Over the past three years, the Wheels of Justice Tour has sent people who have spent time in Iraq and Palestine to thousands of venues in hundreds of cities across the United States. Traveling in a biodiesel powered tour bus, participants share their firsthand experiences living with war and occupation in those countries. In early October, the Tour stopped at several locations in Pittsburgh, where speakers Twyla Miller and Joe Mueller talked about their recent trips in the Middle East.
Twyla Miller traveled from Detroit to the West Bank in 2003, 2004, and 2005 to work with the International Solidarity Movement. She visited Nablus, Tulkarem, Bilin’, Hebron, and other villages and cities to participate in checkpoint watches and nonviolent vigils and rallies. Joe Mueller lives in Cleveland, Ohio as a member of the Cleveland Catholic Worker Community. Joe was a member of the Christian Peacemaker Teams’ September 2005 delegation to Iraq, where he met with Iraqis living and working in Baghdad, Kerbala, and Najaf.
The two spoke at Carnegie Mellon University on October Fourth.
