The cofounder of CODEPINK, the Women for Peace organization, Medea Benjamin, was detained Monday, March 3rd, at the Cairo, Egypt airport. She wasn’t permitted to enter the country even though all her papers were in order. Benjamin was trying to make her way to Gaza to celebrate on March 8th, “International Women’s Day,” with a delegation of 100 women from around the world, and to also mark a day of solidarity with Gaza.
