The UK-based news and activism site, NewsInkling, has posted a story on the case of Pfc. LaVena Johnson. The story’s author, Waterflake, draws on the recent report by the Center for Media and Democracy, “War vs. Democracy: Untold Stories from the Lynch / Tillman Hearing.” The piece was co-authored by SP Biloxi of Justice League who has also written about LaVena. Many thanks to the both of them!

The petition asking that the Senate and House Armed Services Committees compel the Army to investigate anew the death of Pfc. LaVena Johnson stands at just over 3500 names at the moment. It has taken some three months to reach this point.

The petition to change the logo for the London 2012 Olympics passed 10,000 signatures in less than a day.
