About David Swanson
Author, activist, agitator: b. 1969
I have the opportunity to travel to Iran in April with some of the best peace activists in the United States on a mission of peace. We will report on everything we are able to do and learn. I can only go if you can help me fund the trip. Please chip in anything you can here http://davidswanson.org/donate
NB: We are waiting for our visas. If the visas do not come through, funds you've donated will be used when the trip can be rescheduled or will be put to other good use in the cause of peace.
