the fight against bigotry, we stand together, and we must. In the fight
against injustice, we stand together, and we must. In the fight against
intimidation, we stand together, and we must. After all, a government
that launches wars to steal another person's birthright will do anything
to all of us."
Cynthia McKinney has made a career of speaking her mind and
challenging authority. She began on day one of her political life and
hasn’t looked back. With her opinions, actions, and even her sense of
style, McKinney has inspired both admiration and controversy.
her second term, her district was re-drawn and re-numbered the 4th
district. McKinney protested the new boundaries, but was still reelected
to the seat. She was a supporter of a Palestinian State in
Israel-occupied territory, and sparked controversy by criticizing
American policy in the Middle East. After 9/11, McKinney suggested the
President had received warnings. The criticism she received as a result,
combined with being targeted by the pro-Israel lobby, contributed to
her defeat in the 2002 election; however, she ran for the seat again and
was re-elected in 2004.
McKinney was a vocal critic of the government’s response to Hurricane
Katrina. When Nancy Pelosi encouraged a boycott of a Select Bipartisan
Committee to Investigate Hurricane Katrina, Cynthia chose instead to
participate and submitted her own report to the Congressional Record.
She continued her criticism of the Bush administration's handling of the
matter and its failure to secure a way back home for Katrina survivors.
Cynthia pressed for government transparency and accountability and
introduced legislation to release the documents related to the murders
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Tupac Shakur. She was the first
Member of Congress to file articles of impeachment against George Bush
and she voted against every war funding bill put before her. Cynthia
was forced out of Congress once more in 2007 when she was targeted for
defeat, again, by donations from pro-Israel contributors that flooded
into her opponent's campaign coffers.
Cynthia McKinney has never been afraid to speak her mind, and stand
up for what she believes in. Late in 2007, she left the Democratic Party
to take her energy and ideas to the whole country by becoming a Green
Party Presidential Candidate. Cynthia won the Green Party nomination
for U.S. President and in 2008 ran for President.
In December 2008, Cynthia made international headlines when the Free
Gaza boat she was aboard was rammed by the Israeli military as she was
attempting to deliver medical supplies to the people of Gaza during
Israel's Operation Cast Lead. Cynthia and her fellow humanitarian
activists, rescued by Lebanon, never made it to Gaza. In 2009, Cynthia
attempted to reach Gaza again, this time armed with crayons, coloring
books, and school supplies for the children. She and her fellow human
rights workers became the Free Gaza 21 after their boat was overtaken in
international waters by the Israeli military and they were kidnapped to
Israel. Cynthia spent seven days in an Israeli prison. And again,
Cynthia did not make it into Gaza. Finally, Cynthia entered Gaza by
land in July 2009 with George Galloway's 250-volunteer-strong Viva
And as a rider and a member of the support team, Cynthia recently
completed a cross-country bicycle ride with five other Bike4Peace 2010
cyclists who started in California and ended in Washington, D.C.,
speaking to the American people about the possibility of more peaceful
U.S. policies if enough of us are willing to participate in our own
positive, personal transformations.
Cynthia had not been on a bicycle in twenty years and faced many
personal obstacles along the way. However, she met this challenge with
her usual good humor and determination and by the last day of the ride
was able to complete over 60 miles on her bicycle. In August 2011,
Cynthia completed a very successful 21-city peace tour in the United
States, educating urban communities in order to promote a more peaceful
U.S. foreign policy.
In 2009, Cynthia conceived of DIGNITY as an international activist
peace organization to assert respect for human rights by taking direct
action for peace. It was under this banner that Cynthia took three
DIGNITY delegations to Libya, including one delegation of journalists
during the U.S./NATO/Israel aggression against the Arab Jamahiriya
Since 2005, Cynthia became a supporter and follower of Tun Dr.
Mahathir Mohamad’s efforts to “criminalize war.” She has appeared in
Kuala Lumpur several times, declaring that city the Peace Capital of the
World. She recently reported on her experience in Libya in the “Arab
Uprising” Conference organized by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation
and served as an official observer at the historic Kuala Lumpur War
Crimes Tribunal that, on 22 November 2011, found former President George
W. Bush and former Prime Minister Tony Blair guilty of the crime of
aggression and other crimes against the state and people of Iraq.
