The Next Time You Hear the Words Peace and Justice...

U.S. progressives meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad | Fight Back!

... look to see who is speaking. It may be someone like Sarah Martin of Freedom Road Socialist Organization who, along with 100 other American 'progressives', met with Mr. and Mrs. Ahmadinejad while they were visiting New York this week. This is what Martin said of the encounter: “Speaking with Mrs. Ahmadinejad and hearing the president reinforced the importance of struggling against the U.S. campaign to isolate and demonize Iran. I think the meeting was important because we had the opportunity to meet with so many dedicated grassroots activists from all over the country and share our hopes for peace and justice with the Iranian people through their president and his wife.” 
Nuff said?

Meanwhile, here are some images from the recent School of Visual Arts exhibit of 150 posters about the Iranian protests of 2009, Where is My Vote, a more honest depiction of the desire for peace and justice. Wouldn't you say?
