THE DR. DHAFIR SUPPORT COMMITTEE REQUESTS YOUR HELP: PLEASE WRITE TO THE POST STANDARD AND ASK IT TO PUBLISH JOHN PILGER’S ARTICLE ABOUT DR. DHAFIR

Below is an email I sent to the paper on November 8th and I’ve had no

response. Please be courteous in your correspondence.  And please forward

this request to any lists you think appropriate.

“Dear Janis Barth and Rich Sullivan,

Cc Mike Connor and Stan Linhorst

I’m writing to ask you to republish an article about the case of Dr. Rafil

Dhafir in the Syracuse Post Standard.  The article, ”The End of Justice in

America“ is by veteran journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger and

was published in today’s New Statesman. John Pilger has very kindly offered

to waive any fee for republishing the article, provided you print it exactly

as it’s printed in the New Statesman.  The Post Standard’s coverage of this

case has never given the Syracuse public an opportunity to view the case

from any other point of view than the government’s and publishing this

article would be a perfect opportunity to redress some of the balance.

Sincerely,

Katherine Hughes”
