    Unfortunately, there is not much unity for these actions, and the Antiwar Movement remains deeply split and separated by sectarianism from taking joint action ahead. United for Peace and Justice continue to work completely separate from the ANSWER people, as well as does Move On.

    The liberal church crowd and the Democratic Party glued types refuse to work on anything nationally together with ANSWER. It is to Cindy Sheehan’s credit that she is not doing the same.

    And where is Ralph Nader though? He should join with Sheehan to support these actions. And where is Noam Chomsky’s voice? He should do the same.
