Memorial for Pat Chin

Close to 200 people gathered at the Lang Center in New York June 25 to remember Workers World Contributing Editor Pat Chin, who died of breast cancer May 16. The meeting, billed as a celebration of her life, featured talks, performances, photo and literature displays and a videotape, all paying tribute to this remark able revolutionary and her contributions to the struggle for socialism.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Haiti’s National People’s Party Secretary General Ben Dupuy, Korea Truth Commission leader Yoomi Jeong, anti-death-penalty lawyer Joan Gibbs, and Yugoslav anti-imperialist writer Nadja Tesich addressed the gathering. A long lineup of Workers World Party members also paid tribute[2].

Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama

In early 2008 Joan Gibbs of National Conference of Black Lawyers signed a petition circulated by Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama[3].

In the coming elections, it is important to remember that war and peace are as much \"women\'s issues\" as are health, the environment, and the achievement of educational and occupational equality. Because we believe that all of these concerns are not only fundamental but closely intertwined, this Tuesday we will be casting our vote for Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.
