An Inclusive Litany


From the newsletter of ActForChange, a group that facilitates various "activism opportunities" for progressive social change, September 27, 2001:
We have even located a way to contact the only accessible public representative of the Taliban! ... It remains important to let decision-makers know that we are engaged in civic life and attentive to the responses being made on behalf of the American people... Please consider the following actions... Tell the Taliban What You Think. The Taliban has been roundly condemned in the international community for providing a safe haven for Osama bin Laden and other known terrorists in the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Centers [sic] and the Pentagon. If you wish to send a message to Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, the Taliban Ambassador to Pakistan, calling on the group to turn over bin Laden and ease the oppression of women and relief workers in Afghanistan, ActForChange will print out your e-mail and mail or fax it to him.
