Derisive diatribes about the state of the nation, nation states and swerving leftward
18 April 2005
Rights activist and aid worker Marla Ruzicka, 28, was killed in a car bomb explosion in Baghdad on 17 April. She was travelling on the road to Baghdad airport when a private security convoy ahead of them was targeted by a suicide bomber. Marla founded the Washington-based Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC), which worked to obtain financial compensation for the innocent victims of war. We will remember her as someone who sacrificed her life for others and championed the cause of the weak and oppressed.
