Rumble faces consequences for refusing UK’s demand to ban Russell Brand, by Glenn Greenwald 

For the children of Gaza
We sing for those who died in the silence
For those who died weeping
For those who died screaming
For those who died quietly
From hunger and lack of clean water.
We sing for those who dream,
stubbornly, for justice
For those who laugh in the darkness
For those who die singing
For those who work
Endlessly labor
For life, for freedom
For we know that greed and despair
Poverty and torture and war
Are not our true selves
And that love and gentle resolve
Our song and our silence
Are stronger than death
And that,
at the end,
They will not falter
This poem was written by an unknown Chilean poet during the Pinochet years of mass deaths and torture inflicted on the people of Chile and takes on broader meaning in light of the mass murders by bombings in Gaza. Thank you to Paul Baker Hernandez who is visiting the U.S. from Nicaragua for sharing this poem/song.



Global and Local Peace and Justice for All 

Be Engaged in Activism

Cultivate Collaborative Communities

Normalize Resistance         Rest and Rise


“Power is global and politics is local. That must change. We need a new language for understanding new global power formations as well as new international modes of politics to fight them.

Social movements must move outside of national boundaries and join with others across the globe to fight the savagery of neoliberal global politics and central to such a task is the work of intellectuals, artists, cultural workers, and others who can fashion new tools and social movements in the fight against the current anti-democratic threats being imposed all over the globe.”

               — Henry A Giroux

A vision of change.
Based on the nineteenth century Flammarian engraving
The ‘apocalyptic’ chess game between the superpowers, that is, between those that move on the highest plane of our civilization, is being played according to the rule ‘if either “wins” it is the end of both’; it is a game that bears no resemblance to whatever war games preceded it. Its ‘rational’ goal is deterrence, not victory, and the arms race, no longer a preparation for war, can now be justified only on the grounds that more and more deterrence is the best guarantee of peaceTo the question how shall we ever be able to extricate ourselves from  the obvious insanity of this position  there is no answer.”                       — Hannah Arendt in On Violence

“Resistance is no longer an option,
it is 
now a matter of life or death.
The lights are going out on democracy
across the globe and the time to wake up
from this nightmare is now.”
