Eastham, 4/9/2005. Wearing green for peace at Representative Delahunt's Open House. Delahunt agreed to sign a resolution to plan immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq - and followed through.

Ignorance is bliss (passing demonstrators with hundreds of placards stating 'Worst President Ever') - DC 1/20/05. One sign said, "50.8% - What mandate, you nitwit?".

Eyes Wide Open Exhibit:
a powerful memorial to those who have been killed by our government's thirst for oil, power and world domination. It acknowledges all who have died for this folly.

This travelling exhibit was in Falmouth July 15, 2004, and Chatham on July 16. For the full touring schedule click here.

Sue Niederer said she was refused permission to see the return of her son Seth Dvorin's body as it was flown into the Dover base. Lieutenant Dvorin, 24, from the 101st Airborne Division, was killed in February while trying to disarm a roadside bomb, a task for which he was not trained.
Speaking from her home in New Jersey, Mrs. Niederer said: "They killed my son and they did not permit me to be there to see the coffin. They said it was for health reasons, and ... they did not want the public to see it and they did not want the newspapers there." She added: "They don't want any of this being shown because it's reality. A coffin strikes home. If you don't see the coffin you just say: 'Oh, there's another one who has died.' But when you show the coffin, you show families, you show people and emotions. This is what they are doing - this is what they do not want you to see."
