Cynthia Banas: Bringing Peace and Justice to the World

In January 2015 and again the following April, I had the honor to interview Upstate NY resident and lifetime peace activist Cynthia Banas at the Slocum House in Syracuse NY.

Now 85 years of age, Cynthia speaks about her life's work in Iraq, Haiti, Guatemala and most recently at the drone base at Hancock Field in the Town of DeWitt NY.

In March 2003, as an act of solidarity with the Iraqi people and protest against the upcoming war, she and 30 other Americans put their lives at risk to visit Baghdad Iraq to live through the American bombing campaign called "Shock and Awe". Cynthia tells what it's like living under weeks long bombing raids, what she saw in the Baghdad hospitals prior to the war, what happened to the Iraqi cultural institutions in the aftermath of the war, and what it's like to experience the jails of Syracuse NY.

Please be Shocked and Awed by what Cynthia has to say about her wonderful life.

The title of today’s show is: Cynthia Banas: Bringing Peace and Justice to the World
