Wicked! This is a true today as it has always been. The ELF and the ALF follow these guidelines and yet they are labeled terrorists today.........

There is really only one truth isn't there?---That you must be aware of what is happening, and do what you can to right wrongs and keep those wrongs from happening in the first place.

Here is a Leonard Peltier quote that speaks that very same truth:

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out and resonate
in every word and deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There’s no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message.

---In the spirit of Crazy Horse,
Leonard Peltier

Ratty Ratman (140) Sunday November 18, 2007, 8:38 pm-How can we help the people's effort to demilitarize the Port of Olympia and end the war on Iraq?

Here are a few places either with new info on the people's effort to demilitarize the Port of Olympia and end the war on Iraq or some blogs you can post in.

Please if you can not go there, spread word on it to everyone you can and post about it everywhere including pushing media (such as here: http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=111 ) to report fair objective reports of this and that includes the reasons why people would go to this length...which includes the fact that it's an illegal war, our own intelligence agencies have said we are making enemies because of the war and occupation and so on.

Some of these links have blogs, please also post your support and reasons why people need to support this on the blogs, we need our voice heard.

Here's a search with 275 results, please put some time into this.

In Peace and Solidarity,
Rats

PS, We need people and support out there, but if you can't go or support them there, we need to block all the machinery of war which includes recruitment centers, companies that make and transport weapons and machinery and of course military bases.

Again, here's media, make them report truth for a change:

Thank you, Sunshine, for this post ! It is very moving, to see the mega demonstrations and remember the opposition that grew and grew; and to hear Zinn address the FBI agents in the crowd and then Elsberg tell how it cost Zinn, since they singled him out for beating and arrest. That I didn't know.

And I love the quote from Zinn's mother, when journalists ask the 80-yr-old lady how she feels about her son breaking the law, and she says "It isn't God's law" Yes, that really IS the point, any law can be repealed, any new law can completely change the illegal to legal and vice versa ! Beautiful !

Thank you, too, to the commentator up there, Ratty Ratman, who gives us the Leonard Pelletier quote to inspire us !
