Sunday Song from Odessa

Made it into Odessa, Ukraine thru passport control without a question.....local support waiting for us to take us to hotel. Got some needed sleep. Today is the memorial at Trades Hall, not sure what to expect. Two US Senators promised to call State Dept on our behalf urging safe event.....

Just noticed six busloads of police/Army outside our hotel at 7:30 am......

Regis and I went downstairs for breakfast with an Italian activist who also arrived last night....two of them from Italy here. Told us that two French were turned back at airport and we also heard that two Germans were turned back as well when they arrived in Odessa.

Please keep sharing information worldwide about the May 2 Mothers Memorial Committee demand that there be an independent international investigation of the May 2, 2014 massacre at the Trades Union Hall in Odessa.  

The US-NATO puppet government in Kiev has not yet, and never will, do anything to prosecute those responsible for the killing of well over 50 people.  (In spite of the fact there is massive video evidence of neo-Nazis shooting guns at those clinging from the windows of the burning building and other Nazis throwing Molotov cocktails into the building.)  Several hundred were also injured on May 2 and many disappeared after being taken to hospital or police stations that sad day.  

In honor of Father Daniel Berrigan who died this weekend I leave you with his words:  "The difference between doing something and doing nothing is everything."
