Medea keynote at Peace Action Maine annual supperMay 7, 2011
CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin was the keynote speaker at Peace Action Maine's annual Give Peas a Chance supper. Her remarks followed a lively program with the local Rawandan Dance Troupe, and a presentation by the PAM Youth Network. Medea spoke about her time in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the need for vigorous activism in the age of Obama, and her plans for the next Gaza flotilla. She reported on her conversation with a man outside the venue holding a sign with the false claim that Codepink hates Jews. Medea spoke movingly of her own journey to activism on behalf of justice in Palestine, and what that means for many Jewish Americans. She received a standing ovation.
