Supporters of Assembly Bill 203, a bill to enact legal safeguards to protect Wisconsin's National Guard from unlawful overseas deloyments, will be turning out at the State Capitol in Madison on March 9 for a public hearing before the Assembly's Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. "This hearing will give us an opportunity to make the case that Guard deployments to Iraq are illegal, and to bring forth testimony about the impact of those deployments on Wisconsin's Guard and their families," said Jim Draeger, WNPJ chair and statewide coordinator of the "Bring the Guard Home - It's the Law!" campaign.
Cassandra Dixon of Mary House in WI Dells reports from the Palestinian village of Tuwani, Feb. 2010:
Hi Friends -- the past few weeks have been filled with troubles here in Tuwani.

A few days ago the army arrested a shepherd in a very violent way, pushing women from his family to the ground and headbutting another shepherd.
