Titel: Other Lands Have Dreams
Sub titel: From Baghdad to Pekin Prison
In the spring of 2004, human rights activist Kathy Kelly, twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, was sent to Pekin Federal Prison for leading a protest at the School of Americas. While in prison, Kelly's organization, Voices in the Wilderness, was targeted by a US State Department lawsuit charging that Kelly violated US-imposed sanctions when she took humanitarian aid to Iraq during numerous visits over the last five years. In this fiercely eloquent book, Kelly recounts such trips to Iraq, tells the largely unknown story of the School of Americas, and describes daily life inside a federal prison, where America's poor are warehoused. Like Martin Luther King's "Letter from Birmingham Jail," Kelly's powerful narrative gives voice to the unheard millions suffering at home and abroad.
