WASHINGTON – Hot on the heels of the Cindy Sheehan media circus in Crawford comes word that Jane Fonda will ride again as an anti-war crusader, kicking off a nationwide barnstorming tour next month.
Fonda, still a lightning rod for Vietnam veterans because of her trips to North Vietnam more than 30 years ago, will accompany George Galloway, the radical member of the British Parliament, in a tour of the country to condemn the Iraq war.
"I'm really pleased and excited to be going back to America to campaign against this illegal war and occupation," said Galloway. "And to have Jane Fonda join me is fantastic. I'll be able to get that autograph at last. I'm sure that when the full implications of the constitutional settlement lashed-up by the puppet Iraqi government are understood that opposition will grow massively."
