We the undersigned, as responsible citizens of this planet, hereby proclaim the urgent universal need for sustained security through peace, for present and future generations of the human family.
In order that we all may live and prosper in dignity, we acknowledge the need for a genuine worldwide commitment by all people to break the dehumanizing chains of the savageries of militarism, of economic exploitation, of slaveries, of torture, of killing, and of all aspects of the culture of war and brutality that compromise the very survival of civilization on this planet.
We proclaim that the present geo-political-economic-social system is fundamentally incapable of delivering us from the merchants of war and exploitation and is completely devoid of offering positive, alternative solutions. Thus we come together as brothers and sisters to strive for peace and our collective freedom from violence and other oppressions.
Well, guess what? Today's article from Reuters says, "Shares of VeriChip Corp (CHIP.O) tripled after the company said it had been granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it to develop implantable virus detection systems in humans."
Please think good and hard about what it means for every man, woman and child to be injected with microchips. It's worse than being tattooed with unique identifiers like Jews in a prison camp -- bodily functions can actually be monitored and controlled from a distance with technology now in existence. What about future technology, or stuff we don't even know about? Please do your research, folks. Injecting everybody with microchips would strip everyone of any semblance of privacy. I speak more about this on my radio commentary We're People, Not Numbers (press the red button to download).
From the youtube site: It rained all day, but nothing could dampen the spirits of the 9/11 Truth activists that gathered in New York City last Friday for the eighth anniversary of the WTC attacks. The crowd was pulsing with positive energy and this video contains highlights of the march through downtown Manhattan. You won't see this on the major TV networks (unless you live in Russia) so help out by sending this video to everyone you know!
Special thanks to everyone who came and gave support, and to WeAreChange for organizing the event
Please rate, comment, share, and leave video responses! Thanks for watching! Shot in anamorhpic 16:9 on my old hi8 video camera
I've always liked this song by Cat Stevens, and the Lorax by Dr. Seuss, this powerful video brings them together very nicely.
If you're at all concerned about the environment, keep in mind that one of the very best things you can do for it is to simply stop eating meat. I just read this featured article on Portland Indymedia, it's very thought provoking.
In the week after Sept. 11th, 2001, thousands of Muslims, including many Iranians, lit candles for victims of terrorist acts in the USA. America has been such a bad neighbor since then, it's been easy to forget how much support she had worldwide in the immediate aftermath of these horrible crimes. This year, how about lighting a candle and putting it in your window in an act of solidarity and rememberance? Here's a website that talks about it: Light the Night for Peace and Friendship. I participated in this last year, too. If you're worried about catching your curtains on fire, battery-operated tea candles are fairly cheap and worry-free, plus they're great for candlelight vigils on windy days!
I believe it's up to each and every one of us to contribute our own special talents to make this world a better place for all of us. I'm currently locked out of my political Twitter account (@jodypaulson), but I highly recommend @greentaralady for lighter, greener fare.
Grandfather, look at our brokenness. We know that in all creation only the human family has strayed from the sacred way. We know that we are the ones who are divided and we are the ones who must come back together to walk in the sacred way. Grandfather, sacred one, teach us love, compassion, and honor that we may heal the earth and heal each other.
