Sarah Martin, long-time Minneapolis peace activist met with Ahmadinejad along with about 150 peace activists, This is the third time Martin has, “Exercised her democratic right to speak to a head of state who is in the cross hairs of U.S. aggression.”
Ahmadinejad was in New York for his annual and final address to the United Nations.
After statements by some present, Ahmadinejad spoke to the group. Martin found him, “Compelling, intriguing, not at all the demon that he’s made out to be.”
“This ‘dictator’ cannot run for election again,” added Martin

Now I suppose ALL of us will be closely examined by the U.S. government because we hang around opposing war and destruction and broaden our perspectives by listening to a woman who listens to various voices from around the world.
