have left from New Orleans; this was impossible, obviously, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Peace Train left from Meridian, Mississippi. photo © 2005 Charles Jenks; all rights reserved
