This trip is sponsored by Talkers Magazine, Talk Radio News and is traveling under Christian Solidarity International www.CSI-USA.org

Going are: Joe Madison from Radio One, Thom Hartmann from Air America, Rusty Humphries from Talk Radio Network, Jack Rice from WCCO in Minneapolis, and Ellen Ratner and Daniel Patterson from Talkers Magazine and Talk Radio News Service.

Joe Madison has been to the region three times and won Talkers Magazine "Sharon Harrison Award" for community service based on work in the Sudan with slavery and "sacks of hope"

Tens of thousands of southern Sudanese women and children have been enslaved, murdered, and driven into exile in Northern Sudan and Chad since 1983. CSI has liberated many and returned them to their homeland in southern Sudan. What happens to them next? After years of slavery and suffering, they are returning with no home and no food , facing extreme famine which will last until the next harvest in August and September. We cannot free them and forget about them! Help Them Start a New Life with a CSI SACK OF HOPE!

Christian Solidarity International is working to provide every returning family with a special start-up sack containing the essentials to begin a new life. www.csi-int.org/csi_sack_of_hope.php

each kit includes...

Tarpaulin to offer shelter from rain and sun which can also be used as a groundsheet

Blanket to keep the whole family warm on cold nights in the bush

Mosquito net for protection against insects, snakes, and scorpions

Cooking pan for boiling water and preparing millet gruel

Plastic canister to carry 5 liters of water

Hand-held sickle for cultivating food and building a home

Refugees also receive 12 kilos of millet, just enough to feed a family of five for one week

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
