must insist on paying reparations and choose to lay aside the cruel
futility of our forever wars.
Protest against war in Afghanistan; San Francisco, Oct. 20, 2001.
On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, I was among a small group of U.S. citizens who sat on milk crates or stood holding signs across from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Manhattan. We had been fasting from solid foods for a month, calling for an end to brutal economic warfare waged against Iraq through the imposition of U.N. sanctions.
RCMP Brutality Against Fairy Creek Protectors Escalates
by Elders for Ancient Trees
September 9, 2021
From the Elders for Ancient Trees newsletter:
"RCMP brutality and arrests continue apace. Yesterday, (September 8th, 2021) they smashed a van window, dragged out the elderly woman sleeping inside then ran over her vehicle with a backhoe. Here's the result"
seems that despite a general public outcry, dozens of official
complaints, and Judge Thompson's ruling that RCMP tactics and exclusion
zones are excessive and illegal, the RCMP answers to no one. And the
ultimate tragedy---apart from watching Teal Jones trucks pull out old
growth logs as fast as possible---is that RCMP barbarism is directed at
peaceful Indigenous and settler protesters trying to help the government
keep its promise about protecting the precious little---but precious
nonetheless---old growth remaining.

If ever there was a man who displayed on his face the evil in his
mind, it was Zbigniew Brzezinski (lead image, left), the national
security advisor for President Jimmy Carter (right) when the US plot to
start the war against the Soviet Union on the Afghan front was hatched
“Now we can lure the Russians into the Afghan trap,” he wrote
Carter in a secret note of February 1979.
