      Justice for Blanca Luna!� Benefit BBQ
      Saturday, August 9, 2 to 8 pm
      Corner of Harvey and Le Moyne Sts,
      Oak Park, IL

      Blanca Luna Murdered!
      "justice" for a Chicago area Latino family has predictably fallen
      short.� Despite strong evidence that Blanca Luna was murdered at an Air
      Force base in Texas, military authorities have listed her death as a
      suicide.� They are apparently motivated by a desire to avoid greater
      embarrassment and avoid paying out benefits to Blanca's family.
      ���� Blanca's story received an excellent front page write up in the Chicago Reader � see http://www.chicagoreader.com/features/stories/murderonthebase/ for the full story.

      Now Blanca's family and a committee of supporters, Comite Anti-Militarizacion, and Chicago Area CODEPINK
      are working to raise the $11,000 necessary to exhume her body, have a
      professional pathologist examine it, and force the authorities to
      concede some measure of justice. �

      Help Get Justice for Blanca Luna
      Come to an open house barbecue fundraiser for Blanca featuring the live music of "The Howard Output Experience"
      -- 2 PM to 8 PM, Saturday, August 9 at the corner of Harvey and Le
      Moyne Streets in Oak Park (1/2 block south of North Avenue and one
      block east of Ridgeland).� Minimal charges for food and drink and bake
      sale items will help the benefit, but please bring your check books to
      make extra donations! �

      The food's already paid for, so
      literally EVERYTHING will go to Blanca's justice fund. *For information
      on donating food (we need baked goods), funds, or for directions to the
      party(!), contact Julia at 773-877-8141 or email us at codepinkchicago@....

      Please make checks out to Comit� Anti-Militarizacion and specify �Blanca Luna Benefit� on the memo portion.

      If you can�t attend the house BBQ, please contribute to the online fundraising
      campaign:� Justice for Blanca Luna Fundraiser here:� http://icjpe.org/fundraisers/contribute.php?fid=6

      CODEPINK is
      a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working
      to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into
      healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities.� We are deeply indebted to Comit� Anti-Militarizacion for their leadership on Blanca's behalf.
