(IF you are looking for the US health care items, plz go one post below or you may want items on nomorecrusades dot blogspot dot com )

The “Weaving a Net of Accountability” conference on North Carolina ’s role in US torture and rendition is less than three weeks away! For more information, Plz GO to accountabilityfortorturenc dot org

It’s made the news in Ireland, where our invited speaker from ShannonWatch, Dr. Edward Horgan, still waits to learn if he will get a new visa in time to fly to North Carolina

INTERFAITH SERVICE: Please encourage people to attend the Interfaith Service on Torture that precedes Scott Horton’s talk on April 8. We will soon have a flier for the service. It is being organized by Rabbi Raachel Jurovics of Cary and Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University, and will be an inspiring event. The service is 5:30 to 6:15 pm at Goodson Chapel, Duke Divinity School. Directions to Duke Divinity School : here . Map and parking: here

HORTON TALK STARTS at 7:30 pm on April 8 in Love Auditorium, which is in the Levine Science Research Center at Duke University . It’s walking distance from the Interfaith Service, and there will be simple food for purchase in-between. Map: here

RSVP: Are you planning to attend the conference on April 9, from 9 am to 5 pm, at the John Hope Franklin Center ? It’s free, but we need a count for breakfast and lunch. Please RSVP to contact@ncstoptorturenow.net .

VIDEO: The 6-minute conference video is a great way to learn some basics and to get the word out! here

Editorial in the Irish Sunday Tribune on Sunday, 21 March 2010

“What an interesting coincidence, then, that in the very same week in which Obama was acknowledging our plucky commitment to the American war effort, Horgan's 10-year US visa was unexpectedly revoked. Horgan had been due to speak at a conference against torture and extraordinary rendition at Duke University in North Carolina next month. (That's North Carolina , mind you – not quite the heartland of the American anti-war intelligentsia.)”
