This past week, The DC Anti-War Network (DAWN) finally decided to move past the staunchly anti-zionist, libertarian Carol Moore. Over the last three years that I've been involved with DAWN, Carol has been involved with several highly notable and public interpersonal conflicts with other DAWN participants. She has in fact been the primary cause for several people leaving DAWN permanently, and these were good folks who were thoughtful anti-war activists and decent organizers.
Most recently she has decided to attack me, not only to myself and my friends, but to my employers. This is a form of stalking, and if it continues I will have to file for a stay away order with DC Superior Court. You can find more about Carol Moore on Wikipedia. Carol has also dug up a past joke of mine, which was politically incorrect and for which I have apologized in public at least four times. She has part of this incident on her Web page, and includes some incorrect analysis along with it. She is a troubled individual who has been involved with the local war tax resistance and protests against the annual AIPAC Conference. She is dedicated to her causes, but she is extremely difficult to work with. Whenever someone criticisizes her for the way she deals with others, they are labeled as anti-feminist or defending violent street tactics.
I for one am relieved that DAWN has permanently expelled her and severed all ties. I hope we will be able to rebuild DAWN now and move past this unfortunate chapter.
