For Whom The Bell Tolls
"You can look at war as a massing of arms and matérial and troops, but you can also see it as something else--as a delicate web of interwoven choices made by human beings, made out of a certain consciousness. The decision to order an attack, the choice to obey or disobey an order, to fire or not to fire a weapon. Armies and, indeed, any culture that supports them must convince the people that all the decisions are made already, and they have no choice. But that is never true." The Fifth Sacred Thing" by Starhawk

Dreaming a New America: Peaceful Regime Change in 2004
By Farai Chideya, AlterNet
March 20, 2003
Our dreams are the North Star by which we navigate. In hard times, they should get bigger rather than smaller. I think of the first enslaved Africans in America, standing on auction blocks, someone's dirty thumb checking their teeth as if they were horses. They dreamed of freedom, and passed that dream to children and children's children until some modicum of freedom was achieved. READ ARTICLE
Shocked Nation

By Clark Brittain
The nation was shocked by the 9/11 attacks nearly 2 years ago. Early evidence pointed to Osama bin Laden and the al Qaeda network as the culprits.
Bush asked the Taliban to hand over Bin Laden.

Your Rights: Use 'Em or Lose 'Em
By Rachel Neumann, AlterNet
May 30, 2003

When I was growing up, there was a popular bumper sticker, seen mostly on the back of old VW vans that said: "What if there was a war and nobody came?" I am reminded of that bumper sticker now, in light of this administration's unprecedented attack on civil liberties. What if our basic rights were taken away and no one noticed? What if our system of checks and balances was destroyed and everyone remained convinced it was happening to someone else? READ ARTICLE

From Cancun to the Miami FTAA Mobilization:
Victory¹s Strategic Momentum

By Starhawk

Those of us who went to Cancun to protest the World Trade Organization¹s ministerial came back with pinkeye, exhaustion, deep coughs, and heat rashes, but the rosy flush of victory made all the rest worthwhile. Sweet victory is rare in progressive, political work. Generally, we end a mobilization reminding ourselves that we are working for long term change, while the policies we are contesting remain in force. Seldom do we get to dance in the streets, celebrating an immediate collapse of some undemocratic negotiation or unjust institution. READ ARTICLE

We Were Just Talking:
(Yet) another conversation about Dennis Kucinich

Daniel Patrick Welch

I was surprised by an email from an old friend, usually apolitical, who wanted to engage me about Dennis Kucinch. While I don't always put my heart into rising to such bait, I was invigorated enough by our exchange to share it with the world:
My friend began:Danny, I have to ask...if you're intent on dispensing with Bush, why are you backing Kucinich instead of a Democratic candidate with a chance? I'm not settled on anyone as of yet--I can barely keep track of who's running--but after going with Nader in 2000, I can't stomach going with a beautiful loser Democrat on election day and then watching four more years of Bush. What are your thoughts?


"Peace Today" by Darrell Black, an american visual artist living in Frankfurt Germany.

"Nonviolence is absolute commitment to the way of love. Love is not emotional bash; it is not empty sentimentalism. It is the active outpouring of one's whole being into the being of another." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
