"To Gag and Call it a Privilege"

This one minute clip is from Sibel's acceptance speech for the PEN American Center’s 2006 PEN/Newman’s Own First Amendment Award. The footage was taken, with permission, from the new movie about Sibel and the nuclear black market, Kill The Messenger. (blog here)

And this 5 minute clip was put together by PEN about Sibel in honour of her winning their First Amendment award.

And this touching 10 minute audio (mp3) is from an informal breakfast gathering from the morning of the PEN Award night.

Sibel is tough as nails, angry as hell, and she's also positively human. She fights like hell, but she also needs to know that we've got her back. Right now, she's asking for your help. This is her last, best chance.

If we can't convince Henry Waxman to hold hearings this coming week, it looks like she literally won't have anywhere to turn.

Please call Waxman and Conyers and demand public hearings into Sibel's case. Let us know what sort of response you got, what worked & what didn't, here.
