Marc talks with Medea Benjamin, the cofounder of CODEPINK, a women-initiated movement to wage peace, and the founding director of Global Exchange, an international human rights organization. Medea is the co-editor of the 2005 book Stop the Next War Now: Effective Responses to Violence and Terrorism; in 2005, she was one of a thousand outstanding women nominated to receive a collective Nobel Peace Prize.
