Since Bush's war on "terror" how many people in this country have disappeared? I know of muslims who have vanished or detained. I have at least one friend/brother who was an immigrant and homeless that I have been searching for for over a year. I know of two very active people in a sociopolitical movement that have since stopped communicating to everyone in a shared movement. Could we count our loved ones sent off to be murdered in illegal wars as part of the Disappeared? And how many of them died because of "friendly fire" for not obeying orders or even out right mutany? Are there any amongst us that have lost friends and loved ones mysteriously who were active in our community?
Of course we are living in a time when Negroponte, Gonzales, Chertoff and other notorious Inquesitionors lurk.
So I am curious as to knowing if others especially those associated with social causes and political movements have had friends and loved ones who have disappeared?
And if this is occuring in our communities then should we not contact Amnesty International or at least start communications and lists?
